BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Those Shakira fans sure are bright bulbs. ...

I found that link after receiving these next two e-mails in quick succession. I knew something was up...

Shakira is very eutiful, if you ask me the most beutiful & talented singer out there. Her new Dvd/Cd "Live & Off The Record" is very cool, very unique.

I even think it is better that Jlo's ass. This girl has everything, face, body(ass), Talent, exept bobbys, so that we dont confuse them whit mountains!

Gotta love them bobbys!

Why do you allow JESUS to be disrespected? I'm serious. You are not that kind of person . Why then?


You don't know me very well, do you?

You run a cool website and have provided a lot of funny articles over time, but sorry man, the last article on Jesus just went too far...I know you don't have any sacred cows in your life, but this is one thats worthwhile getting 'sacred' about...I never used to believe it myself, but Jesus transforms lives and I recommend giving him a go...see you 'round...

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I'll pass.

I, Robot

Subject: I, disappointing.

(Preface: compliment site in general. State length of readership. Declare that once you totally got a letter posted in the mailbag. Act as if this means you two are close friends. Compliment site again in a jocular manner. Move on to actual topic.)

I'm writing because I'm pissed off at the new "I, Robot" movie. So pissed off, in fact, that I'd appreciate it if you would take a look at this petition here.

You see, I'm pissed off because I'm a geek. I'm a geek who always used to like to read science fiction. And I hear that they're turning one of my favorite books into a movie. Hurray. They did that to Minority Report and LotR and both were good. And now I see that instead "I, Robot" will be trash. Completely unlike the book.

I know online petitions do absolutely nothing (especially with no signatures) but I decided I might as well send it to every email address I know. You fool, placing your email out there for the entire world to see!

P K is now my new best friend.

Limerick Contest

Not everybody agreed with our choice for the top prize. One reader was inspired to write a limerick about it...

Subject: Geek limerick winner... my gawd!

The winning limerick droned on
I read the damn thing until dawn
Longer than Lord of the Rings
There needed to be more Kings
Or at least some effects to rely upon

Sign of the Apocalypse

That's all for this week!
