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.

Just curious about the article I read dated September 23rd. Please confirm the validity, I am not a charity case but would like to send an email to Mr. Esenam Ayele.

I'm not a "charity case," but I want his money.

I'm going to be on the Tyra Banks Show! Well, at least the teenage girl I'm impersonating might be. Here's her MySpace profile...

Hi there,
My name is Michelle and i work at the Tyra Banks Show. I would love to talk to you about your myspace incident. Please give me a call at xxx-xxx-xxxx....thanks! michelle

The best way is to come over to my house! My mom is going to be gone shopping at the outlet mall for a few hours tomorrow!

One Farker doesn't quite get the point of our Smartphone Showdown...

So.. this article was written by a fanboy probably, so it's useless, especially since it doesn't compare anything that has any intelligence to it.

Diggers can always be counted on to BBelieve. Here they are BBelieving our "RIAA making a donation to SETI" story...

A ploy to improve the public's opinion of the RIAA.

Won't work on me.

Marriage Proposal

OK, here's the first marriage proposal I've gotten in the seven years I've been running BBspot. I knew I should've stopped doing the personals mockeries long ago...

The web cam images and fake write ups are very entertaining, but having seen this one:

Why you should get to know me: "Because I'm 36 and can still admit that I always make time to watch The Simpsons, Futurama, ST:TNG, ST:TOS, Firefly, Farscape, Babylon 5, Dr. Who, Monty Python's Flying Circus."

I have one thing to ask; will you marry me? I'm a guy so it could complicate things but America is pretty liberal these days, no?

Keep up the good work everyone at BBspot, the site has kept me entertained for years, often find co-workers looking at me as I chuckle.

Damn, if only I had waited to get married.

Weekly Limerick

The winner of this year's Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. I haven't decided where to put it yet, so this week's I'll put in the Mailbag...

From: Seth

Skype's creators have just introduced
A new Internet-TV called "Joost".
Choose your shows? Watch for free?
That's true now for TV.
If there's not more, then I'm not sedoost.

That's all for this week!
