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.


I'm guessing with the state of the economy, the Nigerian philanthropist will be getting more and more email like this ...

If he is really helping people in need, I could use some help. I lost my job and have no more unemployment. I am unable to find a job, because of the state of the economy. I worked all my life and now I cannot help myself or my family.

More people have reported finding The BBook of Geek on their doorstep, and decided to record the moment using advanced digital photography techniques...

Hello Brian,

How are you? I've ordered your BBook some time ago and last week I was happy to find it in my mail! So, well, now your the reach of your book has extended to The Netherlands as well! I've taken the liberty to attach a small webcam-picture of me with the bbook. Not the best photograph, but I guess this ís actually the place in my home where you would find me a lot, so it's a real action-shot, so to say.

Thank you very much, I really enjoyed the book!

The BBook Action Shot

A webcam shot is an action shot for me too.

Thank you very very much! I thought you might appreciate another photo of the book in the wild for the site. ;-) I hope you sell tons and tons of books! WORLD DOMINATION!


I love action shots. Send them in! And finally in BBook email...

To: Brian Briggs <>

got my confirmation from usps + paypal, and it says:

Your item was processed and left our ROMULUS, MI 48174 facility on November 7, 2008. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later.

it's coming from romulus? i either missed you promoting that or you should promote it

Routing the BBooks through Vulcan seemed much more logical, but proved to be too expensive.

Weekly Limerick

The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. Seth also has a new book out that you should take a look at...

Seth has been sending over limericks for many weeks without any Mailbag. Thanks to him you've got many to enjoy now...

From: Seth

A young Sheikh, Abdulla bin Hamad,
With the King of Bahrain as his dad,
  Paid Michael Jackson's fees,
  Then said, "Music. Now. Please?"
But the Smooth Criminal had gone Bad.
