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.


The first BBeliever comes from France, where they'll believe anything. He's wondering whether Bill Gates called Linux the best OS ever...

I just read your article, but i can't believe that is true. Where did you get that information ? Is it a fake ?

Please let me know the truth.

I let him know the real truth, but I don't think he BBelieved me.

The next BBeliever originates from an old standby, the Nigerian billionaire.

How can I get some of this money?

No sob story. No polite introductions. Just "show me the money!" I don't think that's the type of person Esenam Ayele is looking for.

And here's one from his MySpace profile...

Subject: Would like to learn more about Society of Charitable African Millionaires Organization

Body: Shalom Mr. Ayele:

I would like to learn more about your organziation and what it is you were attempting to achieve, and no longer are able to achieve.

It appears that your intents were pure in heart...what happened?

Someone can't decipher acronyms can they?

The last group of BBelievers come from a StumbleUpon thread about our story on the 6-fingered man who was banned from Guitar Hero tournaments. Plenty of BBelievers in the thread, but here's a few samples in case you don't want to click the link...

They get more girls and better jobs? That's just retarted.

I'm not sure where the satire begins. Is it the whole thing, or is the second half of the story satire, and the first half true?

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...

Also, Seth has also translated the entire Torah, line by line, into verse. You can read a sample on his new site

From: Seth

India, where some women are stuck:
If accused as a witch, it's bad luck.

  Men will cut off her hair,
  And then beat her right there,
If she weighs the same as a duck.

When you're sending a holiday gift
To give all your friends' spirits a lift,
  Be aware that your song,
  If interpreted wrong,
May leave some people feeling quite miffed.
