About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

OK, here is my response. Notice I haven't contacted them in the way they suggest. they'll get around to pushing me for that soon. Maybe we'll get to the point when they ask for money. (Oh, and by the way, the Fax number I sent in earlier is an actual number belonging to a friend of mine. Wanna bet he gets some interesting faxes?)

Dear Mr. Dumbass Clem,

It's very nice to hear from you. Since I'm from
Amerika I'm not sure how much four hundred and fifty
thousand British pounds weigh. Is it a lot? I mean
if I figure right in this country that would be 225
tons. But, 225 tons of what?

Also, could you tell me a little more about the 2006
BMW 5 Series car. What options are on it? Does it
have heated driver's seats? That would be very
important to me, because I have an acute case of
sub-clinical hemorrhoids. A warm seat is a must for
me, expecially here in the north where it is getting
pretty cold these days.

I'd like one of those Tom Tom's on it too.

Let me know what I have to do.

Your fiend,

Shitz A. McGuffney

Mike, that's hilarious. I get a ton of spam from those scammers and I've always wanted to play with them a little but never bothered.

Quite amusing, Mike. I have occasionally responded to some of these spam mails with scathing emails demanding that I never be contacted again, and threatening to have my attorney, Anne Thracks, serve them up.
