|Nigel's response to a chain email|
There is a home for people who believe that propagating chain e-mails will somehow alter the infinitely complex machinations of fate. This home is 6' X 2' X 1' and made of wood. There is enough sadness in the world without people replicating this kind of cliched pseudo-philosophical drivel. No more need I wonder what happens to slogans deemed to saccharine for charity greetings cards. This stuff has the intellectual content of a cola ad. This e-mail made me want to torture small animals.
Screw your friendly intentions. Ethics is based on results. Circulating this crap is just plain evil. Sam, please forward a photo so I can have a voodoo doll made up. Chris, don't bother - I'll just use a potato.
National friendship week Nigel's comments in blue
Happy National Friendship Week. When will people learn never, NEVER to give the greetings card industry an opening?
Many people will walk in and out of your life. Only start to worry if you're one of them.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
Great minds discuss ideas;
He, who loses money, loses much;
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature. Or sometimes just accidents of over-stressed latex.
Learn from the mistakes of others. Failing that, just laugh until you cough up a lung.
Friends, you and me ....
Yesterday is history.
It's National Friendship Week.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER, YOU'RE REQUESTED TO SEND IT TO AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU. THIS WILL IMMEDIATELY LOSE YOU 10 FRIENDS, WHICH MAKES 10 LESS DIMWITS TO SEND YOU THIS KIND OF TRITE DRIVEL IN FUTURE. IF THIS DOESN'T WORK, SUGGEST YOU TRY THREATS OF REPRISALS.
Its not just chain emails that get Nigel going. Blinman.com
