From: Louis Jones > I know this guy whose neighbor, a young man, was home recovering from > having been served a rat in his bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. So > anyway, one day he went to sleep and when he awoke he was in his > bathtub and it was full of ice and he was sore all over. When he got > out of the tub he realized that HIS KIDNEYS HAD BEEN STOLEN and he saw > a note on his mirror that said "Call 911!" But he was afraid to use > his phone because it was connected to his computer, and there was a > virus on his computer that would destroy his hard drive if he opened > an e-mail entitled "Join the crew!" > > He knew it wasn't a hoax because he himself was a computer programmer > who was working on software to save us from Armageddon when the year > 2000 rolls around. His program will prevent a global disaster in > which all the computers get together and distribute the $600 Neiman > Marcus cookie recipe under the leadership of Bill Gates. (It's true - > I read it all last week in a mass e-mail from BILL GATES HIMSELF, who > was also promising me a free Disneyworld vacation and $5,000 if I > would forward the e-mail to everyone I know.) > > The poor man then tried to call 911 from a pay phone to report his > missing kidneys, but reaching into the coin-return slot he got jabbed > with an HIV-infected needle around which was wrapped a note that > said, "Welcome to the world of AIDS." > > Luckily he was only a few blocks from the hospital - the one, actually, > where that little boy who is dying of cancer is, the one whose last > wish is for everyone in the world to send him an e-mail and the > American Cancer Society has agreed to pay him a nickel for every > e-mail he receives. I sent him two e-mails and one of them was a > bunch of x's and o's in the shape of an angel (if you get it and > forward it to twenty people you will have good luck, but if you > forward it to ten people you will only have ok luck, and if you send > it to less than ten people you will have BAD LUCK FOR SEVEN YEARS). > > So anyway the poor guy tried to drive himself to the hospital, but on > the way he noticed another car driving along without his lights on. > To be helpful, he flashed his lights at him and was promptly shot as > part of a gang initiation. > > And it's a little-known fact that the Y1K problem caused the Dark Ages.© 1999 Urbanmyths.com
