Chain Letter Hostage

You didnít send that
damn good luck letter ó the one that
says you must send out eleven copies within 96
hours or your life will turn to ****, that youíll need a
wheelbarrow to hold all the pieces of your shattered
health, finances, boyfriends, whatever you hold
dear. Your X-husband dies, your child
was crippled and corrupted by a
tropical spinal fungus only
seen before in the Congos. Youíve
never been there yet and youíll never go
anywhere again because your car keeps breaking
down at thousand dollars a slot. Your daughters black
mailing you with kinky hotel photos. You get audited and
come down with a canker sore and your X-husband returns
from the damn grave and eats saltines in your bed but canít
get the darn smelly thing up. He reaks of years of crusty
drears and your insurance wonít cover radiation but
your hairs falling out anyway and youíve gained
fifty pounds from prescribed meds and now
youíve become allergic to chocolate,
chew your nails to nubs and
started wetting the bed.
Your dead husband
hates your new boyfriends
aromatic style... and dies again. You
win the lottery, but somehow have lost the lotto
ticket. Youíve begun rummaging through the county dump
for it bit by bit. Other bag ladies start looking like your morning
reflection. And this stinking good luck letter was probably sent
by your best psycho friend. Someone close enough to you.
Someone who knows youíre both superstitious and a
damn procrastinating fool. You wonder if what
was play is now for real. You also figure
that anybody sending these damn letters to
anyone knows they donít work but they really hate
your guts and they know of your superstitious nature
hoping you will fall for it. So if you donít send this
good luck letter to 11 people in the next 96
hours you can be sure all of the above
will be occuring in your life in
short order, and too there
is no bright side
even if you
do.

Hilarious clip to come on!!! Someone clue me in - was the joke on me; &

Now Iím a spice-loving person,
and while I enjoy many a tease;
I fear I fail to share my husband's sense
of humor at personal times like these.
~ ~ ~
Spam like this doesn't taste at all;
failing even to make me sneeze.
If you're going to force-feed it to me, could
you put in some pepper please?
~ ~ ~
Better yet, some potent dripping hot
down-home jalapeno cheese?
Now youíve got me thinking of dinner,
and I canít even write poetries!!!!

Geez !
I recognized some of those names for sure !
LOL !
NO ... I don't feel threatened by them either.  But I figure that's why they
have the DELETE button ... LOL !

The LEAST the sender could do is to
COPY and PASTE only the ORIGINAL message.
I don't do crowds !
And that reminds me of Re: Fwd: fwd: Fwd:
Fwd: fwd: FWD: Fwd's ......
HELLO !  Another waste of airspace.

Great humor, Lucky !
