Norwegian Virus etc.

Actually, I heard a version of this about the Amish (forgive me!)
It went something like this:  "Hello, you have just contracted
the Amish virus.  We don't support the use of contemporary
machinery such as computer hardware and software, so please
follow our directions carefully:  delete all your software and
throw your computer and printer out the window.  Then,
produce handwritten copies of this message and send them
to all your acquaintances.

(please forgive... I admire the Amish--but this was hilarious)
