Re: OT I think-- thoroughly weird msg.

A day or so ago I got a couple of that sort of message, one from a Nigerain
and one from a South African - so I forwarded them to each other, advised
them they should marry each other, and informed them I was a Certified
Marriage Commiserant.

I was tempted to offer to read their futures by examining their intestines,
but I think they might've taken an unjustifiable fright at that, and as a
Certified Marriage Commiserant I can't go around terrifying my potential
customers, can I now?

It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it! ;^)
