Thursday Thirteen - I want it and I want NOW

This week's Thursday Thirteen is dedicated to all those out there in blog land that like to forward those spam emails (you know the ones I am talking about). Thirteen reasons you should not forward spam.

#1 - I keep getting ripped off! Bill Gates, AOL and countless other still owe about a million dollars for forwarding their emails. I mean it is really hard work to forward these things and if they don't hurry up and pay me my money, I am going to have to get nasty and get me an attorney.

#2 - It clogs up my email. Now come on, if its funny or going to pay me money then by all means you can send it.

#3 - It can make your computer sick. Have you ever tried to give your computer its cough medicine? I mean it is worse than getting kids to take it. And don't even get me started on de-worming. But if those guys in #1 would hurry up and pay me my money, then I could at least afford a shot or a vaccine for my computer.

#4 - People don't take out the 1/2 mile of additional email addresses from where it has been forwarded half a million times. OK, Bill or AOL might need this information (but they ain't gonna pay) but I don't.

#5 - I get bamboozeled. I can't tell you how many times I have forwarded some little mantra or totem that will promise me years of good luck or a windfall of money and it's just not happening (didn't you read #1? - if I was gonna get money I would have it by now).

#6 - Where are my free food gift certificates (Applebee's, Olive Garden, etc.). I mean come on, if Bill & AOL aren't going to pay me then I need something to feed the kiddies.

#7 - I never knew that I had so many royal relatives in Nigeria. Wow - I am royalty. Sorry to hear that some long lost Uncle has died - but I didn't know him anyway - so just send me my money. A cashier's check will do, you don't need my account information.

#8 - Pre-approved home loans - WOW! Really? Where were you when I needed you? But then again if Bill & AOL would just get off their butts - I am mad now - hand me the yellow pages and a phone.....

#9 - Free Psychic Readings - hmmmm maybe she can tell me how much I am gonna win in my lawsuit against Bill and AOL hmmmm....

#10 - College Degrees - Ummm no thanks I already have one but do you think I can get one for the teenage daughter? That way she can just stop school now and start working with her Doctorate Degree in hand and make us some money (dialing the phone....Bill you are in trouble now...)

#11 - Hot Singles looking for love - ummmm NO! If I had the money I was promised they would be searching ME out (the attorney thinks so too.)

#12 - Ephedra, Viagra, Phentermine without a prescription. What?! You trying to tell me something??

#13 - Free computer, laptop, or cell phone - why?, so you can send me MORE emails from Bill & AOL? (the attorney says - I have a strong case all I have to do is send this out to 100 friends and I am golden).

Cheeky - who was singing "Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, lets get into physical....Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk" honor of getting up at 5 in the AM to work that bootay!
