Comment: Dear Barbara,

You are my hero. I have become your disciple. Wherever falsehood raises
its ugly head, I draw the Sword of Truth from snopes and strike back.

You have empowered us against the facile false forward, the unholy
unchecked untruth, the loosely launched legends.

I am in awe of you and your work.

We should set this person to taking care of the stacks of idiotmail snopes gets. or invite her to the message board. she'd make a great addition.

If that's the case, I think the drawing from part could be a little more dicey, and I'm not sure the grear Bar-bara would like anyone else meesing with the great weapon of virtue.

Comment: Thank you for the Mr. Ed "Lost Legend". I have spent 20 minutes
in a place I haven't been since Grandpa explained how they found me in a
pumpkin patch instead of actually being born.

From the first, initial, tiny mental "huh?" to the mental screeching
banshee of a "BULL****!!!!!" all the way to the whimpering silent
"Everything I know is wrong", I was relieved beyond belief that I still
had the wits to click on the 'More Information' page. Had I not been able
to do that, I would, instead of writing you, been found here at my
computer, a slobbering, gibbering mass of tortured, twisted humanity,
unrepairable and needing many fresh towels.

What a rush! Cool! Thanks!

We're glad to have relieved you of a need for towels. You'll have to work on the remaining problems yourself.

That's pretty much how I felt when I first realized that Daisy Duke was wearing panty-hose, not sporting a natural tan. Ah, the blissful ignorance of youth and poor television reception...

I consider that day the last day of my childhood.

Where, oh where, was the comfort of snopes when I needed it?!
