I must have a repressed Italian bread fetish. That'll be something new to tell my therapist come Thursday.

It's me, shaving. One of these days I'm going to remember that it works much better when I hold the shaver perpendicular to my face.

Snopes, are you making these up, or do people actually send you this garbage? At this point, somebody may well be sending bogus e-mails.

To answer the question about do real students use that sort of poor grammar and spelling: Yes, to an extent. I have received notes from friends using "WOOT" and "LOL".

On my honor, moonfall, as the snopes minion who screens the mail -- they are real.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but seeing as you are a newbie I feel compelled to point out that when snopes quotes an e-mail he has received, he precedes it with "Comment:".

Welcome to the board, and get thee to what may become the new initiation thread.

Before anyone questions the authenticity of this, let me testify that I know someone only slightly younger than me who still writes e-mails like this. Come to think of it, I may have pointed her to snopes once after she sent me a glurgy forward...uh oh.

I didn't word it well enough, sorry. What I meant is that the baby must be a self portrait of the identity behind that e-mail.

I frequent several message boards, and I can verify that some people really spell that badly. It's a bit hard for me to follow anything with poor spelling or grammar. Call me a purist if you want.

Ever notice how we always fall in love? We never climb gently in to love, or step lightly in to love. If love is such a good thing than why is it described as a fall.

Whoever wrote the last e-mail posted apparently didn't pay attention to the "false" labels on the stories he/she was complaining about. Had he/she been paying better attention, it would have been clear that as far as we know, no lobsters or "girbils" have been used in that um, manner.

I'm guessing the "par par par" is supposed to be laughter. Or maybe I've played too many J-RPG video games. Fu fu fu...

Okay, just to make it clear, there is a real world out there. No really, there is. I checked.

Sigh...Ok...first, I'm going to believe what you meant to say was "I am a great fan and for a while I stopped listening to her music."

Second, I have to say...do what? You're a "great fan" yet you "for a while stopped listening to her music"? What kind of "great fan" are you?!

Actually, he slipped on a piece of waxed paper and fell into the deep frying pan.... mmmmmm tasty!


And on further thought:

Doe boy..... sounds like a transgendered deer.

AFTER SPECTACULAR RISE, NOTED DOUGH BOY HAS FALLEN

Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh, 71, died Wednesday of a severe yeast infection, complicated by obesity, hot air retention and repeated pokes to the belly.

He was cremated, (of course), and his remains were sealed in a greased loaf pan shaped urn and buried Friday in the Manna Memorial Gardens, near Bakersfield, California. Dozens of celebrities attended his funeral, including his longtime friends, Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, Little Debbie, Sara Lee, and the Hostess Twinkies. The grave side was piled high with flours as his godmother, Aunt Jemima, delivered the eulogy. With her tears flowing like syrup, she said, "Pop N. never knew he was kneaded, but he always held a warm place in all our hearts. Who else could have spent his whole life naked, with the exception of wearing that cute little baker's hat, and still been so accepted by so many?"

Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model to millions. Doughboy is survived by his second wife, Play Dough. They have two children and one in the oven. The funeral was held at 350° for about twenty minutes.

Only the flesh eating ones. Especially the cave dwelling variety.

No one begged. How can you not know if you are, or aren't, on crack? Use too much and forget when you last had any?

Flesh eating, cave dwelling bunnies like crack addicts. I'd be careful if I were you. Don't go to sleep, and watch the skies.
