No, it's not safe. If the title is accurate, it is most likely glurge. Delete, and then repeat with future glurge. Always repeat.

Comment: I have been infected with something but I'm not sure how to
identify what it is or how to go about getting rid of it. It seems to be
trying to spread through my e-mail. I can receive messages but when I try
to send my computer seems to be sending multiple messages.

it, as I always do, and could not find it.
So, I'm sending it to you for verification.

Scary - I understand this person. Actually, I've gotten a couple of emails like this at my old Yahoo address. Freaked me out. They were listed as From: Nobody. Subject: None. Then the email was blank. Tried to get my friend to check up on the IP address, all he could tell was that it was from California.

Hey, aren't YOU in California, snopes??? Hmmm....

The first one is true, but the second one is very obviously false. I mean, come on! I've seen ducks do that to garden hoses before, but snorkle's just don't work that way!

Comment: What do you know about this picture?
I received it from an e-mail friend who likes to sent me lots of these
kind of things. I always tell her to check your site to verify some of
this stuff. Her last thing was the 'Robin Williams' thing.
I have the picture if you want to see it. It looks very real.
Thanx, and thanx for such a geat site.

Really? The fact that it started with "A priest, a rabbi, Michael Jackson, and Amber walk into a bar..." kind of threw me off.

I wish the politicians would address the issue of clonning. There are too many clonns running around in the open, as if being a clonn is something to be proud of, and that is just wrong.

What is next - clonn marriage?
