Aardvarks sing too? I thought they just farted.

That's the point about one type of code words. They're nonsensical and nobody would say it as part of a normal conversation. The response "the aardvark farts at midnight" might be uttered innocently by some passerby, who could be mistaken for the spymaster. You don't want the plans for the MK XXVIII Warhead to land in the wrong hands, do you?

I'm not sure what it means, but if you use babelfish.altavista.com to translate it from English to German, then from German to French, then from French into English, it comes out as:
quote:
back, ask hallo, can besides like me the knack massege the people, as they do not have any this one of it me which massege to send, request me to require thus more infromation on the thanks of place of installation.
Which is no more incomprehensible than the original.

I really don't understand why the e-mailer felt compelled to tell Kanye West that he had contacted WWE champion John Cena for any purpose.

"Hi Oprah? I just thought I'd tell you I sent an e-mail to Tom DeLay. Now give me money!"

But they "don't know."

And, you know, in terms of the e-mailer, that could refer to so many things. Probably all at once.

Comment: Barbara et all,
I recommend your site when email claims rec'd too outrageous,
your factual knowledge is always appreciated.

I close my urban legend email replys to "outrageous claims" with true
factoids. This makes for such great site searches. Have you ever thought
to reference TRUTH subject base?

Comment: That is because someone was added, into something that was going
for Glory, and someone couldnt face that loss, so they had to get the full
nelson info, on the details of what was being looked at, in other words a
BIG FAT BACK STABBING LIAR!

What could have been amazing works of Gods creative, turned into a
holloween trick or treat, and the story will never be none, as far to the
reaches , beyond imagination, whats left is a lie, a back door, a cheat,
once a cheat always a cheat, all due to closure.

Sad that we go threw life, with expectations, but blind to the abuses that
destroy something amazing. even more scary that we go threw life feeding
on the weak and ill, to lift ourselves up, so we can strut our egos, for
where its unecassary. Its to Bad that we go threw life, th8inking
something is forever only to find, its contingent upon cheating, lying and
stealing, when the beauty of SUNSHINE arises, and we let it slip away.

That is the reason, more Christian and believer Marriages fail! Fail! what
are we doing wrong, we stand between miracles becuase we want to posses,
or contain something that belongs to God! a Gift, freely given freely
give!

If I am going to get Married, I wont be going to a Spiritual advisor to
get the answers to the puzzle I will find it for myself, by working at it,
and not getting in by cheating my way.

Humour I have plenty, when the divorce papers are filed, I will rejoice
like I have never rejoiced in my entire life, I will sing sing to the
holiest of holy.

the difference between a Prophet and a cheat.

Figure it out.

What I love about this post is that the writer can spell something correctly exactly once. After that, any repeat must be spelled incorrectly. For example, we have "baby" at the start of the chant, but "babi" the next time. Similarly, we have "blue" the first time, but "blu" thereafter.

Obviously spelling consistency is not a strong point. But you must b-leve (which I understand is the grade of leve between an a-leve and a c-leve).

Yes, Sir! Right away, Sir! Blowing up kitchen, Sir!

Yup, there's an experiment that will benefit Mankind - let's set off explosives inside the stove and see what happens. Does this qualify for the next edition of the Darwin Awards?
