Here's one from Yahoo! Groups. And yes, the title was "chain letter!"

quote:
DO NOT SEND THIS BACK TO THE PERSON THAT SENT YOU IT!!! [not a good
idea]
DO THIS ITS SOO FREAKY
here just do it
most people aren't sure of what they really want in life. I received
this letter from a friend on the computer, did what it told me to,
and within a week, everything I had wished came true!! Here's an
exact copy,
this really works!!!!
1. To yourself, say the name of the only guy or girl you wanna be
with 3 times!
2. Think of something you wanna accomplish within the next week and
say it to your self 6 times!!
3. If you had 1 wish what would it be? say it to yourself 9 times!!!
4. Think of something that you want to happen between you and that
1special person and say it to your self 12 times!!!
5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as you
scroll down focus and concentrate on it and think on nothing else
but that wish.
Now make one last & final wish about that one wish that you picked.
After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and
what you wished for will come true within in one week!
u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
crush!!!
Keep going down
Keep going
Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was your last chance.
Now pay very close attention this important message!
Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda
chain letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since
1864 and if you break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that
after hearing these stories.
First Example:
Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl, up till she got
this same chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid since
kindergarden. when she got this mail she didn't pay any attention to
it. She just thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her
dad got fired and her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have
sent the letter none of that would have happened and her mom would
be alive.
Second Example:
Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average nerd. Had glasses,
was short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51
people in the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since
3rd grade. The next day after sending the chain the girl confessed
her love for him ever since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the
courage to ask her out, and of course, she had been waiting to yes
to that for years. They grew up and
married each other to live happily forever.
Third Example:
Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll get ya hooked.
Listen to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just getting on AOL
to check his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that popular but not a
geek either. he was just normal. He saw he had mail from his friend.
It was this exact letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and he
knew what could happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled a
few friends from his buddy list and sent it along. The next day,
about that same time, he got a phone call. It said he had won the
lottery!
then his dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him
Nintendo64 and play station! His grandmother sent him a new
computer, and his best friend
gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and
Limp Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was
goin' wild! the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they
have been going out ever since.
Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i'd rather
be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but
thats only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to
go out withthat special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave
it. If you send this to-
1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love life..... forever!!!!!
10 people- your crush will say they like you as a friend......
ONLY!!!!!
15 people- your crush will say they like you
20 people- your crush will ask you out!
25 people- your crush will kiss you!!
30 people - Your crush will have sex with you
35 people or more- All of the above!!
Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have everything u wanted,
and more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any
friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go in
a chat room, pick some names and send away! but here's the
catch..... you only have 1 hour



--------------------
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Hi All:

Run, it's juvenile Frankenglurge [Big Grin] . Utterly hilarious!

You got that one right, snookems!

But that's before Al Gore invented the internet.

25 people- your crush will kiss you!!
30 people - Your crush will have sex with you
35 people or more- All of the above!!

But if I get all the above, I'll lose all my luck in my love life. If so, will she still say that she likes me? [lol]

But for sending more than 35 e-mails, shouldn't she just be interesting in rattling his bones? [Wink]

So if I spam some 35 random people I find in some chat room, it's a hot time in the old town tonight for Ieuan? [Big Grin] Woohoo!

Another example:

Take Kevin F. He had it all. But he ignored this chain letter to go out partying, and appear on TV. Next thing you know, his ride gets confiscated. His concerts get canceled. Then his mealticket--I mean wife--dumps him by text message on while he is on camera! He went from K-Fed to K-Fed-Ex in no time. Don't let this happen to you! Illiteracy and hangovers are no excuse!

Edited to fix two words (and make a waffle).

Wow! How did they know that Jordan Johnson was going to read the letter, send it along, and get a phone call? Spoooooky!

Abraham L broke this chain letter. His son Eddie died at age 4 from tuberculosis. Another son Willie died of typhoid. His wife slowly went insane. Finally, Mr L was shot and killed at age 56.

Let's say I send it to 10 friends (pretend I have that many). Even if 70% of them follow the directions, that means 3 friends of mine will suffer dire fates. If I don't send it, then only I will chance a dire fate. So by sending it, I say that I am more important than 3 of my friends? I think I'll not send it and spare them.

I thought this bit was hilarious! This is what is referred to as "post hoc" (I have learned something from my English class!). The fact that I recognized it boggled my mind enough that I could read the rest without the tears of laughter.

I like that a "kid" (in fact, he's probably under 16 if his dad bought him a bike and not a car) gets a phone call informing him he's one the lottery.
A.) In the US at least, you have to be 18 to play the lottery.
B.) When you win the lottery, I believe you have to notify them that you have the winning ticket, not the other way around (having only played scratch-offs, and never won more than a couple bucks, I'm not positive on this, but fairly certain).
C.) You can't win a lottery without entering.
