Don't worry BigH - I get some funny emails too, but some of it does work!

My last one gave a clue to the secret in the little brackets,  so, after eating only FIVE tins of SPAM, I looked around the garden and sure enough

-there was a rock measuring 9"

- AND it was extremely hard (it fell out of the vernier and landed on my foot)!

How do they know  {:-{ {:-{

I wrote to thank them but have not had a reply yet....

Just a thought ....if we all forward the details of the business deals that we get offered by email from John in Nigeria and Chen in the Shanghai bank to A Darling, along with the lottery win notifications, he can take up the offers and we will be a rich country again and none of us need ever pay any tax again.  ;)
I mean, I must have been offered at least 15M so far this year, but I can't really be bothered to collect it.

 :-))   I don't believe in those money scams Malcom, my wife and my children are always sending them to me.
  They say that if I give them all my details they will act as go-betweens, do you think they are genuine ????
       
Martin, I won't bother with that Nigeria money thing, since you put my photo on the last Wariwick show photos
   I've been inundated with requests asking if the clown can do kiddies shows..  I don't mind but they want me to pay THEM.

Harry, be very careful on your computer!  These are what is know as "Phishing" emails, and are usually sent out by families to find out where their father is  O0 :o  Don't be fooled by glib promises of "Father's Day" presents - you'll regret it in the long run  :-X

Da .... something or other

  I wish you had told me that before Danny, I have already arranged for my boat to be sunk in the middle of the lake and my kegs to
   be found on the launch ramp, meanwhile I've arranged to buy a house (Well a tent up a tree really) on a site for the M1694322...
  I shall turn up as soon as the pubs open and sell my story to the mail or some other comic for the price of a fag paper filled with the finest
  grass (from the queens lawn at buck house) and retire to the penthouse suite at Dartmoor HMP, where I shall be given my own TV, library, pool table and a man to wake me up in the morning with a cup of rosy.    Phoar''    Harry

I just remembered this....
http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=14104.msg135091#msg135091

Hilarious account from somebody on the Times who responded to one of the Nigerian scam emails pretending to be interested.
