Is it just me

By .Martin. ·
but do poorly written chain letters annoy you.

today I got this one:

it is tara and john the directors of MSN, sorry for the interruption but
msn is closing down. this is because too many inconsiderate people are
taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for just one
person), we only have 578 names left. If you would like to close your
account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your
account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no
joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. WHO EVER
DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL COST
10.00 A MONTH TO USE. SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU
KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLAY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL.
GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR
ATTENTION. It's no joke if you don't believe me then go to the site
(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/118**19.stm ) and see for yourself.
Anyways once you've sent this message to at least 18 contacts, your msn dude
will become blue

1. (not shown) it is written in YELLOW with BLACK highlight! What is that?

2. poorly punctuated, if it really was the directors of MSN, wouldn't you hope they could write better than a 4 year old?

3. why is there a whole paragraph in capitals? why are they shouting?

4. It will cost 10.00 per month, 10 what? 10 American dollars, 10 Baht, 10 livers, 10 SOULS?

5. good they provided a link, but wait a minute, the article is from Febuary, 2001, has it really taken 7 years for this to get around?

6. the word dude, isn't there anymore educated word.

lastly if it WERE MSN messaging us, why would they use chain letters, they send out messages to people every week, why not just another like that!

that combined with a bad day made me wanna explode!!!

are there any chain letters that annoy you?

WTF is that about?

by jmgarvin In reply to Is it just me

Honestly, how does this even make sense? First, where is the signature? Second, why are there so many typos? Why would they use the word "dude" for avatar or icon (I'm not even sure what they are referring to).

What's really strange is that they are asking you to forward that to people in your contact list...what happens if they don't use MSN? AARRGGGG....

That email is full retard.

Most of them are the political ones that say "It's all because of the [insert name here] party!"

Although some of them are laughable in their naivet?.

Just got this one today.

At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ***.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the **** happened? Can you spell 'politicians!'

And I still have to 'press 1' for? English!?!?!?!?

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!! GO AHEAD - - - BE AN AMERICAN!!!!!!

It's at least humorous through the verse, but it falls apart in the conclusion. The USA has carried a national debt since 17**; the only time it even approached zero was during Andrew Jackson's presidency when it was only $18,000. Not only that, whoever put it together is apparently one of those id10ts who thinks he should get anything he wants out of government without paying for it.
