The 5 best e-mail subject lines and addresses contest

By Lab309 ·
Tags: Off Topic
A not-so-technically-savvy friend of mine had her hotmail e-mail account suspended for some mysterious Microsoft Fog-Induced Security violation and asked for help getting it back. They had you answer several questions:
Birth date, month, day, year.....OK
Name of first pet question.....OK
Subject lines and addresses of the last five e-mails you received? HUH?
My freakin' BANK doesn't ask for that!
Well, as is suggested, she could call up friends and relatives and ask them the subject lines and addresses; call up each of the businesses that sent ads and ask whether or not their subject lines said "Huge Deals" or "Really Huge Deals...."; Or, considering the likelihood of anyone actually remembering their subject lines, why don't we just make some up.
Hence the contest.
You are invited to make up a suitable (hopefully funny) subject line and e-mail address. Examples:
"Guys Make More Passes at Girls with Small A**es"; dparker@weightloss.com
"Millions for You Just Send Me a Little of Your D'Oh"; hsimpson@nigeria.org
Things like that.
Enter as often as you can stand it. Entries will be judged upon originality, timeliness, glycemic index, and BMI.
Also whether they are as hilarious as Microsoft Hotmail's truly funny--if not frustrating--approach to e-mail security. The more people laughing at this, the better.

I have a habbit of calling them every few months because I can't remember the complicated username I have for their internet banking site (I rarely use it).
The really long list of security questions always include "What is your credit limit" and "What was the balance on your last statement?". Of course, the answers to these can only be found on the electronic statement which I can't log in to get...

That reminds me of a ISP here

To make things cheaper they send you a E Mail telling you how to setup your E Mail Account for new users.

I just asked them once how I was supposed to setup the E Mail Account so that I could collect the E Mail so I knew how to setup the E Mail Account for the new user.

The girl on the switch who I was speaking to said quite clearly and didn't comprehend the problem the Directions are in the E Mail we will send you.
