the joy of unsolicited forwards
Somehow I ended up on the Human Shield mailing list.
This priceless forward came today:
OK, everybody. I've got a really good action item for you. Bush has
just called for a retaliatory boycott of French, Belgian and German
products. So I think you see what's coming...
Yes, a really stupid idea.
I want everybody to go out and buy really a lot of French wine, Belgian chocolates, German beer, etc., etc. Eat, drink, be merry, give the stuff away. Have fun.
Ok, I'll bring the Rolaids.
Send Bush a letter telling him what a good time you're having. Email all your friends and urge them to do the same.
Hey, why don't you go whole hog and write the letters in French?
Let's start a huge nationwide anti-boycott! While you're at it, send GW
some nice imported German pretzels!
Eat enough French and German food and we'll be able to use bloated bodies as weapons of mass destruction.
If you stick to only using French, German and Beligian products, you better turn off that computer. Probably take off your clothes while you're at it. Hell, why don't you just get on the Concorde and fly your way over to France where you can wine and dine with the rest of the white flag brigade? I'm sure Jacques will think this little bit of activism is hilarious. Especially the part about the pretzels. Birds of feather and all.
This is activism I can get behind!
Speaking of behinds, Owen...
