Break the Chain Yanking the Chain Award
May 2000

We've seen all the messages that say that "This happened to a friend of a relative, so I know it's true." Well, this one combines all of them into one. Delving into virtually every hoax currently circulating, the anonymous author of this gem paints the picture of a very bad day!

Subject: I know this guy...

Dear Friends,

I know this guy whose neighbor, a young man, was home recovering from having been served a rat in his bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. So anyway, one day he went to sleep and when he awoke he was in his bathtub and it was full of ice and he was sore all over. When he got out of the tub he realized that HIS KIDNEYS HAD BEEN STOLEN and he saw a note on his Mirror that said "Call 911!" But he was afraid to use his phone because it was connected to his computer, and there was a virus on his computer that would destroy his hard drive if he opened an e-mail entitled "Join the crew!"

Now, this guy knew it wasn't a hoax because he himself was a computer programmer who was working on software to save us from Armageddon when the year 2000 rolls around. (By the way, it's a little known fact that the Y1K problem caused the Dark Ages!) His program will prevent a global disaster in which all the computers get together and distribute the $250.00 Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe under the leadership of Bill Gates. (It's true! I read it all last week in a mass e-mail from BILL GATES HIMSELF, who is also sending me a free Disney World vacation and $5,000 if I forward the e-mail to everyone I know!!! :)

Anyway, the poor man then tried to call 911 from a pay phone to report his missing kidneys, but reaching into the coin-return slot he got jabbed with an HIV-infected needle around which was wrapped a note that said, "Welcome to the world of AIDS."

Luckily he was only a few blocks from the hospital-the one where that little boy who is dying of cancer is, the one whose last wish is for everyone in the world to send him an e-mail and the American Cancer Society has agreed to pay him a nickel for every e-mail he receives.

I sent him two e-mails and one of them was a bunch of X's and O's in the shape of an angel (if you get it and forward it to 10 people, you will have good luck. But, send it to less than 10 people, and you will have BAD LUCK FOR SEVEN YEARS).

So anyway, the poor guy tried to drive himself to the hospital, but on the way he noticed another car driving along without its lights on. To be helpful, he flashed his lights at him and was promptly shot as part of a gang initiation.

So, forward this to all the friends who send you their junk mail and you will receive 4 green M&Ms.; If you don't, the owner of Procter and Gamble will report you to his Satanist friends and you will have more bad luck, your wife will develop breast cancer from using the antiperspirant which clogged the pores under her arms, and the US government will put a tax on your emails forever! - free web hosting.
