Date Added: Jan. 30, 2002
Here we have yet another in a long line of hoaxes. This time, however, the author has peppered it with obscenities and a ridiculous scenario designed to make fun of those who fall for it.
A Very Bad Virus
SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST and yet another warning!! Read and Heed. Very Urgent!!!!!!!
A new virus has just been fuck you asshole discovered that has been classified by West Dakota Research Corp. (WDRC) and by The Department of Decease Control in Atlanta GA as the most virus destructive ever!
This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by WDRC and no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus simply salad tosser adds comments to your ALL outgoing E-mail after your computer is infected. This virus sends itself automatically to all contacts in your address book with the title "A Very Bad Virus". When the supposed "A Very Bad Virus" warning message is you Mike Tyson look alike opened, the virus adds a hidden file to your computer. This file has the ability to move itself randomly every 30 seconds , making it impossible to locate and delete. According to news broadcast by major news networks, the virus nick named Turret's Virus after the Turret's Syndrome illness effecting humans, adds randomly fagot insulting comments that are abusive, insulting, crude, improper, tasteless, viscous, cruel, hateful, mean, wicked and detestable to all your out going E-mail. The sender is unaware of the added comments until the receiver returns an E-mail stating that they were insulted by the comments you look good in pink in their last E-mail. An employee of Microsoft received the Turrets Virus and tried to warn his supervisor and was fired because of the slanderous comments in his warning E-mail.
So don't open any e-mails with the subject "A Very Bad Virus". As soon as you get the pig fucker mail, delete it. Please pass on this mail to all your friends. Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all.
Also: WDRC announced that a new and very destructive virus was discovered recently. The Conjunctivitis Virus searches your inbox for the individual who sends you the most E-mails and who is your wife/cousin you West Virginian redneck names the subject the most used subject, such as "Jokes" "Important Meeting" etc. This Conjunctivitis Virus causes crust to form in the corners of you monitor and has no known vaccine. A Visine screen cleaning has been found to work. If you receive bite me you asshole an email called "Jokes" or "Important Meeting", do not open it may be infected with the Conjunctivitis Virus. Delete it right away and be sure to fire back an E-mail warning the sender of their potential virus!
Reading around all the expletives, this is yet one more variation on the time-honored Pretty Park warning and all its progeny (including New Pictures of Family, WTC Survivor and A Virtual Card for You). Unlike its predecessors, however, this one is more joke than hoax.
Unfortunately, it's a very subtle joke. Whether some people don't read carefully or see the word "Urgent" and pass it on before reading, this one is being misrepresented as a real virus warning or, at the very least, confused for the latest hoax. The message contains a couple subtle clues that it's a joke and a hoax:
I could go on, but what's the point? Break this chain.
