    US Govt allow Post Office to charge for email!

    Starting April 1st across the US, all email will need to have a stamp on it.

    You must purchase a digital stamp image and virtual tongue to lick it with. AOL users can have this done for them with the next AOL release, due out anytime now.

    Do not attempt to copy and reuse the stamps, as they have digital tracking codes that are read by the government's email routing machines.

    Penalties for reusing a digital stamp range from having your email posted on every FFA link site (first time offense) to making you spend time installing all the necessary Microsoft patches on government-owned computers (repeat offenders).

    I've heard that Bill Gates is giving people $50 for each reply to this thread. Something about a cookie recipie, I think.

    I thought if we forwarded this to our friends, they would donate money so that physically disabled children could buy Disneyland... Oh wait, maybe it is just to go to Disneyland.

    That's how it works in the UK, but you're paying for the phone time not the internet time.

    Dear Friend,

    I sorry that you have not reciepted a reward for helping out Prince Sahid von Sheik of the Nigerian Imperial Trone.

    Unfortunate Prince Sahid was capture by Nigeria's Repubican forces yesterday afternoon.

    He requests of kind sir that you wish to transfer a sum of $5000 to his bank account for his relese and he will transfer the heavenly sum of $1.5m into your account once he is bailed from prison.

    Thank you, and may the heavens bless your family and shower upon you all the graces of Allah, Buddha, God, and Shaka.

    Regards,
    Mark Steward,
    Embassy of the Republic of Nigeria.
