This site came to me from my friend Adam Brotman. I actually went to this site yesterday afternoon. I don't think I've laughed this hard in some time. It's rare. And I think it's incredibly well done. It's basically a site where the author goes to craigslist and starts really funny email conversations with people. I've told about a dozen people about the site already....so I thought I'd share it with all of you.
Given the amount of feedback on the last email from my landlord re: the office barbeque. I thought you'd enjoy seeing this email which I received today. We had about 1 week of no hvac and a very warm (despite Seattle's current weather) almost hot office.
Tony Wright of Rescue Time and I had a major miscommunication over the past year. Tony used to come to the Seattle Open Coffee's regularly at Louisa's Cafe on Eastlake on Tuesdays at 8:30AM -- yes, the open coffee's are still going on. For about 6 months straight, we'd have coffee every Tuesday. We became quite friendly.
At an Open Coffee about a year and a half ago, Tony asked me to invest in RescueTime. I can't remember exactly why -- but I chose not to invest. Shortly thereafter, he stopped attending Open Coffee. At first, I didn't think anything of it -- I thought he was just busy. But as time wore on, I began to wonder if it was personal. I emailed him.
In April 09, I wrote Tony at his gmail address:
The only reason I'm making this effort is because I liked you and your sudden absence strikes me as odd. Perhaps I'm just misreading the whole thing ....just let me know.
I prefer to deal directly with disconnects and miscommunications among people....your lack of response is discouraging. I thought higher of you.
If I did do something wrong -- I'd like to apologize for it.
If you want to not respond, that's your prerogative.
My mom spams me on a regular basis. She doesn't know it -- but that's what she does. She's on all sorts of mailing lists -- inspirational, comedy, photos, and videos -- and she feels compelled to share it all. I love my mom but she hasn't quite figured out the email thing -- that said, this morning I actually clicked on one of the links she sends me -- and didn't get an adware ask nor a prediction for my astrological sign. I got this wedding video and it made my day. Looks like a really fun wedding. Thanks for sharing mom!
Pretty funny...read it all here Lundeby, known online as "Tyrone," allegedly had progressed into selling
his services as a threatmaker, charging schoolchildren from across the
country $5 apiece to place threatening, Internet-based phone calls that
would cause administrators to shut down their schools, Wired News
reports. "I heard the prank phone calls he made," his mother, Annette Lundeby, said in the Wired report. "They were really funny prank calls."

This interview made me so impressed with John Stewart. I was mildly impressed that Jim Cramer didn't get totally defensive and seemed to handle the interveiw better than most.
If you haven't seen the John Stewart v. Jim Cramer video -- it's a must see. Here's a little vintage Stewart here (the full episode -- must watch!! The first 5 to 7 minutes are a bit boring but it's worth waiting for the full interveiw ) here, and here -- it's so worth watching!!
One is a scum sucking bottom dweller and the other is a fish.
This was too funny to "passover".
An elderly man in Miami
calls his son in New York
and says, 'I hate to ruin
your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing.
'Pop, what are you talking about?' the son screams.
'We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,' the old man says.
'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you
call your sister in Chicago
and tell her,' and he hangs up.
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone, 'Like heck they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this.' She calls her father immediately and screams at the old man, 'You are NOT getting divorced! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we' ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?' and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 'Okay,' he says, 'They're coming for Passover and paying their own airfares.'
This site predatory lending association is worth checking out. You need to understand that it's a joke -- because you may go there and say WTF. If you like it -- please write it up....he's trying to get some blog buzz on the topic.
This is the brain child of Mike Mathieu of AllStar Directories fame. Nice job Mike!
