Isn't This Possibly The Most Ghastly Thing You'll See All Year


Not all my friends have been trained in the ways of 'not forwarding every piece of shit that lands in their email box' And it's just about liveable most people don't have my email address! However sometimes some real horrors land in the in box

Like this to the left. It also came with a pile of steaming prose

"GUARDIAN ANGEL

Forward this message the same day you received it.
It may sound ridiculous, but it is right on time[.] We believe that something is about to happen. Angels exist, only sometimes they haven't got wings and we call them friends; you are one of them[.] Something wonderful is about to happen to you and your friends.
Tomorrow at 11:14 AM somebody will address you and tell you something you have been waiting to hear
Please do not break this chain. Send it to at least 7 of your friends."

Yeah right, you won't be surprised that I haven't chosen to forward it on, instead I've chosen to mock it's awfulness. It's a pile of cack designed to appeal to the woolly thinkers and the careless forwarders and that is the most crap/sinister picture of angels I've seen in a while it looks like its a screen grab from an early 1980's electropop video done by a neofascist band. It's just wrong.

  1. you neve know, the email could be getting tracked by microsoft and anyone who sends it on will receive money. Or perhaps if you cough hard enough during a heart attack it will re-start your heart! Despise "chain" email... :-(

  3. those angels don't look very Guardian-ey, they kind of look like they want to do some old testamnet style smiting, it's the red eyes and big sword in particular.
    If they are genuine Guardian Angels they might want to think about a make over or something :)

  5. A close friend forwarded one of these to me - and they're one of the most intelligent people I've ever known! I'm trusting it was a joke on their part...
