One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to Earth to check it out. So he called one of His angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time. When she returned, she told God, “Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are not.” He thought for a moment and said, “Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.”
So God called another angel and sent her to Earth for a time, too. When the angel returned she went to God and said, “Yes, the Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are being good.” God was not pleased. So He decided to E-mail the 5% that were good because He wanted to encourage them…. give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what that E-mail said……. ?
You didn’t get one either, huh?
(..when you receive Adult sites via spam in your email, you might try to reply them like this:..)
Thank you very much for the letter you sent informing me of your Adult Web site. My brothers and sisters weren’t too happy with your site’s contents.
I was able to find your home address, thanks to the new altar boy that just moved into town. We contacted your local parish and the local Reverend was shocked at the business you are running.
He told me that he will be sure to talk to the fellowship and see that you attend the next prayer meeting. He has reserved this Sunday night at 7 so that you can explain your business to the fellowship.
I have subscribed you to the E-PRAYER listserve group, which will bring you 200 holy e-mail messages everyday.
There is no need to thank me. The Lord works in wondrous way! Your sending that e-mail to me was the Lord telling me that you are calling for help.
And it goes on to say, “In a humbling reversal, AOL Time Warner Inc. is retreating from a top-level directive that required the divisions of the old Time Warner to convert to an e-mail system based on AOL software and run by America Online’s giant public server computers in Virginia.
“Among the problems cited: The e-mail software frequently crashed, staffers weren’t able to send messages with large attachments, they were often kicked offline without warning, and if they tried to send messages to large groups of users they were labeled as spammers and locked out of the system. Sometimes, e-mails were just plain lost in the AOL ether world and never found. And if there was an out-of-office reply function, most people couldn’t find it.”
My favorite quote in the article was, “When computers crashed in the Washington bureau of Time magazine due to the e-mail software, staffers sometimes sung out, “So easy to use, no wonder it’s number one!’
At one point yesterday, a complete stranger walked up to me and said, “Sir, if you don’t stop smiling like that, the top of your head will fall off because the corners of your mouth are about to meet at the back of your noggin’.”
