Heh, I remember that list from when I was an AOL user (read: internet n00b). Back when people were just getting used to the concept of "electronic mail" I think I recieved that list and others like it upwards of 20 times each <IMG SRC="http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/cwm32.gif" border=0> from various relatives.

...that's not to say that they weren't funny . Just harkens back to a more naive time, back when the most well-known definition of spam was spiced ham with a gelatin coating in a can.

I think Ben's just a little hyper and sometimes tries too hard, but overall, he's funny

sorry bout bringing back this old topic (y am i saying sorry?!), i learnt 4 more:

- POLITICS: Left and right on opposite sides
- SP0RTS: Diego says "Football is like it is: if no1 wins, its a tie."

and these r jokes in the radio i just heard (when i dont play music while browsing through internet, i listen to the radio)
- Desperate citizen kidnaps himself, isnt able to pay the ransom and shoots him down.
- Englishman trying to hang himself in a tree. The rope he was using broke, so he sued the company saying that such fragile material could attampt against his life. The company had to pay the man $2000.

btw, i roflmao after reading natty's... again!
