My conversation with i_heart_erie

This series of comments was to irresistible not to put into an article. This stems from a “news” piece I posted about Ohio legislators voting to change the name of Lake Erie to Lake Ohio. A reader named “i_heart_erie” was a bit taken aback by the story. The following is our exchange verbatim from the comments section.

i_heart_erie said...
First off, I know this is a bunch of crap! Lets really think this through... 1. Lake Erie is all that Erie has, don't take that away from us. If it wasn't for the lake, noone would know where the hell Erie was. B. What would the 4 Erie counties call themselves? Would they all change their names? Would there be an Ohio county in NY, PA, OH and MI? Now that doesn't make much sense... and III. Why would Ohio want to lay claim to a body of water that has given the major towns and cities that not only feed off of its water supply but take a refreshing dip in it during the hot, humid dog days of summer a 70% higher cancer rate than the rest of the nation. OK O-H-I-O, if you are stupid enough to consider spelling your state a great cheer for a god awful university, I guess you are stupid enough to believe this is ever going to happen!


Doug said...
Erie, PA is the armpit of Pennsylvania. If you guys didn't have that one gas station there, no one would even bother to stop.

So quit your bitching. You sound like some whiny sorority girl from Indiana University.


i_heart_erie said...

Erie is not an armpit, it is the 4th largest city in Pennsylvania. And you should know about armpits coming from Lancaster, OH.

Just for your information, I was not a sorority girl. But you do sound like one of those dip-shits who joined a frat just for those special circle jerk masturbation parties where you all are trying to jizz on the same piece of the house mom's homemade bread.


Doug said...

Being the 4th largest city in Pennslyvania is like being the fourth least retarded kid in school.

Hey, at least I can claim that I could go to a school within 100 miles of my hometown. I didn't need to take the greyhound bus 850 miles to find somewhere that would accept me.

And I would never call you house mom's homemade bread... those stories from your college past are safe with all 225 guys.


i_heart_erie said...
Look here buddy... I got accepted into 9 different colleges. I did not even apply to any Ohio schools because the education that you find there only rivals those retard junior colleges that you find next to big schools in other states.

Also, you might want to check your math because last time I drove it, IU was only 465 miles away from Erie. You might want to grab a calculator next time you are doing math... but wait thats right normal mathematical rules don't apply to you since you are from an area that contains so much incestually caused brain damage that the local schools had to change the text books so that 2+2 can actually equal 6.

I will take credit for the 225 guys only if you take the credit for the 657 men putting their wangs in your poopshoot so violently that you left college with an outstretched asshole and huge, saggy, wrinkled balls (that one is for you Juan)!


Doug said...
Erie, you turd pile vaginal cramp. The reason it was 850 miles for you is that you would get two-thirds way there and remember that you forgot to fill up with gas and so you would drive back home to get gas.

And so what if I take it in the ass? It kept you mom employed for the first 14 years of her life, don't mock it.

And when you say accepted into nine schools, that's because you kept looping around the board in the game of LIFE.

So fill that fucking 6 seater plastic car with the pink and blue pegs you stretched out vagina, food stamp spending biatch... cause it only costs an extra $20 to get a conveyor belt installed in your womb, just like every other ten cent whore in Erie.

The Perfect Museum Exhibit

In a recent survey, we asked a bunch of people what they thought archeology was. They said dinosaurs. So from our vast experience of people and what people like, we designed the perfect science museum exhibit based on what people like. And people like the following:
Guns
Dinosaurs
Pyramids
The Fundamentalist belief that dinosaurs and man lived together.
Here is a rendering of the exhibit:

Anne's Plant

Here is Anne's plant:


While she was here, it was small and well cared for. Now Anne has been gone from work for seven long years and the plant has been abused, forgotten and rarely watered... and it has flourished.

I'm not sure what this means, but it gives me hope for the people that are beat down by life and are somehow able to thrive. But it also depresses me thinking that you can love something too much. Luckily, I don't have that problem, except with myself.

Ask HolyJuan: Snoring and Vaginalstreptacucumberus

Dear HolyJuan

Since we have now moved beyond the topic of food to the topic of getting laid, what to do about snoring?! My partner snores. He says that I snore too, but you know that cannot possibly be true because I am a petite delicate flower. And flowers do not snore.

I need your help.

Thanks!

~Marcie
dogsdontpurr.com



Dear ~Marcie,

Hmmmm. This is very interesting. Mainly because I, too, am aware that women do not snore. They don’t poop either, but this has nothing to do with that or delicate flowers. I am afraid this might be Vaginalstreptacucumberus. Vaginalstreptacucumberus’ symptoms include a loud snoring sound with an occasional light, almost fruity discharge. When you wake up in the morning, are you slightly sore with the feeling that you have been in a state of rest for 4 – 8 hours? After you brushing your teeth, do you feel the urge to look at your teeth in the mirror?

I think we have found our culprit.

Vaginalstreptacucumberus is caused when a woman inserts 8 – 10 medium sized cucumbers into her most womanly hole. This usually happens after a night of drinking so you might not remember. Check your receipts for a late night stop at the grocery store. If you have an Asian guy who sells fruits and vegetables near your apartment, check to see if he has trouble looking you in the eye. If so, have him stand on a box and try again.

After about a week of Vaginalstreptacucumberus, the cucumbers begin to ferment. This cucumberation usually last three to five days with the occasional expulsion of gas which causes the snoring sound.

By this time, it’s probably too late. The cucumbers have dissolved into your body and all that is left is the skins and some seeds. These will bond to the sides of you woman cave and become as curtains to the eggs that pass by.

In about a week, you’ll burp and a mouthful of seeds will come out. Don’t be embarrassed. Just spit them out into your hand, pocket them and move on. Explain to your co-workers that you had a cucumber sandwich for lunch and quickly make your way to a near-by plot of dirt. Bury the seeds and pee on the spot. Move on and do not look back.

Otherwise, you’ll be fine.

Oh, and your partner’s snoring? Analstreptazucchinius. Tell him to start looking for seeds.

HolyJuan’s Predictions for 2008

OK, so none of my predictions for 2007 came true except for the “3. Bird Flu will not have an effect on the world’s population… this year,” prediction.

Here is my list of predictions for 2008 and I predict all of them will maybe come true.

1. The world will NOT end on 06/07/08. Unless you count my soon to be cousin-in-law, then maybe you have an argument.

2. Home Depot will change the spelling of its name to Home DeePo so that people start pronouncing it correctly.

3. I will not get caught for cheating on my taxes.

4. Due to some crazy political thing and some weird labor thing and an awful bug infestation thing and a mule slaughter thing, here will be a coffee shortage of epic proportions. Tea people will point and laugh until the tea shortage kicks in.

5. The US Mint will cease penny production. The New(est) Dollar coin will look and feel like 100 pennies taped together.

6. Calculator watches will come back in style.

7. 50% of the US population is going to be upset about the election results. 100% of Ron Paul supporters are going to be upset about the election results.

8. Shit tornados. Everywhere.

9. It will rain on September 26th in Lancaster, OH.

10. Harrison Ford will go into a sex induced coma. He will only awaken when George Lucas swears to God that he will allow someone else to write and direct the final Star Wars trilogy.

Giant Chicken or Taloned Beast Footprints on Mars


I'm not sure why everyone is so excited about the Bigfoot on Mars when in the same photo there are clear and undeniable chicken or "taloned beast" prints on the ground. NASA is slacking on the Photoshopping of their photos to cover up life on Mars.

I love it

Rich Silverstein of the celebrated advertising firm of Goodby and Silverstein may take the cake for the most audacious effort to win over a potential client when he pitched Isuzu Motors. Silverstein printed up flyers and had them placed in the windshields of Isuzu all over San Francisco, offering to pay $50 to anyone who parked his or her car within a two block radius of the advertising office at the foot of Telegraph Hill. Who could resist? The visiting Isuzu executives were amazed to enter a neighborhood that looked like a giant Isuzu dealership and Silverstein got the account.

Jung Personality Test Results - AHOL

I took a Jung Typology “personality test” and as it turns out they sum your life up in four letters. Here’s mine:

AHOL - "Egotistical Bastard". Extroverted, self-intellectual with a preference for telling others what their opinion is. A self loving hater and a destroyer of relationships. Fortunately, they only encompass only 0.02% of total population.

To outsiders, AHOLs may appear to project an aura of "egotistical bastardness", of complete self-confidence. This incredibly over the top self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for complicated arrogance by idiots, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most AHOLs start building right after the loss of virginity. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and AHOLs can have several (they know everything you do not)-- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, which they can’t because you are a complete mess. AHOLs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know, which is nothing.

AHOLs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest as long as they get something out of it. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is other people holding them back. You, especially.

AHOLs are known as the "Mind Fuck" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of cock blockedness and ruthless despair. Anyone considered to be "slacking," including superiors, will lose their respect -- and will generally be made aware of this though a verbal beat down; AHOLs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. In other words, you are dumb and you should get the fuck out of his way.

Probably the strongest AHOL assets in the interpersonal area are their intuitive abilities and their willingness to make others feel like complete idiots. This ability can then be honed and directed by consistent, repeated verbal taunts, sketches of private parts and e-mails of a highly improper nature.

Brandon is back from his eight week internship in Lagula, Uganda and the first thing he did (right after getting the twenty or so Bot Flies removed from his flesh) was to get his site Contemporary Insanity back up and running.

I highly suggest you go check it out. (And look up Bot Fly while you are at it so you can get COMPLETELY grossed out.)

If you remember, Contemporary Insanity was the first site to have full video of Jon Stewart's CNN Crossfire Appearance and will be the first site to have coverage of the 2010 Psychic and Mindreaders Convention building collapse.

Ask HolyJuan: Movie Food

Dear Holy Juan~

Since we have lately been on the topic of food, I am curious as to which food is the best to purchase at movie theatres. They have Dots, they have Junior Mints, they have Red Vines, and a plethora of other odd food items. My closest friend tells me that Junior Mints are popular because people want to have fresh breath after the movie so they can get laid.

I eagerly await your wisdom on this topic.

~Marcie
dogsdontpurr.com



Dear ~Marcie,

The correct answer is Swedish Fish.



And you do not need fresh breath if you are getting a blow job (the sex act of choice for the movie theatre) or if you are giving one, mints make for a “OH MY GOD MY DICK IS BURNING!!” which when uttered in the theatre, sometimes causes a fuss.

I hope this helps!

Your friend,

HolyJuan

Ask HolyJuan: Buttered Bun Etiquette

Dear Holy Juan~

Clearly you are the master of the answers. But this one might be kind of tricky, since I don't know if you cook. But my question is this: when you make hamburgers, do you toast and butter the bun, just toast the bun (no butter), or do you just use a raw bun out of the bag? What is the proper hamburger bun etiquette?

I eagerly await your answer.

Thanks!
~Marcie



Dear ~Marcie,

Thank you very much for the question… and while you are at it why don’t you STICK A KNIFE OF PROCESSED CARBOHYDRATES INTO MY HEART!!!!

Do I cook? No. I do not because I am on a complete raw diet. Raw vegetables. Raw fruit. Raw meat. All meals, all the time.

Buns… ha! I call them processed wheat whore pucks.
Butter… ha! I call it raped cow feltching.
Hamburger… ha! You might as well be sucking the decayed meat off a three day old cadaver.

You “Americans” have no “idea” what “real” “food” is.

If you want a hamburger with a buttered bun, here’s what I suggest you do. Find a field where are female cow is grazing on wheat. Pluck some wheat from Mother Earth. Stealthily now… pinch the cow behind her left rear leg at the knee… this will calm her. Now, wrap the wheat around her bulging udder, overlapping the stalk and chaff. Steady now… bite her udder through the wheat. The natural desensitizing nature of the wheat and the pressure at the knee will keep her from feeling the flesh torn from her udder. I suggest 3 -4 chomps.

Now, run!!

That chewing action in your mouth full of wheat, meat and milk along with the jostling as you run from the braying cow will cause the milk to separate into curds and whey. Use your tongue to separate the two. That is your butter. That is your hamburger. That is your bread.

And yes, you are welcome.

How to ruin your life

So, you've decided to ruin your life? Great! Most of the time, people don’t actually get the chance to plan to ruin their lives; it just starts to happen and then snowballs. If you are making a conscious decision to do so, here’s how:

Step one: Keep people with video cameras around you at all times
When you are constantly recorded, you will eventually say something, do something or do someone for which everyone will condemn you. You’ll be singing a rap song, but the only recognizable part will be the N-word. You’ll accidentally kick an empty bag of White Castle boxes from your car and not pick them up. You’ll pick your nose or scratch your ass or scratch your nose and pick your ass. All this will be caught on tape and edited down for consumption on You Tube. Pretty soon you will have an internet nickname and nicknames are for life. And when people you don’t know have a nickname for you, you are screwed.

Step two: Drink
Drink. Drink a lot. Life is better when you are drunk. People are better looking. You are funnier. You know martial arts. You have more personality. And with one eye covered, you drive just as well as anyone else. When you get pulled over, tell the cop a joke and make sure you throw up on the hood of his car in view of the dash cam.

Step three: Run for office
Run for any office. Senator. Mayor. School board.

If you have anything in your closet, your opponent will find out about it and you can watch it in a commercial. Usually with the word WRONG or TAX or LIBERAL used twice in the same sentence.

“Doug. He’s wrong for sleeping with a three legged dog and he’s wrong for Franklin County Commissioner.”

Step four: Open a Facebook account with your real name
Do you like people? I do! It seems that there are a lot of them on Facebook. Most of them are completely f’d up. Using your real name allows people to match a name to a face and an address. 99 out of 100 times, your “friends” will just circle your place in their 89 Honda Civic because they have no social skills. But you have over 100 friends, now don’t you? Duct Tape: the official tape of Facebook.

Step five: Take a job for the money and not because you enjoy it
I’m in the process of this. See, I have a shitty job where I don’t make much money. I figure I should get a SHITTIER job that pays more money. Then you start to buy more expensive things and are stuck in a job you hate that stresses you out.

Step six: Solicit for sex on Craig's List
Craig's List math goes a little like this:

114 lbs = 162 lbs
single = married
social drinker = drunk
smokes = smokes
32 = 49
16 = a cop

Please remember that if you are a pedophile and you used the internet to set up a meeting with a youngin at a McDonalds, try and have the most original stuff in your car so the cops can report it to the local news after they arrest you. Don’t be like the other dopes that have wine coolers and condoms. Have 1,200 Twizzlers, a case of red pop and 8 tubes of airplane glue. Be creative!

Step seven: Start playing World of Warcraft

Why ruin just part of your life some of the time when you can ruin all of your life all of the time?

It’s not cool anymore to roll dice, wear a hooded robe and collect metal figurines. The new way to completely ruin your life is to do so as an Orc Shaman. Nothing says downward spiral more completely than “I was saving gold for a Bad Mojo Mask, but now with the new patch, I’m thinking about buying a crossover Epic Mount.”

And no one has ever had a job interview question concerning WoW. Never.

/gquit

Step eight: Make fun of people who play World of Warcraft
Once you start poking fun at the players of WoW, you are going to find yourself in a world of hurt. They know computers. They know your IP address. If you are on Facebook, they probably know your real name. They will track you down and kill you.

You are fucked. Buy a typewriter. And some stamps.

Step nine: Get married
Obvious.

Step ten: Start a blog
A blog is worthless. No one wants to read what you have to say or what your kid did with her oatmeal or how you hate your job. BORING!

Pretty soon you will run out of things to say and you will start to reveal secrets about yourself.

Next thing you know you will start to make up cartoons to fill space and top ten lists. You will lose all credibility and self respect. Then you will probably enter the porn world (which would be step eleven, except that I’m feeling depressed.)

So, good luck with ruining your life. With the proper motivation, it should only take you 3 -4 four weeks. After you lose your license for DUI, you’ll have lots of free time to update your Facebook account and to play World of Warcraft where you’ll meet your spouse and write a blog about it.

Note to self: buy Twizzlers.

The Church of Scientology Sued for Copyright Infringement

LOS ANGELES- By now, you probably have seen the slightly creepy, nine minute video of Tom Cruise discussing his infinite love of the Church of Scientology with the theme from Mission: Impossible looping every eight seconds in the background. As the video spread across the internet, the distraught Church of Scientology sent out several cease and desist letters claiming copyright infringement. A day after its release, it was taken down from YouTube and several other sites also stopped hosting the video. The litigious religious cult almost was able to cull the hype.

Apparently this has backfired. Not only has the mainstream media picked up the story and shown the video in its own endless loop, but Danny Elfman, who composed the music to Mission: Impossible, is also claiming copyright infringement for his music being used without his permission. That horrible, looping in the background of the video is copyrighted and Mr. Elfman has stated through his lawyer that permission to use the music was never granted. Mr. Elfman’s lawyer filed suit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court this afternoon.

The Church of Scientology has not commented on the lawsuit. Danny Elfman's only comment was that he is in no way shape or form related to Jenna Elfman and requested that the media and blogosphere to please stop asking.

Ask HolyJuan: My arm falls asleep at night

Dear HolyJuan,

I have a serious issue with my arm falling asleep during the middle of the night. I don't know how I eventually end up lying on my arm (I presume this is what's causing it), but when it does happen, I have to beat my arm against the wall to try and get the blood flowing. Needless to say, my neighbors do not appreciate this at 4am.

What can I do? Please help me HolyJuan!

-Ralph

Dear Ralph,

I do not see this as a problem more than I see it as an opportunity. When you find yourself waking up with a numb arm, you are in optimal condition for giving yourself a masturbatory, ethereal hand job. Jerking off is a lot better when it feels like someone else is doing it to you. If you do not have a someone else, but hate that self loathing feeling, I always suggesting tying a sock tightly around your wrist to cut off circulation and feeling. I usually wrap my hand around a lubed up 8" portion of kielbasa before wrapping the sock around the wrist and hand. When fully numb, I pull out the kielbasa and I have the perfect hand formation for self pleasure frozen in place. The numb hand feels like someone else's hand yanking on my man meat.

I will caution you not to go "Michael Hutchence" and fall asleep with your hand still tightly wrapped unless you are into a next morning, gangrene masturbatory experience.

But in your case my friend, all this is unnecessary. If you wake up and your arm is asleep, take advantage of a self love situation! (Though for added pleasure, keep the lubed up kielbasa handy.)

If you have sworn off such things like masturbation, as my good friend 2Sack has, then you are out of luck. But if you are afraid of waking your neighbors, kill them while they sleep with your numb, club arm, thus reducing the chances that they will be awakened during future episodes. Leave the lubed kielbasa in their blood stained bed to throw off the cops and to allow the local media to give you a cool serial killer name.

Best of luck friend,

HolyJuan

Ask HolyJuan: Repeat last weeks answer and 1 Million Dollars

Dear Holy Juan...
Marcie’s question has prompted one of my own. I thought you were only joking about answering life altering questions. Ok..Here goes...
How do I drink on the job and my employees be none the wiser.
also how do I make a million dollars this year...and yes, these questions can be intertwined.

Sweet Cinnamon from Millersport who lies on Myspace and says she lives in Grove City.


Dear Sweet Cinnamon,
You crazy, f’ing loon! The first part of your question was answered in my previous “Ask HolyJuan” segment! You even mention reading it in your letter. Do you want me to say the exact same thing again? Drinking-at-work technology has not changed in the past week. Here is the link to the last Ask HolyJuan. http://www.holyjuan.com/2008/01/ask-holyjuan-drinking-at-work.html When you see Marcie’s name, say yours instead. TaDa!

As for the second half of your question, here’s how you make a million dollars. Keep this one to yourself: Buy a two million dollar house. Sell it for half price.

And I am not intertwining, goddamnit.

How they tow cars in Paris

When John and I were in Paris, we saw this:

The "tow truck" came along, the driver opened the illegally parked car with a Slim Jim, rolled down both windows, ran a chain through, hooked it to the crane, and then set the smaller car on top the other two he had on the flatbed.

*Figures sold separately



For $3,200 with $650 shipping, you'd think they could throw in a Han Solo or even a Storm Trooper. How 'bout a freakin Jawa?

Mr. Allen,

To not believe the money amount of 47 million! That is a lot of money.

The bank is sent me a form to fill out. Can you help me to fill the spaces?

How is weather is your country? We have snow and ice today. I can see frost on the window from bed. I sad I can not play in the snow.

When will you be in Ohio to visit me? I could use a visit.

Handsy
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dearest Friend,

Thanks for your mail. I want to advice that you should take this business just as your own personal business because this is all I have depended on since all my service in this bank. Again, you should note that the bank might be carrying its private or personnal investigations by using the International investigative section which is a sub-section of the security department of the bank and as such any mail or any fax that you might receive from any individual relating transaction of this nature please and please, DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY WITHOUT FIRST CONTACTING ME, this is to avoide making mistakes because the security department of the bank is at alert. Pls do let me know immediately if your account can carry this amount without any problems?. Yes it is exactly $47Million. I shall be making my visit to ohio by the 2nd week of january 2008. The weather here is kind of normal, in the sense it is not as hot as it use to be. A little bit warm during the day while cold in the night. I think using a visit in the letter of invitation is very much ok by me.

Again my dear, I want you to know that once this funds is been transferred to your bank account I and my family shall be coming to meet with you in your country but I will first be visiting you alone, afterwards I shall go back to pick my family alongside with me once after we finalise the sharing of the money according to our agreed percentage terms. I have not even disclosed this matter to my wife. I intend to keep it secret until we finalise it, then it would be a surprise package to her and my children. Please my dear, I will want you to send a letter of invitation to me before this week ends so that I can quickly apply for my visa, because there is no much time left. I will take my leave immediately the money is been wired to your account. Since I am in the bank I will know when the money is transferred and I will resign my appointment immediately, and take off. I have already written my resignation letter, waiting only to submit it. I have already told the manager that I may be resigning my appointment very soon and he wanted to know why and I told him it is a personal family problems that prompted my resignation. After all my years of pain and sleepless nights, thinking on how best to carry out this task and now it is about becoming a success. You will never know how excited I am until we meet face to face.

Thanks and remain blessed my brother as I wait for your response urgently.

Mr. Allen,

It has being sent! I had my caretakr print the sheet. Hours it took me to fill it out as my hand is not steady.

I faxed it to the bank faxing machine.

The fax number on the sheet was not working so my caretaker was able to look up the bank on the internet and got a differnt number of faxing. 226 50308874 is what he said. I got a confirmation.

I will let you know as soon as the bank contancts me.

I cannot meet you at the airport so I will hoping that you can call me once you arrive in Ohio. Ask the front desk for my name!

Handsy
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
{He’s pissed.}

Dear Friend,

In this very deal, you do not have to do things without my knowledge. If we must excute this deal together, then do exactly that which I asked you to, so as to avoid mistakes ok. Now send the document to the bank by email attachment. You should understand that this country is a french country and the department handling this matter is the foriegn remittance department of the bank. It is not the affairs of the entire bank, there is a particular department responsible for things of this nature.

As you may understand I am working with one of the bank's branch and not the headquater office. This very transaction is been masterminded by the same branch because that is where the late depositor made the deposit of his funds. My dear pls I plead with you not to contradict matters by doing things your own way. I contacted you for this deal and for that before anything do let me know.

Lastly go ahead and resend the answers by email attachment ok. I will be waiting to receive from you.

Yours Mr. Koffi Allen

Dearest Friend,

Thanks so much for your mail and thanks for sending across to me the bank's mail as well. Well I have heard what you said and that is why I have quickly auction out my car in other to raise the $2000 you asked me to provide. I have already sent my mother inlaw in the person of Mrs. Reine Atam to the bank with the $2000 and she called me 5 minutes ago that she has made this payment to the bank. Now after sending the balance of $5000 to the bank write to them to confirm to them that you are the one that sent your partner here in Burkina Faso in the person of Mrs Reine Atam with the $2000 to them. I told the woman to tell the bank that you are the one that sent her with the money, while I asked her to tell the bank that you will be paying the balance fews hrs later.

My dear you go ahead and send the balance to the bank immediately so that the bank will receive the full payment today. As you know tomorrow will be public holiday here. Do this now and get me informed. Pls I want to let you know that you should not under any circumstances tell the western union argent why you are sending the money. If you were asked for what purpose you are sending the money, tell them that you are sending the money to your cousin in Burkina Faso. The reason is because I do not want any one both here or over there to know anything related this very deal. Pls try to protect my interest as you can see everything is fast coming to a successful end. Therefore do not under any circumstances disclose the secret of this very deal to any one no matter what, until we archieve our aim. Am still working in the bank remember.

I saw your photo. It seems you had been sick before. Am sorry for that. I guess you are ok now. I hope to meet you sound and hearthy on my arrival soonest.

I am attaching my photo and that of my family as well.

Thanks and remain blessed as we hope to celebrate our victory in couple of days.

{I really hate to disappoint my faithful readers, but this scam needed to come to a close. So sadly, this is a letter to Mr. Allen from Handsy's attorney, Dee Sknuts.


Dear Mr. Allen,

My name is Ms. Sknuts and I represent Mr. Handsy Galore.

It is with the saddest of news that I must tell you that Handsy Galore died on Monday December 31st of 2007. He slipped on a bed pan and received what the doctors call a triple concussion. They tried everything to save his life, including a taint transplant, but alas... he is dead.

As the executor of his will, I am put with the task of working through his finances. He was in the process of completing a transaction for you, but because he did not make it to the bank in time, I am unable to continue the process and must follow the rule of law.

I have attached the headline from the local newspaper. Handsy was a hero and we will all miss him. We are glad he had such a good friend in you.

Thank you for your time and best of luck.

Dearest Brother,

How are you today?. Honestly I had been seriously disturbed because today is friday and yet I never heard from you. What is going on. I mean what is delaying this payment. You know I have paid 2000dollars already and you should not in any wise keep the bank waiting for the balance. The bank has been assured that the balance would be provided by you at the same time otherwise the bank would not have collected the 2000dollars from my mother inlaw. They do not accept part payment on account re-activation. They accepted this because Mrs Reine Atam assured them that the balance will be sent to them at the same time. Why are you keeping this delays. What is happening? Am confused for your silence. Pls do not let the bank wait for you any further because it will not be healthy enough. If you had been paid the balance of the 5000dollars before now, then we should have been expecting the arrival of this funds into your bank account by now. My dear I am having sleepless nights over this matter and I really needs you to act now, since we have no time to waste further. I should have applied for my visa by now but I cant do this until this funds is been transferred to your bank account. I have already written my resignation letter but I cant submit it either until this funds is been wired into your bank account. I hope you understand the state I am at the present.

Thanks for your understanding as I expect goodnews immediately.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Dee Sknuts and I am a lawyer in the United States of America. My client, Handsy Galore, recently passed away and is unable to complete this transaction. I am handling his accounts and transactions.

There is a second party, of which I cannot name due to client privilege, who was interested in assisting with this transaction completion. Because this person was a friend of Mr. Handsy Galore, I would be interested in assisting them with the collection of the monies due.

Is there a writ of corpus or style of vag that could be accomplished so that this second party could collect the funds due to Mr. Handsy? I am capable of releasing Mr. Handsy's funds to assist the unnamed party as long as this second person can rename nameless.

Please forward any other e-mails to my work address at xxxx@gmail.com as this address will be deleted soon. If you can e-mail me a letter which states that Mr. Handsy's "habeus corpus" can be forwarded, then I can assist in completing this transaction.

IF YOU KNOW OF THE SECOND PARTY, DO NOT CONTACT THEM AS THIS WILL BE AGAINST MY PERSONAL CODE OF LIABILITY.

I will tell you this. This money was due to Mr. Handsy and Mr. Handsy alone and it seems unlawful that you were attempting to take a cut of this.

You have proven your faith by putting down $2,000 dollars of your own money. In that, my law firm is willing to pay you back the $2,000 as well as a $1,000 "finders fee."

We cannot send a check, but we can do a wire transfer. Please forward your information to xxx@gmail.com and we will reimburse you for your troubles.

Attention Mr. Koffi Allen,

We cannot not do a money order. We can only do a wire transfer.

We find it odd that you would give up $2,000.00 so easily. Are you so rich that you do not need the money? Please explain yourself.

We are still waiting for some paperwork to be processed to access the 14 million dollars you so kindly found for Mr. Galore. We would like to reward you, but if you are not interested in the money, we will not pursue to get it to you via wire transfer. If you are under scrutiny we can forward the money to another bank account under a different name.

I am glad to see that this is going to be taken care of. Anyone who would cheat and steal must go to jail, don't you agree.

In other news, Mr. Galore's family is NOT interested in attempting to retrieve the funds which are due to Mr. Handsy Galore. I tried to speak to them about coming up with the $5000 dollars, but they are too interested in splitting up his remaining funds.

It's too bad we could not work something out. As his lawyer, it would not be legal for me to take over the account. Unless you are willing to keep this and the paperwork private, we sadly must end this discussion.

Ask HolyJuan: Drinking at Work

Well, well, well… a reader has taken up my Ask HolyJuan challenge and I received the following e-mail from her:

Hi Holy Juan~

Since you were asking for questions, perhaps you can provide me with answers. I noticed you were good at providing advice on masking things...such as gayness....so I figured you would probably have expert advice for my question as well. What I really want to know is, how can I drink on the job without my boss knowing that I am drinking on the job?

I eagerly wait your advice.

~Marcie
dogsdontpurr.com

PS....No....I don't have a problem! I can quit anytime. Really. (**hiccup!**)


Well ~Marcie, you have come to the right place. If there is one thing I know about, it’s drinking. And if there is one place I do it all the time, it’s at work. Let me share my secrets with you.

Most my co-workers and I drink 8 to 25 cups of coffee a day. Coffee has caffeine in it, which is a pretend drug, but a drug none the less. Alcohol is a drug and there is no reason you should not be able to supplement your coffee drug with an alcohol drug. As a matter of fact, both proposals and grant submissions become increasingly easier to write and inevitably more readable when you drink alcohol. If you work on an assembly line, you’ll find the conversation with the ketchup bottles passing you by on the conveyor belt are much more interesting after a couple of drinks. And sticking your arm in the labeling machine doesn’t hurt as much either. Your real question though was how to get away with drinking at work and I’ve got three sure fire methods:

1. Hide the alcohol out in the open
The best place to hide your booze is in a professionally mounted, “bronzed” bottle on a trophy stand with a plaque that reads, “My last drink was May 12th, 2002. One Day At A Time.” No one will ever suspect and if you get caught holding the bottle, make up an AA excuse like, “My sponsor said I should whisper my sins to the end of the bottle.” You might also want to get a bronzed cup, bronzed coke can and bronzed slice of lime.

2. Hide the alcohol in a cool, secreted place
Say you’re a beer drinker and you like your work brew sorta cold. I’ve got a place that will keep your beer kinda cold, allow you to drink in private, and no one will suspect a thing. Buy a six pack of 16oz tall boys and hide them in the back tank of the toilet in the bathroom. The water in the tank will keep them cool and you can sit in private and knock back a mostly cold one. BONUS – Pee while drinking your beer and get bonus points for multi-tasking. Loud grunting and farting noises will cover up the sound of you crushing the can.

3. Hide the booze in someone else’s desk
You’ll want to split a bottle up over several desks so that you will always have a source. Use water bottles for the clear liquors and root beer bottles for the browns. Hide the faux bottles in the files where they will never look like the “To Do” file or “Ameriaflora 2010.” When you need a drink, wait for your collogue to slip off to a meeting or the bathroom. Now sneak in and sip, sip, sip. Keep a nerf ball in your hand and if you get caught in their cubicle, slip the ball out and yell, “Here it is! Game on!” and run towards the Marketing Department.

Well ~Marcie, I hope this helps. And just remember, drinking isn’t a problem… it’s a challenge.
