Email Chain Letters
Have you ever received an offer to have several million
dollars transferred to you (if you'll give up your bank account number), or
been sent the Neiman Marcus's cookie recipe? What fun! Here's a few chain
letters we've received over the years that do a good job of thumbing their
collective noses at the whole idea!
Upgrade your dog
Having problems with your current dog?? Here is your chance
Are you experiencing too many reserves and 2nd places to inferior animals in
the dog show ring? In the obedience ring, does your dog forget her/his own
Well, this simple chain letter is meant to bring relief and happiness to you.
Unlike most chain letters, it doesn't cost money. Simply send a copy of this
letter to six other dog owners who are dissatisfied with the way their dogs
are working and showing.
Also, bundle up your dog and send him/her to the dog owner at the top of this
list and add your name to the bottom of the list. Do not use a return address
or the post office may try to contact you.
In one week you will receive 16,436 dogs and one of them should be a real
winner. Have faith in this letter and do not break the chain.
One owner broke the chain and got her own dog back.
Did you know who in 1923 was:
1. President of the largest steel company?
2. President of the largest gas company?
3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?
4. Greatest wheat speculator?
5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?
6. Great Bear of Wall Street?
These men should have been considered some of the world's
most successful men. At least they found the secret of making money. Now more
than 55 years later, do you know what has become of these men?
1. The President of the largest steel company, Charles
Schwab, died a pauper.
2. The President of the largest gas company, Edward
Hopson, is insane.
3. The President of the N.Y.S.E., Richard Whitney, was
released from prison to die at home.
4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
5. The President of the Bank of International
Settlement shot himself.
6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Rivermore,
died of suicide.
The same year, 1923, the winner of the most important golf
championship, Gene Sarazan, won the U.S. Open and PGA Tournaments. Today he
is still playing golf and is solvent.
CONCLUSION: STOP WORRYING ABOUT BUSINESS AND START PLAYING
This letter originated in The Netherlands, has been passed
around the world at least 20 times, bringing good luck to everyone who passed
it on. The one who breaks the chain will have bad luck.
Do not keep this letter. Do not send money. Just have your
wonderful, efficient cpu make five additional copies and send it to five of
your friends to whom you wish good luck. You will see that something good
happens to you four days from now if the chain is not broken. This is not a
joke. You will receive good luck in four days.
That last part is, of course, a joke...

This paper has been sent to you for bad luck. The
original has been destroyed by millions of furious recipients, enraged
from having received thousands of copies each. It has never traveled
around the world, because if it did, the world would immediately

- After he passed this letter on, a Montana Spinach
Control Officer got his nose stuck in a cow-milking machine was
heard to scream, "I'm sorry!" as he was sucked into its
innards and pasteurized.
- John Elliot tried to take his dog for a walk, and,
because he sent the letter on, was ethered, robbed of all his money,
tied up, and had his dog super-glued to his chest. Eventually his
lungs exploded, killing him.
Do note the following:
- Hebert Pudstrom received the chain in 1953. He
asked his secretary to make twenty copies and send them out. Later
that afternoon a freak earthquake destroyed the office building.
Geologists were puzzled; the epicenter was nowhere near any known
- General George Patton, who sent the letter on, saw
what he thought was a quarter in the street. When he bent down to
grab it, a beautiful woman in a miniskirt walked by, and he got a
great view. The woman noticed this, cried, "RAPE!", and he
was arrested and received a 10 year minimum sentence. His aide,
Colonel Roger Bumswiver, who did not pass on the letter, had simultaneously
tried to pick up a similar object, but was not noticed by the woman.
- Heywood Daddit, an unemployed chicken choker,
received the letter and lost it. His wife then went bowling with his
best friend and was killed in a freak pin-setting accident. He
inherited $7 million. Later, after finding the letter again, he
mailed out twenty copies. 2 days later in Miami he was killed in a

young woman in Texas. It was faded and barely readable, so she did
not realize that this paragraph applied to her. While attempting to
retype it, her typewriter exploded, embedding the x key in her
cheek. After being released from the hospital, she tried to draft it
longhand. While writing, the pencil slipped and jabbed through the
palm of her hand. Giving up, she tossed the faded scrap into the
trash. While being treated for lead poisoning she met a male nurse
and was happily married a few days later.
You must not distribute any copies within 96 hours of
receiving this letter, or ever. In fact, you must destroy it to fully
exorcise its evil influences. Those who do not will have extremely bad
luck forever and ever (until death, unless they still haven't destroyed
the letter, in which case it will continue even then). Those who
do destroy this voodoo curse will be rewarded with a long and satisfying
