Holiday Time!

Yeah, its time for the wishing of happy holidays and getting fat eating lots of turkey and pies. For myself, I can't stand the holidays except for being with my wonderful family. What I can't stand is the working at holiday time. The people who love to leave their brains at home when they shop for their little families. Oh My Gawd, where do people keep their brains when they Christmas shop. Damn, I think they just walk up and hand their brains to a total idiot at the door and then go and try to shop. May I say the operative word is TRY ..

My theory is that the Big box at the front of most stores is the Toys for Tots campaign. It's actually not for toys per say; it's for all the adult brains. For all the thinking abilities that are inherent are dropped in this box for the future use of children. Hence when older adults get those 'childlike' emotions again. They went and dipped in to the toys for tots box at the front of the stores.

So, just remember don't check your brain at the door of a department store. You may not get yours back.


Here ya go.


Who are These People?

I am sure you have gotten many of these type of e-mails in months,years decades *almost* past. But I have to ask Who are these people? Why, oh why do they think that people are SO gullible to think that this will be the great get rich quick program. In the last few months I have received many many many of these stupid e-mails. Here are a few--- bad grammar and all. Please forgive the spelling in e-mails listed below I just thought I would leave them the way I received them.


Dear Sir/Madam
I presume this letter will come to you as a suprise,but as things unfold, we
will know each other better and how I got your contact.I will start by
introducing myself to you, I am Mrs Mary Obasaki,the wife of Chief Jackson
Gaius Ibe, the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive of Nigeria
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).I am very sure that you will be of a
good assistance after carefully reading my letter. For many years of
marriage now between me and my husband,I have not given birth,and this has
really troubled my husband.This is as a result of so much respect attached
to local Tradition Culture and Custom in there community, so my husband has
decided to break the marriage. In short to be sincere and honest with
you,with the present situation of things now,my matrimonial home look broken.

I am being treaten daily by my susposed legitmate husband to get me out from
the home.My husband parents and brothers are not left out in this
matter.This situation has really affected me psychologically,most of the
time I am in the church to pray and rest myself,because there is no room for
rest in my own home again.As I am writing to you now,I am no longer assured
of a matrmonial home, hence I seek your urgent assistance and help me
out,which I know it will go a long way in geting me settled down finally.I
want to use this opportunity,since my husband has abandoned me because of
childlessness,to move the $20 million us dollars into your custody for safe
keeping,pending my arrival in your country.Be informed that this said amount
was given to my husband as gratification from some foreign oil companies he
helpede in securing Allocation for the Drilling of Crude Oil in Nigeria.As a
civil servant he does not want to be esposed,so he gave me this money to
keep in my personal account,this was when the going was okay between us,so
that he can exonerate himself from the eyes of Government security
operatives and the civil ervice mission(CSC)which is the body that
scrutinizes the activities of all civil servants in Nigeria as checks and
balances for official misconduct.

To be sincere and honest with you,this money is never connected with
drugs,money laundry,firearms and looting,which I beleive might put fears in
you andconsequently withdrawing your help for security reasons.Hence the
source of this said money is clean and clear.This money was deposited in my
personal Domicillary Account and I have discussed with the bank manager who
is very close to me,my intention to transfer the money out of Nigeria and he
promise to render to me all the assistance I needed to transfer the money
out of Nigeria.All I need now is for you to send me your bank account and
other informations,to enable my bank apply for foreign exchange at the
Federal Ministry of Finance with your name as the beneficiary of the
fund.This is how my bank has planned it,to avoid any suspicion from our apex
bank.Be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free and my husband
will not raise any alarm,because he will not like to put himself and his
position in {NNPC} in jeopardy,and if he does,he stands to loose his job. As
soon as I receive your response and your willingness to help as regards to
this,I will furnish you on the next line of action to act ely.Note,as soon
as the money is successfully transfered into your account,I will start
coming to meet you in your country.I promise to mpensate you very well at
the successful end,this is the guranttee I am giving you from my heart of
heart.Be informed according to my bank ,this transaction will not last more
than 7 bank working days and it will be concluded because every
necessary/vital arrangements has put in place,i will be highly appreciated
by me.Thanks and God bless your family.

Yours Sincerely,
Mrs Mary obasaki.

I am a treasury manager of a well known bank here in South Africa. I have a concealed business suggestion for us to do. We had a client named MR. ANDREAS SCHRANNER from Munich, Germany. He was a contractor and an arms dealer to The south african national Government. He made several deposits (fixed) with our treasury department amounting to $15.5million upon maturity, several notices where sent to him but we never got a response untill we discovered that he and his entire family died in an air crash in the year 2000. Below is a website which I will appreciate you going through to read the information.

Since then nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the funds. I have secretly discussed this matter with a senior manager with us and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us although due to his position he did not want to take active part but as soon as you follow my instructions everything will be successful because we will be working hand in hand with him. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that we would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to the late Adndreas Schranner so you will be able to receive his funds.


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted someone in the South African department of Justice who will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Adndreas Schranner. All that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, Address and contact telephone number so that the person who will handle the title documents can commence his job. As soon as this is done a letter of probate/Administration will be issued in your favor for
Making you the Administrator of the late Mr. Adndreas Schranner's Estate and with this you can make application for the release of the funds with our Bank to you.

There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt legal methods in applying for the release of the funds to you. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters
Concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 35% for you and 5% for any expenses incurred during the course of this Transaction. Should you be interested please send me your private phone and fax numbers for easy communication, you can write me via my private email address and I will provide you with more details of this operation. Your prompt response to this letter will be

Kindly send your reply to:

Kind Regards,

Bailey from OHIO has already contacted them and also presented to them all the necessary documentations evidencing your claim purported to have been signed personally by you prior to the release of your contract fund valued at about US$8,000,000.00 (Eight million united states dollars), but the Central Bank office did the wise thing by insisting on hearing from you personally before the go ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank information’s which was forwarded to them by the above named Lady so that was the main reason why they contacted us so as to assist them in making the investigations. They further informed us that we should warn our dear citizens who must have been informed of the contract payment which was awarded to them from the Central Bank of Nigeria, to be very careful prior to these irregularities so that they don't fall victim to this ugly circumstance.
