Of Forwards and crushes

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of forwards. Funny stuff, these forwards. People seem to really want to know what other people’s crushes are really badly. All this started when orkut started getting popular among the girls and boys who were once my classmates in school. Then they started pulling all these funny forwards out of their hats.

In the last two weeks I’ve encountered:

  • The add-your-name-to-get-money mail: This one is very interesting. You add your name to the top of the list, and forward it to the next person, and it keeps going until it reaches the person who starts it, then she gives everyone money. Funny.
  • The sick kid mail: You’ve all seen this one. You forward it to the next person and AOL pays the sick kid 2 cents. Amusing. Lots of variations, with most starting with the “You will be the most hard hearted person if you delete this.” or some such.
  • The crushlist mail: Apparently, a crush list is a list of all the crushes you’ve ever had. Why people would keep such a list only god knows. So anyway, there are many different kinds of this mail. I’ve got two so far. Let’s quote quote.

    C_var_crsLst=1 {1,0}

    Send this to every one in your friends list, and you should be able to
    see the crush lists of everybody in your friends, it actually works

    And the other:

    man this is creepy its called mind reader. send this to every1 on ur list and then press F8 and ur crushes name will appear on ur screen

    Quite frankly hilarious.

I rate the last one, best. It’s the funniest I’ve seen in a long while.

  3. obviously i got mixed up with Forwards and just ridiculous mails.. but speaking of forwards the ones that really question the intelligence of the senders is “forward this mail to 15 friends on your list in the next 15 minutes or you will have bad luck in your love life for 7 years.If you forward this the true love of your life will call in 15 minutes”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Ha ha, “frandsheep” indeed. One of my cousins gets lots of those, crazy stuff.

    Oh yeah, and those other ones that claim that if you don’t forward the email to 20 other people you’re a hard hearted person. Nice try at emotional blackmail.

  5. yeah……and what about things like

    “forward this mail to 15 friends on your list in the next 15 minutes or you will have bad luck in your love life for 7 years.If you forward this the true love of your life will call in 15 minutes”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
