Terribly Old Email Humor: Got some lately?

My mother just got a home computer, and, of course, anything she gets from her coworkers and friends is the latest humor, soooooo...she forwards all of these damn things to me now.

I read this thread title and immediately thought of *my* parents. I get more humor e-mails from them than anyone else... some is ancient, some is new. All is lame and unfunny.

I just deal with it... delete and move on. I'd much prefer that they actually WROTE to me, though. I'd take an actual personal e-mail every few weeks over silly jokes any day.

I have a rather forgetful brother. I've gotten some jokes several times from him. And I don't know how many times he's forwarded the "rocket-booster on the back of a Camaro" story...

bboisvert,

Yeah, you're probably right. I think I'm just going to respond with a few LOL's and delete the rest.

I just told everyone to never, ever forward me chain letters ever again, ever. Everyone got all pissy at first, but after several times reinforcing it, I'm now chain letter free.
