Green Eggs And Spam

You gotta love the effort on the part of the "spammers" these days. Google (gmail), is quite good about catching (most) spam. Occasionally I will still click into the spam folder out of curiosity and see what goodies I find. Most of the time it is mediocre junk advertising for larger penises, or satisfying your woman... but I took a look at it, and IT TURNED OUT TO BE A REAL LINK!!!

The text read as follows, and believe me I was really shocked, and I must say honored!!!

Hi,


Barack Obama (Washington, DC) has confirmed you as his fourth cousin once removed on We're Related.

Then I clicked "Learn More", and found out that it was a great April Fools joke by Facebook... And I consider myself a sharp cookie! Can you believe I actually thought enough for a second to look?? Bear in mind that I was not able to execute even ONE SIMPLE April Fool's Prank yesterday...

I must admit, though, that I was a tad relieved because I was really a little melancholy at the thought that I wouldn't be able to date him... Wait! Oh yeah, I'm married... oh well, and oh yeah, he's kinda married too.

Not that the cousin thing would've been a problem, I am from Mississippi after all. ;)

Well, it could be true... after all, George Bush, John Kerry and Hugh Heffner are related:
