The Wit and Wisdom of Gene Elder: E Mail as Message

Posted By on Mon, Jul 20, 2009 at 2:50 AM

Body of e-mail accompanying this image, received by Gene Elder:

Money Goddess

This is a Money Goddess Lakshimi. Pass it to 6 of your good friends, or family and be rich in 4 Days.

Pass it to 12 of your good friends or family and be rich in 2 Days.

I am not joking. You will find an unexpected windfall. If you delete it, you will never know!


Here's the text of the e-mail Gene Elder sent back:

Dear Money Coming My Way:

I'm ready and willing to annoy more than 6 friends for some ready cash. Here are my friends who need money too. Please make sure I get mine first. Do they have to be friends? I don't want my friends to know that I will be rich.

I have more than 12 people that I don't really like all that much.
Gene Elder

ADDENDUM: After I e-mailed Gene to let him know I'd blogged this, he replied:

"Well, I just hope this works. I will let you know on Wednesday, that will be 4 days.
Otherwise I am going to complain to the other Gods. And this time I mean it."

As God(s) is my witness, that man cracks me right up.
