As we know, you have to be so careful about who you're showing babies to, and get references -- and especially you have to keep your wits against these d@mn illiterate Nigerian scam artists! (THE ADS SAY "NO SHIPPING!!! WTF?!)
Then recently, I began thinking: they no doubt have a small team of "experts" who decode each message that I send them with fastidious attention to meaning and detail. I have started a separate email account that I don't mind having spammed, and I'm letting the fur fly. Below is an example of a great new sport that I call: FUN! with Nigerian scam artists

Would you prefer the carcass stuffed or unstuffed? I think that unstuffed is more dignified, but if you elect to have it stuffed, I could erect it on a pedestal, maybe in a "bird-of-prey" pose, with one foot lifted, like it's about to swoop in and ambush a mouse. Yes? No? I kindly respectfully hope that payment will immediately make all conditions and hear from me agreementwise now, meesohorny. I prefer payment in cashiers cheque.
