  I know...it's been a while
And this is probably not eh way to start up again...

But I got this in an email today and I found it very amusing! I think what amused me the most was the fact that I could read it without a hitch...and if you heard me read it out loud, you might've thought I wrote it!

Enjoy! Or not, I don't care!
