    Default Who knows, but hated not to share...

    This was a email to me....
    Hello Everyone,
    I just wanted to let you all know of a true thing that happened right here in Monett on Tuesday of this week. I'll try to make the story as short as possible. My dad works for Efco, and one of his men got hurt in the eye so he had to go to the doctor and then over to Ramey's to get his prescription filled. Once he got over to Ramey's pharmacy he was in line behind an elderly lady, and she was behind a Muslim type man ( Osama's type ) with a turban on his head too. Well, anyway, he came up $2.00 short on his medicine, and he turned to the old lady, and she said sure, I'll give you the $2.00 that you need. Well, then it came time for Brian ( my dad's worker ) to go up and get his medicine and get it paid for and then he was headed back out to his car. When he got out to the parking lot, he was parked by the elderly lady, and the Muslim guy was standing there talking to her and told him to come over too. He proceeded to tell them that since they had been so kind to him that day, that he is going to return the favor and give them a message. He said that after Sept. 11th of this year, do not drink any Pepsi, or Pepsi products!!!! And then he bowed down to them said Thank You again and left. ~~~~~ Ok, I know you're probably thinking how weird this is, but it's kind of just like a bomb threat. You have to take it seriously. So, I just thought I would share this w/ the people that I care about, so if something really does happen you would know.

    Thanks,

    URBAN LEGEND


    Have gotten the same e-mail but as the story went in mine it was a drug store here in Michigan. My other favorite was the woman who was dating the man who vanished and left her a note not to fly on Sept. 11th (she was a airline worker of some sort)

    Right. And the same thing went arounf with coke and the woman that gave the muslim man $2.00 for the food at the grocery store. And the same woman loaned another muslim guy $2.00 at a vending machine and he told her not to go to any Malls on halloween. Anything you get in your e-mail that is even remotely similar to that is total BS that someone made up.

    Yeah, as long as you stay away from domestic beer on the 11th, you should be okay.

    Back to the Pepsi thing, wouldn't it be a tad difficult to do something to our nations, uh, Pepsi supply to coincide with the 11th given the different locations and times that the stuff is packaged?

    Default What about coffee?

    WHAT ABOUT COFFEE? Did they say anything about coffee? Especially Starbucks. Did they say anything about Starbucks, like "don't go to Starbucks on your birthday"? Are cappacino drinkers at risk? Are the "frappacino" drinkers still being targeted? Does anyone know if Juan Valdez has switched sides? What about his donkey? Still a friendly?
    Showers! Was showers mentioned; something like "if you flush the toilets on September 10th while someone is taking a shower, the water will get very hot"? And will there soon be a shortage of towels? How in God's name will we dry ourselves?
    Man, I've got to stop. I'm scaring the sh*t out of myself.

    That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read.


    And while we are dismissing urban legends. . .

    Just after Sept. 11th there was one about all the car companies and how much they donated. . . remember? ALL FALSE!!! Toyota and Honda all donated a bunch of money and generators and ATVs as well.

    On the Internet:

    You CAN:
    -buy inkjet cartridge refills cheap
    -increase your breast or penis size with a special cream (available only on the Internet)
    -meet lonely women on the Internet by following a link sent to you by someone who "missed you"

    You can NOT:
    -get a free trip to Disneyland by forwarding messages to all your friends
    -get ANYTHING from Microsoft for forwarding messages to all your friends
    -get ANYTHING from anyone for forwarding messages to all your friends
    -get a virus for opening any e-mail with a specific title (even if it is true you have to open the attachment people! And if you don't have virus software installed then you made your own bed)
    -rescue a missing child by reading the e-mail (those are all hoaxes too)

    Don't forward ANYTHING you didn't ask for.
    Don't believe ANYTHING you didn't ask for.

    Between corporate sabotage and "the rat in the bottle", the security at plants like Coke and Pepsi are so tight you have a better shot of walking into a federal building naked than you do of spiking a batch of cola products. And the corporations have the money to have the best security. I'd be more worried about a municipal water supply than a product from a giant corporation.

    Huh! I'd heard that the muslim had a flat tire right down the road from me here. What a bunch of crap.

    And George is right about the security of Pepsi--I have walked naked into a federal building, and it was much easier than whizzing in the beer vats at Budweiser. (Oops, did I say that out loud?)

    An excellent source to check out rumors (and save yourself embarrassment or harrassment) is www.snopes.com
