	I know this guy whose neighbor, a young man, was home recovering
from having been served a rat in his bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken.  So
anyway, one day he went to sleep and when he awoke he was in his bathtub
and it was full of ice and he was sore all over. 

	When he got out of the tub he realized that HIS KIDNEYS HAD BEEN
STOLEN and he saw a note on his mirror that said "Call 911!"  But he was
afraid to use his phone because it was connected to his computer, and
there was a virus on his computer that would destroy his hard drive if he
opened an e-mail entitled "Join the crew!"  He knew it wasn't a hoax
because he himself was a computer programmer who was working on a software
to save us from Armageddon when the year 2000 rolls around.  His program
will prevent a global disaster in which all the computers get together and
distribute the $600 Neiman Marcus cookie recipe under the leadership of
Bill Gates.  (It's true - I read it all last week in a mass e-mail from
BILL GATES HIMSELF, who was also promising me a free Disney World vacation
and $5,000 if I would forward the e-mail to everyone I know.)  The poor
man then tried to call 911 from a pay phone to report his missing kidneys,
but reaching into the coin-return slot he got jabbed with an HIV-infected
needle around which was wrapped a note that said, "Welcome to the world of

	Luckily he was only a few blocks from the hospital - the one,
actually, where that little boy who is dying of cancer is, the one whose
last wish is for everyone in the world to send him an e-mail and the
American Cancer Society has agreed to pay him a nickel for every e-mail he
receives.  I sent him two e-mails and one of them was a bunch of x's and
o's in the shape of an angel (if you get it and forward it to twenty
people you will have good luck but ten people you will only have OK luck
and if you send it to less than ten people you will have BAD LUCK FOR
SEVEN YEARS).  So anyway the poor guy tried to drive himself to the
hospital, but on the way he noticed another car driving along without his
lights on.  To be helpful, he flashed his lights at him and was promptly
shot as part of a gang initiation.  And it's a little-known fact that the
Y1K problem caused the Dark Ages.
