Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

Welcome! You've got gonorrhea!


Yes, for those of you who are no longer surprised at anything that shows up in your email, this one makes you the star attraction! According to MSNBC, Los Angeles county health officials were trying to think of a way to help their patients had tested positive for a veneral disease notify their past sexual partners, without that messy embarrassment that would be inevitable otherwise in a person to person conversation/argument/fight/arrest/arraignment/ lawsuit/settlement/grudge/revenge/homicide/ arrest/jennyjonesshow/movieoftheweek/ lather/rinse/repeat.

Their solution? Cute little e-cards (such as the one you see above) that can be sent anonymously. Thus ensuring a huge rise in the numbers of computers that need to be repaired as people spit-take their morning coffee all over the world.

Is this what it's come to? We don't even have to face that horrible one night stand anymore after they gave us crabs 'cause we just get to email them these GQ models who get to tell them? "Hell yes!", a nation of you cry back and I hear you, I do. It just somehow seems like if you were that stupid in the first place and the embarrassment of living out that hell of having to tell everyone you've slept with in the last 5 years is now relieved from you, what's to really keep you from doing it again? Besides the crabs, I mean......

And what about these cards anyway with the Your message goes here? What's that message? "My bad."?

Modern life just kills me sometimes. Ya know?

You're blogging. There is a God.

I never open my e mail unless it's either from people I know, or illegal drugs on the net. I'm safe either way.
