Drink of the Week for Sep 24th, 2004: The Funny Fist

What we had to say

If a man disobeys the law and doesn't wear his helmet while riding his bike, and then gets struck by lightning, making him veer into the path of an oncoming scooter, and he suffers a serious finger injury and all his hair is on fire, is there a social responsibility to assist this man? It's issues like these that weight heavily on *** NO CARRIER

We interrupt this week's drink message because it has come to our attention that Drink of the Week is getting caught by spam filters. Now, we're all for filtering spam. But our weekly little ramble is the highest quality organic free-range herbal infusion of non-spam email. We're a zero on the spam scale. Or a 1, whatever the scale is, we don't know. We're at the bottom. Maybe it's because we used the word spam. Maybe because spam filters are pushing a global corporate agenda and keeping the little guys down in a secret plot to control all ... quantum ... something... food. Or maybe it's because our email is actually written by people every week, something the spam filters find just too hard to believe.

Anyhow, please tell your friends to dig into their Hothoo or Ya-mail accounts and click "NOT JUNK" if they see us in there. We don't like sitting next to all those .. you know ... ads. Even if they do work in 15 minutes, or increase length AND girth. And now back to your email:

*** and so if you give a man a fish, he eats for a day, but if you give a man a robot, that's way cooler than just giving him a dumb 'ol fish. So here's an extremely interesting drink that you should all try, because we can't send you fish, or robots.
