Email Forwards....

First off remember the contest, There are some pretty good suggestions out there and can't wait to see whatever else comes up.

Secondly, here's my little lesson on email-forward-etiquette. If you forward one of those factual ones and not just the funny ones, then please, please, look it up on Snopes. Because if you don't I will and I'll "reply-all" with the facts. So, guys, Obama is not a Muslim, Target is not a French company, McCain did indeed say the "Democratic Party is a fine party", and that Peggy what's her name is not missing. Seriously, if you haven't already, check out Snopes --- especially before you forward (um...yes Colleen and Shaina, I just got a forward from our fave forwarder)!

Okay, off my soap box. The following forward will give you guys from, in, want to be in Colorado a good laugh. Everyone else will either think we Coloradoans are crazy or so want to come live here too. And no, I did not look this up on Snopes, because it's just a funny one:

Half of these could apply to Minnesota too!

Stephanie said...

As a native Minnesotan who now lives in Montana I can say that these definitely apply to both these states as well...

Tracey said...

I've definitely made a costume or two with multiple layers in mind...

Scott said...

Wow! Foxworthy knows his Colorado! Ugh! I hate bad forwarders! I have an aunt in Maine who forwarded me a message about a lost dog... in Maine. LOL!

Colleen O said...

What do you do with the that kind of logic? Block them - hahaha - that would send a message.

Great Jake pictures too! Happy birthday baby Jakie.

jenelle said...

Other than the mountain/altitude thing you could be in Michigan...

Aimee said...

Love this forward. I laughed the whole time. I didn't know half of these until I moved her. Glad I did cuz of all my friends!

readsalot said...

Truth or fiction is another good site. I do the same thing that you do, telling everyone that the email was sent to that it is wrong. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Vanessa said...

I'm not from Colorado, but these seriously cracked me up!

addhumorandfaith said...

These are funny, even if I don't understand all the terms!

Logziella said...

Funny. I have lived in Oklahoma and Michigan and have seen the same list with a few differences and felt it could apply to both states...isn't that funny?
