I guess this is as much mock_the_crazy as mock_the_stupid, so I fully understand if you deem it inappropriate. My reaction to it was "WTF" and an incredulous laugh, so I thought I would share it here.
The following letter is NOT spam, but meant in 100% earnest despite all appearances.
Background: Saturday I went to a book fair in Copenhagen. While standing looking at some books (published by the Danish police - ironically enough) a man came up to me and asked if he could take a minute of my time. Thinking he was there to take a survey on my opinions of the book fair, I agreed. He explained that he was writing a 20,000 page book about Danish culture, sports, politics etc. and that he was trying to get it published. In this he needed my help and asked me to sign a piece of paper saying (paraphrased): I agree with Mr. Hellesen in the following:
1) That he should be allowed help from a lawyer (paid????)
2) That his 20,000 book should be published
3) That Bill Gates should give him the money he has promised him as soon as possible.
4) That Maersk should give him the money they have promised him as soon as possible.
Funnily enough, nobody had signed it yet. I said that I needed more details before signing it, so he gave me the following letter to take home and read, and an address to send my signature to.( Collapse )
My apologies if reading this made your eyes bleed. His Danish is almost as bad.
Guess I won't
be signing, nor sending that letter to him...
