My reply to this foolish SPAMMER was:

Are you on drugs?

This is by far the most ridiculous spam thing I’ve seen in quite some time.

Please tell me your personal phone number, email address, bank routing information and home address so that I can make arrangements to give you First Fool of 2015 award.

Congratulations on your prize.


Mr. Gadsby J. Michael’s response soon there after was

“Keep it for your punk father”


What a professional.

Let’s all try to remember the name Gadsby J. Michael. He is a winner in my book.
