It used to be that to find out who or what was ‘in’ or ‘out’ you consulted the society section of the local newspaper, or Look magazine, or a well-known celebrity reporter for the latest on whatever was deemed the latest ‘in’ and ‘out.’ Now we have the Internet to help us determine what is ‘in’ and what is ‘out.’ What is ‘cool’ and what is ‘not cool.’ What is ‘healthy’ and what is not ‘healthy.’

This is proven in a recent e-mail that I received from someone who ‘forwarded’ it to me. (I have edited it for time and content.)

I want to thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your chain letters over the past two years. Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy.

Because of your concern... I no longer can drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains. I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put "Under God" on their cans

I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer. I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a stupid number for which I will get the phone bill from ‘you know where’ with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Uzbekistan. Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an email to 7 of my friends and make a wish within 5 minutes.

I no longer have any savings at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail forwarding program.

I will now return the favor. If you don’t send this e-mail to at least 1200 people in the next 60 seconds, the fleas of a thousand camels will infest your armpits. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of a friend dad’s uncle’s neighbor’s cousin, and he’s a lawyer.
