I Was Just Thinking........(oh no)...........

So this past weekend I received one of those forwarded, forwarded, forwarded emails that we all hate. This was the content.

MY DOG
I went down this morning to sign up my Dog for welfare. At first the lady said, “Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare”. So I explained to her that my Dog is black, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and has no frigging clue who his Daddy is. So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify. My Dog gets his first check Friday. Damn this is a great country.


What do you all think?
Do you think emails like this are funny? What do you do when you get them? Send it back with a note? Delete it? By our silence, are we saying we find it acceptable?

In this day and age, how could anyone write something like this or forward it on?

Anyone out there?

Do you think it's funny?

Anyone?

Didn't think so.

The person who sent this to me doesn't see themselves as racist, by the way.

Gee....I hope it wasn't me!

Actually, I don't read all those emails that I get.....sorry. And, I don't pass them on.....sorry. Don' tell anyone but I don't even read the jokes....
But, this one....well....it is definitely a bit tasteless.

it makes me a little uncomfortable. and by a little, i actually mean a lot.

i'm not big into forwards. i usually delete them. unless they involve pictures of adorable animals. i'm a sucker for those.

I will actually venture beyond tasteless and say that this is a horrifying forward. I usually delete them immediately so I don't have to read things like this!

Wider audience? Now, that's a good one....took me awhile. But, when I got it, I got it.
Got any snow over there in your end of town?
Yeah, we're getting buried here on this side of the tubes....
Wider audience.....love it!
