For the past few years, at least once a month I’ve received an email with the subject “CYBORG DINOSAURS”, which always begins like this:
I am a science fiction writer & I wrote four science fiction stories about dinosaurs. And I do need you to makes movies from my stories?? My first story is Prehistoric park. And my second story is Pterodactyloid man’s flight to Paris. And my third story is Pterodactyloid man gose around the world in 76 days. And my fourth story is Alien Dinosaur Planet……… With this e-mail I do have four drawing of the logo’s of my stories. But I do have allots more drawing of my stories then just the logo’s……………….
As promised, four drawings come attached to each email, all along the lines of this one, for the aforementioned Pterodactyloid man’s flight to Paris:
Amazing! For years, I’ve been laughing about these emails, talking about them with colleagues, and even forwarding them along to friends.
Last week, one of those friends Googled up the author and subject line, and sent back this video:
I am, indeed, going to hell.
