    Could this be for real? Some of it seems as if it could be real, but then 'prepay for your air-to-air rockets and get a free rocket launcher' seems a bit "WTF!" The 'clearance offer' on heroin seems a bit odd as well. Do drug dealers do clearance offers???






  • You do realise that the only meaningful type of rocket launcher for an air-to-air missile - is a fighter plane!



  • Looks like a  social experiment to me...



  • 6. Fake currencies, such as Euros and US dollars, prices would match competition.

     For me, that's the funniest. I wonder how much a US dollar costs...
     



  • If they offer a really cheap delivery option for the rockets, don't take it.

    Am I the only one to consider that part funny?

     No, I hadn't noticed that... My eyes were reading air-to-air, but my brain was seeing 'surface-to-air'

    I suppose some strong springs might count as well!

    If you pay in Pound sterling, not a lot...

    I'd expect fake money to cost less than the real thing in any case.

    And yeah, the email is obviously a joke.

    Though, any aircraft would be perfectly fine to launch an air-to-air missile. A hot-air balloon or Cessna would count just fine. 



  • Give me this guy's email address, stat!  I'm running short of gay-slaves, err I mean Tomahawk rockets.



  • I got this same email a couple of years ago.

    Adjusting an old joke about Rusian Rubles:


    Q: What is the exchange rate between dollar, pound, and euro?

    A: One pound of dollars equals one euro.

      Oh puh-lease.  If you have to ask... 
    well, really, if you have to ask, your brain must have been removed and
    replaced by cottage cheese!  Most people use this thing called
    "common sense" to save themselves from asking such daft questions...

      Say, have you heard they're removing the word "gullible" from the dictionary?

    [Hint:
    Try googling some of the phrases from the spam.  This hoax has
    been in circulation for at least four years.  It's a crude smear
    perpetrated by one gang of card-frauding script kiddies against
    another, rival group.]

     



  • I bet it's just the CIA trying to fish out all those terrorists that frequent this site.



  • Man, that's an oldie.  It was originally an attempt to get darkprofits.com shut down.

    How about using a surface-to-air missile to launch the air-to-air missile?

    While you were trying to connect all your missiles together, some men with bayonets came along and chopped you all up.

    yeah i can relate. one time i went fishing for terrorists and i baited my fish hook with a gay slave...  i got lots of bites but i was never able to pull them up into the boat.  the combined weight of a terrorist and a gay slave is really fucking heavy.

    You can pay them off with the fake Euro's and US dollars.



  • This is funny, I was about to post a very similar Sidebar WTF. My favorite spam mail was "How one can become a terrorist?", which I received via the tramp-devel mailing list three years ago:
