This week some nasty piece of work snuck into my email account, stole all the names from my contacts list and sent them all an email pretending to be me. It also linked to some shopping site and most people, knowing me, thought it was a joke and opened it!

Now what?

I wish I knew! I hope it doesn't lay dormant in these other computers then all of a sudden steal all the names from their contacts and email them fraudulently.

I wrote to the supplier of my anti virus and they emailed me back full of concern; "We're sorry to hear your PC has been infected with a Virus. Although, ** ***** is a premium service, we cannot guarantee that it will protect you from all viruses on the Internet."

The email was called New Shopping and if you get one don't open it! I know this is a bit late for the people who already did and for that I am very sorry!

On a lighter note:

The "Word" at Church

The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise
for answered prayers. A lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I
have Praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck
and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the
doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp
from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom
must have experienced. "Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors
performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece
together the Crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to
hold it in place." Again, the men in the congregation were unnerved and
squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on
Tom. "Now," she announced in a quavering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out
of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should
recover completely." All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and
tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say. A man stood up and
walked slowly to the podium. He said, "I'm Tom." The entire congregation
held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife that the word is sternum."

Oh! What a pain for both you and Tom. Blinking virus is a pain in the arse :O TFx

That is hilarious! The joke obviously, not the fact that your email has been infected and sent itself to loads of high profile people in your contacts folder. Sigh...shall we leave town now?

Damn internet crap! Sorry to hear about the virus, Chopper. What good is anti-virus and firewalls, then?

Loved the joke! LOL

Excellent joke. I always try to work out the punchline whilst reading/hearing jokes but this one (like most if I'm honest) surprised me.

Liked the joke.

Hope you can become un-virused.
