Hey, see this? I've won Lottery wor.....

I have been receiving many of these emails lately, and if each and every one is real, you can kiss my feet. I am a millionaire, many times over.

I'll fly every one of you in my list first class to Melbourne, or what the heck, hold a competition of some kind, one lucky blogger will share half the money with me. Nice hor? SO generous of me. Then comes this sentence. IF ONLY...

I have never seen a worse kind of official announcement, drafted as such, disregarding the upper and lower cases, the use of paragraphs, the uneven dotted lines, everything. DO at least con with style... jeeeezzz!
