    Sent to a friend at work

    A friend of mine is on his third straight day of utter craziness at work. He likes to keep in touch via email during the day. His emails today were showing a definite breakdown in his usual mathematically-precise persona. Delighted, I decided to break his head. (I am a bad friend) This is the email that did it:

    I will try and frame this email in the language that your brain is currently speaking. Ahem:

    Pedal's indeed bun the gog max! Madden the borken ducks quick and panicky, boggle 'em! Undone food wow and slonky, get the violin in the alien desert screaming the bread cabs! Woohoo enocmpa-thing! Maybe it is, see?


    Woot, woot!


    Thank you.

    And the reply:
    ...I just heard a sharp -pop!- and smoke is now wafting out my left ear.


    Can't think why.

    At least he isn't bored!
    We'll burn that bridge when we come to it.

    You seem like a fun person to have around, Fox

    Am I weird? I think I understand it.

    And be warned, no quick, brown dog ever jumped over this Fox.

    You must be, as I know that I did not understand it!
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    Hello Foxee

    No wonder all the s*** we buy costs so much these days. I have to assume this guy's salary is built into whatever his employer is selling (unless he works for free, which is unlikely, I think). Ain't technology grand?

    I'm glad we've had this little chat.

    All the best with your writing.

    Warmest regards
    Riis
