Henry Paulson proposal as Nigerian spam: This is a matter of great urgence. We need a immediate blank cheque.


I was remarking to my husband over breakfast this morning how I regularly received junk mail and spam that was more credible that Paulson's proposal for our economic salvation. Well, this has occurred to others as well. Americablog has a really delicious  rendition of the Paulson proposal as Nigerian spam:

Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and we hope to commence the transfer latest seven (7) banking days from the date of the receipt of the following information: all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. This way we will use your country's name to apply for payment in your name. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

As seen on TV! A deal like this does not come along every day! Act now without blinking!
