“This chain letter was started in 1972 by a man in Campbell, Missouri, who was completely broke. In less than one year he became extremely wealthy . . . all because of this letter!
If you want to be rich as well, write five copies of this letter and send them to five of your friends. Don’t break the chain! The last person who did had his penis severed by an electric drill (the day after his wife left him for another man) and almost died.”
These things were huuuuge in the 1970s. If anything, the advent of Email has made these imbecilic and ridiculous things even more prevalent. That’s called progress.
