MOM! TELL JIM to stop sending hoax virus alerts to everyone in the family. This time, he sent out the CELCOM hoax virus alert, the SandMan hoax hacker alert, the Win a Holiday hoax virus alert, the Join the Crew hoax virus alert, and the Penpal Greetings hoax virus alert.
Ah, the irony. I want to fight gullibility in the nation's capitol, yet I can't even educate my own family tree. At least Jim & I will have something to discuss over Thanksgiving dinner... assuming I don't get banished to the card table in the living room. Again.
By the way: Jim made a previous appearance on this website in 1996.
