TRUE OR FALSE? The Cialis Spam Edition

(This is a new feature wherein I tell you a story and you decide if it really happened or not. And if you guess right, you don’t win anything because it’s an anonymous poll. But remember: the real reward is the knowledge that you wasted 10 seconds of your day voting.)

For weeks the Most Jewish Man has been complaining out loud in his office to no one in particular about all the emails he has been receiving advertising Cialis. Finally, yesterday he snapped. He called Eli Lilly and Company, the makers of Cialis, to complain. When he finally got someone on the phone, he said, “Why are you sending me these emails? I don’t need Cialis. And if I ever do need a medication to help me, you know . . . I certainly won’t be choosing Cialis!”

Then, after a brief pause, he confusedly asked, “Well if you aren’t sending them to me then who is?"

Did this really happen?

Yes
No
I love Puppytown!

I only wish I had someone to call when it comes to all those stupid fake e-cards that are being sent to me lately. I get at least 3 of them daily.

Tahred of it, dammit! (I never get any cialis emails, though. How do the spammers know the different between a female and a male inbox, I wonder?)

Well Faith, I'd hope their parents sat them down at some point and explained to them the difference between a male and a female inbox...

Your new feature is just like White Castle's latest ad campaign. I suggest you rethink.

Yesterday I thought I was going to die of a hangover. Then I found your blog somehow, and laughed out loud more than 4 times. Awesome. Thanks.

oh no! I voted 'yes' before I watched the puppy town video - can I change my vote?
