Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Tip of the hat to Sapphoto for this Nigerian scam related link.

Seems a Florida gentleman lost everything he and his wife had saved because he had somehow lived to be 73 but had never heard there was no such thing as a free lunch.

I do feel some pity for the man, who is still so gullible and trusting that he doesn't think he was scammed. And certainly the people who took his money deserve to spend all eternity chewing on razor blades. But for the love of God, how friggin' stupid can you be and still be able to speak in complete sentences?

Speaking of which; do we have a Nigeria IV post coming up, or did Bello finally remember the pants of his cut and run?

Sadly, my brother Bello decided not to continue our correspondence. And I haven't gotten any more offers since then. I guess I'm going to have to go in to work on Monday...
