Sometimes it's good to look back in time and have a nice long laugh at yourself. I have a feeling I might have mentioned this here in the past, but it's worth posting about again. Back in 1995 (almost 10 years ago...wow) after being asked why I linked to Avoiding Corn from my personal website, I emailed the site's owner the following response:

Date: Fri, 8 Dec 1995 19:14:49 -0500
From: KLNA91B@prodigy.com (BERNIE G ZIMMERMANN)
X-Mailer: PRODIGY Services Company Internet mailer [PIM 3.2-334.50]

Thanks for writing! The reason we send the "English Bloke go here" link to your page is because your page is our favorite of all the pages on the WWW. It makes us laugh every time (Jonathan). English Bloke is this dude who keeps E-mailing and harassing us with the pistrad pirates rugby stats for 1995 and questions like, "Can you please send some nude pictures of your Grandma?". That is why we send him to your page (he sounds like he should start avoiding corn). Thanks for the errors on my page. Nobody's sled is perfect.

Thanks. THANKS. CHONG WILL BE BACK.

ESSAY.

I'm not sure what's funnier, the contents of the email or the fact that my email address was actually KLNA91B@prodigy.com. Oh, and the part about English Bloke is true. I don't think I'll ever know why he felt the need to keep me up-to-date with those rugby scores.
