3rd - Meyran Kraus with:
Our program simply involves the folding and processing of pamphlets. YOU WILL RECEIVE A FULL $1.00 FOR EACH AND EVERY PAMPHLET THAT YOU PROCESS! What do we mean by process? It's simple...

FIRST: You will neatly fold the provided preprinted single-sided (8 1/2 by 11 inch) pamphlets into thirds [The pamphlet that you will be processing will be provided to you and will be printed on regular 20 lb. (8-1/2 by 11) inch paper.

SECOND: You will neatly insert the folded pamphlets into the pre-addressed, postage paid envelopes [These envelopes will be sent directly to your home, dorm or apartment with customers' names and addresses already printed on the envelopes along with postage already affixed to the envelopes].

THIRD: Lick and seal these envelopes and then send them out, directly to the customers.


Hello Mr. Services and may your cave collapse,

I'm self-employed, middle-old people. Though I despise your oppressive country deepfully, your spam letter positively caught my eyeballs. Since I, as well, prepare many envelopes presently, I appeal, Mr. Services, to swap some odd tips. Preferredly, I love to learn how to spot stupid spelling and how to powder the paper more splendidly.

Now this other thing to tell. Despite you're repelling fart, the love to terror is evident. I then hand in the capacity of butler down in my bunker. The services are to fold tights, test bombshells and pamper infants. The wages can be standard then degraded. Dental plan, sand beds, hot wind, fond sheep, smallpox for the children!

I should wait when you accept.

Death to most things,
'The Devil' Bin Laden

[A selection of doubly-true anagrams.
Each of these is both an anagram and mathematically correct. A variety of extra functions have been employed in order to mop up certain letters. In most cases, the operators (+, -, X etc.) are the same in subject and 'gram (cf. the first); in others, they form an integral part of the anagram (e.g. 'PI' on one side, and an extra 'plus' on the other to deal with the P). Both degrees and radians have been used to suit individual cases.
For clarity, upper case has been used for the numbers; 'E' should strictly speaking be written as 'e' but for conformity's sake this convention has been ignored.]
