1st - Meyran Kraus with:
The Mother of a 15 year old boy was cleaning and putting laundry away when she came across a large brown paper bag that was suspiciously buried beneath some clothes and a skateboard in the back of her 15-year-old son's closet. Nothing could have prepared her for the shock she got when she opened the bag and found it was full of cash; five dollar bills, twenties, fifties and hundreds - all neatly rubber-banded in labeled piles.

"My first thought was that he had robbed a bank," says the 41-year-old woman, "There was over $71,000 dollars in that bag\'85.. that's more than my husband earns in a year." The woman immediately called her husband at the car dealership where he worked to tell him what she'd discovered. He came home right away and they drove together to the boy's school and picked him up. Little did they suspect that where the money came from was more shocking than actually finding it in the closet.

As it turns out, the boy had been sending out via E-mail on the Internet a type of 'chain-letter' to E-mail addresses that he got off of the Internet. Everyday after school for the past 2 months, he had been doing this right on his computer in his bedroom.


Two days later the parents recovered another bag labelled "Hot Chicks Get Hosed By Old Guys", with cheap photos and bootleg tapes. "Ah, Bobby's an adult!" his mother grinned, while his father reacted, "That's true, he's mature now. We all have fantasies, like, oh, deep anal fun with Thatcher."

The caring parents still defended him when he hacked into the phone company's mainframe and then into four city banks. "Well, calling him 'charlatan' or 'corruptive' is a bit harsh," the boy's mother remarked, "Nobody's perfect. He's no Unabomber... yet." "Oh, he's obviously grown up," his dad deduced, "Learning a vocation is a significant thing. He promised us he'd get off his butt and 'make money' and he sure did, down in his basement. Those notes were perfect, utterly identical to five and twenty dollar bills! What a craftsman."

After the boy ran an illegal pyramid scheme, a sour mob stormed the house. "Oh, what a lovely boy!" the mother was heard yelling in the riot as the angry mob smashed the front door, "Hundreds of fans line up to see him! What a great lad!!!" "Hey, at least he has a good taste," added the boy's dad as they were about to be lynched, "After all, those chicks *were* hot!"

David Bourke with:
Everyone at school knows I love to swallow as much cum as I can. One night at a party the guys from the football, basketball, baseball, and hockey teams bet me that I couldn't suck off every guy on their teams. I took them up on their bet, the guys all lined up, and I sucked off everyone of them, and swallowed all of their hot, thick loads!!! I saved the last hundred guys cum in a pitcher, then downed the whole pitcher in front of them all, to show them all who is the best cock sucker at our school!!! I loved it. Now we plan to make this a weekly event at school. Here are some pics to show you how much fun I had.

Lots of loads and love,


Oh look, half the business knows how I love to swig as much cum as I can, OK? However, at last night's concert ovation, all the guys in the band bet me that I couldn't hoover every last drop of spunk out of their most heavenly hard-ons. I was somewhat shocked, but, ah well, one couldn't refuse an offer like that, could one? I had soon lined them up, bollock-naked, by the drum riser area, removed my wig, and performed fellatio on them all. I swallowed all the hot cum that they shot until, awash, I was emptied out at the local hospital, who also cleaned sticky bits of yucky, cheesy cock-chaff out of the gaps between my teeth.

Angram research

Single-Letter Retrieval Cues for Anagram Solution. (Statistical Data Included) KENNETH L. WITTE; JOEL S. FREUND.

Full Text: COPYRIGHT 2001 Heldref Publications

ABSTRACT. Anagram solution, as related to single-letter retrieval cues and first letter of the solution word (consonant or vowel), was examined. In Experiment 1, college-aged solvers were presented both types of 5-letter words and either the first letter of the solution word as a cue, or no cue. In Experiment 2, the effects of four types of retrieval cues (first, middle, or last letter or no cue) upon solving consonant-beginning words was examined. Finally, Experiment 3 examined the solution of both types of solution words as related to the preceding four types of retrieval cues. The results of all 3 experiments showed that a single letter can be an effective cue. For consonant-beginning words, the middle and last letters were as effective as the first letter. For vowel-beginning words, the first letter was more effective than either the middle or last letter. It was concluded that solvers select one letter of the anagram, typically a consonant, to serve as the first letter of the solution word, and then rear range the remaining letters.


I don't believe it!

We went to the trouble of doing this exciting postdoctoral research on anagrams, then when we sent it to alt.anagrams, I spelt the most important title word (anagram) wrong! A horrendous typo! How embarrassing!

Except the little regretful error, I still felt that the devotees of alt.anagrams would find it an exceptional article and, in effect, a good learning experience. I'm eager to read everyone's opinions. Feel free to tell us:

Larry Brash: "Now, which of you useless overeducated college idiots wrote this moronic stuff?"
David Bourke: "Well, it'll need a ton of effing rude ones. None? Then shove off, fat tosser!"
Richard Grantham: "Utter nonsense! Results of the all tests contain errors."
Walter Newboldt: "i felt its terrific wonderful clever droll stuff except i fell asleep reading it. Still need volunteers?"
Dan Fortier: "It's rotten, total crap, feces, etc. etc. etc."
Janet Burholt: "An extreme time waster. Never send any further ones of these."
Ernesto Guiraldes: "It's academic claptrap. The worst test I've seen; no contest."
D.A. Green: "Some ass fondler gave a grant to study this over-rated excrement?"
M. Tully: "It's awful senseless shit! Expect very little talent there!"
O. bin Laden: "Suffer, troll! 135,223,001 curses on the infidel!"

Paul Equinox Collins with:
Carnforth Station Trust's plans to turn the historic steam train which featured as the Hogwarts Express in Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone into a permanent tourist attraction have been halted by Warner Bros, the studio behind the film. Peter Yates has revealed to the BBC that he, "Rang Warner Bros and suggested using the Potter train and renaming the platform 9 3/4," but they, "immediately said, 'No, if you try and use it in any way we'll sue you.'"
"Touch that train and prepare for legal action, for it's ours!" snapped Anna, a nasty, litigious US exec. "We doubt that any nerdy little British trainspotter museum would be able to spend more on a court case than one of the planet's mightiest studios."
"Besides, we need that train. Every trendy shit-brat must be aware that Harry Two, Harry Three, and Harry Nth - that's 'The Nth Shitty Harry Movie' - are being filmed right now.
