memo: don't sweat paying your bills

Just thought you would like to know that the world is supposed to end tomorrow.

Yisrayl Hawkins, cult-leader of the House of Yahweh cult in Texas, said that nuclear holocost will come sometime on June 12.

Hawkins has predicted this before, but apparently this time he really, really means it.

Fortunately, if you want to be spared, there is something you can do: immediately fly to Texas and live on Hawkin's compound. If you are a woman, you will need to marry him. If you are a man, worshiping him will do just fine.

Hawkins denies that he is the leader of a religious cult. According to him, "I don't control their mind in a witch-like fashion... I merely teach the laws to them."

Hawkins apparently already has a couple dozen wives. He is currently facing polygamy charges. Good thing he doesn't have to worry about the charges, since the world will be gone (except for his compound, of course).

Oh maaaan, this is just too outrageous. You gotta love it. I just told an online friend of mine, Robert Stevenson, about your site. He also posts the real and ridiculous like you do. You might enjoy his site as well. It's called ROB'S MEGAPHONE. He is a journalism professor and also a kind and very funny guy. His site is at: http://robertstevenson.wordpress.com/ He too is a member of BlogCatalog.com He just posted some reallly outrageous news clippings that I think you will enjoy.

Hope you and Maine are doing well as you move into slightly warmer weather. Are the blackflies still with you??? LOL LOL See, I can laugh my face off because I now live in New Mexico that is so dry that blackflies would turn to dust in 2 seconds! I love it. BUT...I must confess I miss the green and all the water (wata). Miss it somethin' fierce. Wicked fierce! LOL LOL LOL

Thanks,
