We are WRITHING to know

I got such a chuckle out of this message I had to share it. There is a whole new field opening up of how to handle people’s online presence after death (for example this Mashable post), however I would bet that sending the type of message below isn’t considered one of the acceptable methods.

are you DEAD email message

Email text:

Attn:

we are writhing to know if it’s true that you are DEAD? Because we received a notification from one MR.GERSHON SHAPIRO of USA stating that you are DEAD and that you have giving him the authority to claim your funds as your next of kin.

Regards,

Mrs.Farida Waziri

What do I love about this message? Besides the bluntness of the text (“you are DEAD?”), I love that the writer is “writhing.” Who knows, maybe the thought of my death put the writer into a lot of pain.
