If you receive an email entitled "Fighting Canaries," delete it immediately. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty.
It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on disks within 20 feet of your computer. It demagnetizes the strips on ALL of your credit cards. It reprograms your ATM access code, screws up the tracking on your VCR and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play.
It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so all your ice cream melts and your milk curdles. It will program your phone autodial to call only your mother-in-law's number. This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank. It will drink all your sodas. It will leave dirty socks on your coffee table when you are expecting company.
Its radioactive emissions will cause your toe jam and bellybutton fuzz (be honest, you have some) to migrate behind your ears. It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine, all while dating your current boy/girlfriend behind your back and billing the rendezvous to your Visa card.
It will cause you to run with scissors and throw things in a way that is only fun until someone loses an eye. It will give you Dutch Elm disease and Tinea.
It will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs to passive tense and incorporating undetectable spelling misspellings which will grossly change the interpretation of key sentences.
If the message is opened in Windows95 environment, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bathtub. It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, but it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.
It will replace all your luncheon meat with Spam. It will molecularly rearrange your cologne or perfume, causing it to smell like dill pickles. It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold.
It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve. These are just a few signs of infection.
I think I must have opened that E-Mail at work last night. That would explain the 8 psych evals, 3 drunks and other multiple strange things that came through the doors last night.
If opened in a Windows98 environnement (like mine) it permanently changes your screen saver for a picture a Martha Stewart and makes your mouse cry when pointing in the left corner of your screen. You've been warned!!
That's a CRACKER!! :D
