I'm a Winner!!!

That's right, yours truly, Earl Fando, is the big winner of 1,000,000 Euros according to Mrs. Comfort Jose, a fictional character living somewhere in a portion of Spain that resembles Nigeria. I know Mrs. Jose is fictional because I happen to know a person with Jose as a last name, and his wife's first name isn't "Comfort." Also, according to the Jose Family Genealogy Forum, there are no Comforts listed at all. There's a Faustine (Faust's daughter perhaps?) and a Haveline (We at DOUI love your motor oil, maam) but no Comfort.

Anyway, I'm a big winner and am already making plans to fund my first motion picture, which will not be based on a Jorge Carlito Vega script, because Danny DeVito won't work with me.

Just see for yourself. I received the following letter in my Inbox recently. I've only posted an excerpt below, because the letter goes on and on like a BBC production of The Mill on the Floss. I did leave quite a bit in, because with Stew and Nuffy not posting this week yet, we need to fill the space.

I knew I was right to choose my lucky numbers 34, 32, 90, 43, and 32. I love number 32 so much that I chose it twice! I'm also very lucky because "this promotional program only takes place once every three year."

They got the part of "Sir/Madam" wrong though, as I've never even considered such surgery. I could never get used to sitting down in the loo so much anyway.

I'm not sure I like the whole deal of promoting Internet Explorer and Microsoft. Don't get me wrong, as I've gotten a fair amount of use out of these products as part of Bill Gates master plan to take over the world (If you don't believe me, visit Redmond sometime. Every person there has been turned into a zombie by implanting a part of Bill Gates soul in them. The zombie part was actually unintentional, but unfortunately Bill just doesn't have a whole lot of personality for a megalomaniac billionaire. BTW, if Bill ever decides to fund the blog I will deny this entirely.) I just don't like seeing such wasteful marketing. For this kind of money they could have bought a Super Bowl or Oscars Ad.

Be sure to sent a letter of thanks to Dr. Sanchez for me. Tell him what a charming bloke he is and how you too would like to win a million Euros for no work and without actually entering a contest or letting the organizers know what sex you are, and without being able to spell "companies" correctly. Ask him if he can travel to America, as I'd like to visit him in Leavenworth.

Anyway, I promise not to let being filthy rich go to my head. I just plan to make the movie. It'll have to be a low budget indie production, because a million Euros is pocket change in the film industry, and because I'll need to hold a bit back for golf, an British/Irish vacation, and that Porterhouse steak I've had my eye on. Oh yes, I'll need to buy that FT-3 driver Stew's been demo-ing.

If he posts a few times tomorrow, I might just let him borrow it.
