    WARNING: About Tick Warnings - -

    TICK WARNING!

    I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, and I have even done it myself a couple times unintentionally, but this one is real, and it's important.
    Please send this warning to everyone on your e- mail list.

    If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want to see you naked.

    I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

    We had a tick warning at work. It was forwarded to the entire building.

    Now that was ugly.

    The Foolian calendar does lag a bit. Hey, have you guys seen this?

    How do you know that when you heard it 8 months ago - it wasn't already 8 months behind? Ive heard this tick warning several times, the first time maybe 2 years ago.

    But a chuckle is a chuckle, no matter how you come by it. Its the spirit of the thing you gotta grasp....
