Unchain my heart

As a dog, I'm not a big fan of chains. While I've never been chained up to a tree or even tied by any means to an immovable object (unless you count my being on a leash held by an out-of-shape Stew), I still cringe at the site of a dog being restrained by any means. I extend my disdain for chains to chain emails, which typically consist of a message that attempts to induce the recipient to pass along a copy of the email to as many other gullible people as possible. Common methods used in chain emails include emotionally manipulative stories, get-rich-quick schemes, or the exploitation of superstition to threaten the recipient with bad luck or even physical violence or death if he/she "breaks the chain" and refuses to adhere to the conditions set out in the email. Such as, "If you don't forward this email that proves Obama is a Muslim/terrorist/elitist/radical/socialist/foreigner [insert the latest Right Wing anti-Obama talking point here], then puppies will die!"

Well, following is a chain email I received from Stew's Aunt Almita. It's the kind that includes an emotionally manipulative message, and I'm buying it hook, line and sinker! In fact, I think it's an awesome email, and I encourage everyone to do as directed. Read it below, and if you don't adhere to the conditions set out within the message, then puppies WILL surely die. Don't be a puppy killer!

This is pretty simple... Please tell ten friends to each tell a further ten today!

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute (about 15 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box "Fund food for animals for FREE".

This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site! Please pass it along to people you know.

About This Blog
