In Africa there are cultures we only catch glimpses into through their scam emails. In the classic “dearly beloved” example we learn that they are devoutly Christian and that corruption and sudden regime changes are commonplace their. The following example is poignant in its naked appeal to naive aspirational greed, presented in a language that mixes conspiracy theory, religion and military authority:
This is Army Gen. Lieutenant Duncan (A.K.A ) No attack without solution, From Denver Colorado,l am part of the 12-man Ruling Council on the Earth, An International Security Assistance Force,
I will so glad if will join the Great Brotherhood Enlightenment Kingdom, where you found all kinds of happiness blessing joy in life,There is a great opportunity for you to get what you are seeking for in life,so i would need you to become a member of our Church of Great God Secret Garden Temple and get all you are looking for in life
It goes on to promise money, a car, a house, meetings with celebrities, dream vacations and VIP treatment in all the world’s airports for all who join, but cautions:
the group is not a fan club,a pen pal society,or a lonely heart group, it is a group of dynamic individuals who stand forth as the ultimate underground alternative -the Alien Elite.
While the mail promises that you can join via a local contact, it assures the reader that the only central administration office is Washington , D.C. in the U.S.National Capital Religion (NCR)
What I find sad, though, is that there is some merit to the post-colonial developing nation perspective this mail is appealing to, because the world really is being run by a Christian military superpower, so why can’t Uncle Sam be a good Prester John and give an ambitious African brother a hand?
“Well guess what Diane!” the morning radio DJ says. “May is Money Month here on the Itchy In The Down There show, and you just won $500!”
“Oh my God,” Diane says over the sound effects (farts, Jimmy Walker saying “Dy-No-Mite,” the sound of steel bending in Tower 2). “I’ve never won anything before!”
“How’s it feel?” DJ Itchy asks.
Diane is silent.
“Never,” she whispers, almost inaudible under the sound bite from a Mel Gibson voicemail to his wife. “Not once.”
“I’m 52,” she says. “What rewards? What accomplishments? 52 years, and all I can say I’ve achieved in life is a radio DJ once threw me five hundred bucks. And that’s pure random chance. Not the result of anything I’ve done. Just because you happened to dial a bunch of numbers. My God, I’ve let it all slip away.”
“Hey, it’s not random chance. You had to enter your work phone number on our website to win, right?”
“No,” Diane says. “No, I didn’t do that. I’m just temping at this desk.”
“Oh,” DJ Itchy says. “Oh God.”
“Oh God!” Diane sobs. “I didn’t win, did I?”
“Diane!” DJ Itchy says. “Diane don’t hang up!”
Diane disconnects the call midway through a sob.
Unsure what to do, because what can he do, DJ Itchy slowly presses a control board button and plays the sound clip from ‘Terms of Endearment’ where Shirley MacLaine is crying and repeating “I’m so stupid! I’m so stupid!” just after Debra Winger dies.
Happy Diane’s Never Won Anything Before Day!
You put your hand on the freezer door to get the fish sticks he used to buy.
You never ate them before he came into your life. You used to assume such foods were gross.
But he kept demanding them, he loved them so. He made you think if he had to choose between you and the fish sticks you would be the one he’d happily let go.
“You’d be the one I’d happily let go,” he’d joke.
Then the two of you would take turns taking bites obliterating the length of a fish stick.
Your hand is on the freezer door to grab those fish sticks, a box of the fish sticks he used to buy.
Just because he’s gone back to his ex-boyfriend doesn’t mean that freezer door is locked to you forever.
He opened it for you.
This is what lovers do.
They open doors.
Even when the only thing on the other side is some frozen fish sticks.
The doors stay open. Everything on the other side is yours to keep.
He gave those fish sticks to you, he brought them into your life. He took away his heart, the fish sticks are yours to keep.
Happy In The Supermarket Day!
