Panic Post Email

To: My Panic Everyone List

Subject: FW: Watch out for this spider - Please don't delete.

Dear HFAO friends,

I just got an email, below, on my computer from a life time mate, Bob Spooner, warning me about a new spider infection that is spreading across Australia.

No it is not of the computer variety that crawls over your operating system. It is the biological kind where the spider crawls over your hand and infects you with a bite.

Being a fantastic bloke who cares about others he asked me to pass it on. Can’t be too careful he says with his codicil , “whatever bit that thumb is nasty, even though was probably a hoax email”

The good news is , Yes it is a hoax, But the unscrupulous opportunists who feed of confusion are making money selling fumigation services to little old ladies not worldly enough to spot the incredibility .

Despite the email carrying the hallmark signs of a hoax, Australian Museum experts have taken calls from worried residents across the country who believe they have found one of the spiders in their homes. "People are panicking. One couple had already ordered their house to be fumigated when they called us,'" museum naturalist Martyn Robinson said

The best advice I got when I showed this to a another mate was to keep taking my anti-paranoia pills and have more time enjoy life.

(Hope to catch up soon Bob…)
