Off topic: I just discovered Postcards from Yo Momma

Postcards from Yo Momma: “Does your mom still have an AOL account? Does she email you her random, yet charming, thoughts on life and love?” E-mail from people who don’t know anything about e-mail. Excerpts:

“face book
tell me about face book. do you have a page on it? can anyone look at your page? I am worried about this type of thing.”

“Look who finally learned the computer. Dad set me up email ACCOUNT AND ALSO SHOWED ME HOW TO GO ONLINE.I DON’T KNOW WHY EVERYTHING IS SUDDENLY WRITING BIG LIKE THIS, SO JUST IGNORE IT. SO HOW WAS THE CONCERT YOU WENT TO WITH FRIENDS/ CALL ME SOON. THIS WRITING IS WEIRD SORRY, LOVE MOM.”
