Why? Why do people do this? Do they actually think Lulu is going to get them, or do they think it is fun to start such a chain letter?

My money's on number two. Just because I really can't see anybody actually thinking someone's going to kill them if they don't. But then, how many kids would never say 'bloody mary' into a mirror "just in case"? And how many kids have internet access now?

I saw the "African girl" one in the commentary to a Beavis and Butt-head episode clip this morning. Thought it was weird. Sweet mother of Rayquaza, is there anyplace that chain message senders won't deface?

I saw Kahlua-whatever kick my dog. I yelled at her and she ran away. If I ever see her again, I'll give her a good boot in her LATUALATUKA.

Damn undead juvenile delinquent.
