"This one's actually from my right wing grandpa.Caroline, I feel that sharp pain too. Ugly forwards like this make me wonder if I should even post them. Enter daylight:
As a Star Trek fan and a liberal, I was pained.
My grandmother asked me if I enjoyed all the forwards she and my
grandfather send. (She usually sends the plain old glurge and urban
legends; he sends the right-wing ones.) I said I honestly didn't have
time to read them, and if she wanted to take me off the list, that was
okay with me and I wouldn't be offended. (Oh please oh please!)
Guess she didn't remember." - Caroline
