I received the following email today:


hey pretty

My name is joe if you like calling me. Im from island newyork,I live in the US. I'm a tall, tactile and hugable fellow with lots of good qualites,( non smoker) hardworking, studious, adventureous,and love to travel. I am a general contractor in a computer engineering company with a wonderful career and business owner But I also like to stay home sometimes and enjoy the warmth of a fire with someone pretty at my side.(It's never truly fun alone) I'm active,and enjoy nature-digging in my garden, on a paddle boat, cycling on salt marsh, an afternoon walk or picnic. I enjoy to go skiing, cross country or downhill, what ever you pleasure. If your afraid I'll calm your fears and show you how ( I'm a good skier). Sometimes I'd like to take you to a concert (I was once a musican (played piano) both classic and modern. I also love the sea, the smell of salt air and live not far from the ocean. I like children, but I have one son ( 15 yrs ). I was a soccer coach! ...... I'm seeking an attractive woman who appreciates a white man and who might still wish to start a family?(or add on to what she has) Some one to share time with to cherish and Enjoy. If she can cook or make a sweet desert, she has my vote. If not perhaps we could bake some fruit pies together? Tell me your secret thoughts and wishes and I'll listen hard...and help you wash the evenings dishes! Please write me won't you, I would like hear from you . I should also mention that I am looking for someone who wants a commitment and not just a "night on the town". I am looking for a woman who is honest, patient, and unselfish. Someone who loves to get away and live life to its fullest. I will respond to any and all replies, so feel free to type away :) I am a simple man who is looking for the same thing in life as everyone else, Happiness. I love to travel and do it quite extensively with my work.

Me thinks Joe has very strong muscles in his right arm and hand.
Yikes!

FLAMINGO1 said...

Me thinks joe has a set of binoculors and a cargo van with a mattress in the back.

The Phoenix said...

Talk about psychotic. I wonder if any of this is true, or the voices in his head told him what to type.

Shadiva said...

I don't trust a man that wants to bake fruit pies with me...

karen rani - that is unless he's left handed :- )
Me thinks he's not as white as he thinks based on his writing I would guess he's from another land; not as exotic as one would like. However, help with the evening dishes would be plus +

PDD said...

Me thinks me want to get hold of Joe's email address. Seriously, I'd love to drop him a note.

I will wait patiently for the email address.

Karen Rani said...

Me thinks everyone should stop saying me thinks....ha ha...

I like flamingo's answer best - you're right on the money!

Yak said...

Methinks Joe is actually Mahir, the Turkish love-monkey.

Christopher55 said...

We should stop picking on joe. He's probably a future Senator or Cabinet member.

FLAMINGO1 said...

He's probably a current Senator or Cabinet Member...or president.

PDD said...

... Or priest...

Erin O'Brien said...

People, this was a verbatim cut and paste. The only thing I changed was the name.

FLAMINGO1 said...

Any interest in setting up a meeting with joe? I think we are all curious about what joe is all about. Perhaps take that trusty camera along so that we can get some pictures.

although joe has potential psycho-stalker properties in his writing style, so perhaps that is not the best idea.

PDD said...

I'm still waiting... patiently...

Erin O'Brien said...

Sorry, PDD, I will happily share the Flamingo with you, but this one is ALL MINE.

jungle jane said...

i'll go a round with joe. he'll like me - i've been told in the past that i have a sweet pie. oath.

Stephanie Powers said...

Look ladies, if I had to profile this guy, I'd say: 43, living in his parents basement next to the Kenmore W&D, probably Passeic "island, newyork", general sanitation contractor for a sanitary engineering company, sits at home watching re-runs of Hart to Hart and That 70s Show, just learned how to email. "I like children, but I have one..." Analyze that! Yeah, sure buddy, I'll date you.

Stephanie Powers said...

P.S. Bet he's balding with toomuch back hair.

nicole said...

Something tells me he owns one of these...

FLAMINGO1 said...

Stephanie Powers thinks she has the edge because he watches Hart to Hart (she wishes!). At the moment, I think Erin has the "Joe" market cornered and the rest of you ladies are just going to have to wait to pick up Erin's scraps.
