DECEPTION?

I love it when I'm tootling around in Sploofus and that little yellow message appears that says I have mail. "Who could it be?" I quiver with anticipation. My mouse pointer slides up and hovers over the words in yellow, my heart starts to race. I click and just to prolong my agony, the page slowly takes its time loading (stupid computer is getting catapulted later in the week). Beads of sweat begin to form on my brow. My stomach turns to butterflies. "WHO COULD IT BE????"

"Congratulations, you're a WP Winner." I've never hated the WP more. But wait, it says I'm a winner. NO WAY! I won? I didn't think I did that well. Maybe I didn't do well but I won WP Miss Congeniality or maybe I won the Physical Fitness portion. So I foolishly click on the message. Number 85 is a winner? Gosh, that's so deceiving. No. 85 is not a "winner."

So what the email notice should say is "Congratulations, you're a WP Participant."

Disappointed on so many levels.

And the lonely call of the loon was heard across the still morning.

The system must LIKE you. I get "Word Puzzle Also-Ran", "Word Puzzle Idiot" and "Word Puzzle LOOOOOOSER" messages almost daily. Not to mention the occasional "You Did So Badly, I'm Going To Charge You An Extra 3 Moves Out Of Spite".

Seriously, I think Justin must have contracted his WP emails out to the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation.

More seriously, I guess we're technically winners of a handful of Valuable Bonus Points regardless...

PS: You can always drag the cursor over the message title, get the important part, and be able to discard the message without ever actually opening it.

My email would most likely tell me to not even try them, because I suck at just about all of them!

It doesn't say 'Winner' Lodi, it says 'Whiner'.
