Captain Ed writes a nice post pertaining to a column by Christopher Hayes who’s only recently discovered that there is a lot of rumors that travel the internet. Hello.
As the Capn notes, if spreading this column introduces more people to www.snopes.com, then spread the column!
Rules #1. Before forwarding anything, check it out on snopes!
Rule #2. Never forward anything that comes with a threat. (ie ‘If you don’t forward this on, you’ll have bad luck for a year’, or ‘If you don’t forward this back to me, I’ll know we’re not friends’)
Rule #3. Only forward the good jokes, no ALL the jokes!
