    There is this one credit card company here in Montreal (the name isn't important, and besides, why would I give these bozos free publicity) that keeps mailing me a credit card application. And every time I get the "invite," I reply with a creative note on the envelope saying something like...

      return to sender: addressee deceased after being attacked by large gerbils and used as ink blotter fodder


      return to sender: addressee had a sex change, moved to Northern California and opened a health food store


      return to sender: addressee deceased after tricycle accident and was subsequently trodden over by a band of wild elephants, and now resides in the National Gallery as a really cool wall hanging.

    And yet, I still get this crap in the mail. Trouble is that I still don't know whether they keep sending because they haven't gotten the hint, or they just want to see what I'll write next.

    Enough fun. Back to work.
