My Application for Shola

If you are new to this story click here first. I think that this is about the sixth in the series. Not sure because I am not really counting.

Shola sent me a new email. Here is what it said:
Dear Jack
Good morning ,You can use any Bank of your choice
that you that is trusted,
Please confirm if you received my international
Passport I sent to you yesterday,
Here is my reply

Dear Shola,

I apologize for the delayed response but I have been having extreme computer problems. I spent many hours checking into these matters and had to employ the esteemed computer technician Scooby Doo to investigate what was causing this issue.

I was told that it was a computer virus and it was suggested that it was received when I opened your note with your passport. This upset me greatly and I considered ending our relationship.

However as you may remember I am a follower and true believer of the Church of The TreeFrog and hold the position of Bishop of BullFrog. As a holy man I do not make hasty decisions. I held a meeting with the holy croaker circle (see attached picture) and even consulted his highness the most holy High Jumper (see picture) and have decided to give you a second chance.

To that end I am attaching a copy of the application that I am sending to the bank so that you are kept in the loop regarding all
important decisions.

I look forward to sharing the money with you and wish you a hopping good day.

Croakingly yours,


This is a copy of the application I submitted. Or should I say here are the answers to the application Shola sent me.

Shola is really persistent! I sort of admire that. Do you think he takes monopoly money? I'm almost thinking I might send him a little somethin-somethin to ease his pain when you finally let him down...

then again, maybe he's persistent because there really are millions of dollars at stake and soon you'll be rich! rich! rich!!!

All of this reminds me of how each Twilight Zone episode totally throws you for a spin at the end.

Can you -- just for a second now -- imagine "shola" with all of HIS blogfriends laughing hysterically when Jack sends each response!

This is totally awesome.

I was just going through my archive and I saw that you were the second person to ever post on my blog. That was almost a year ago. Just drop by to say thanks.

I am going to be so rich I'll be able to start my own seamonkey farm.


I might.


It is kind of a funny thought, to think about them laughing at me.




Finally someone recognizes the address.


My pleasure.

Jack Steiner said...


Yep, the view is nice.

Jack, when you get all this dough, please be aware that I am starting a new time sharing project on an island just of Madagascar coast. I have too many investor eager to take part, but since I know about you, you can count on a piece of that deal.

I am currently working on the design of a swimming pool for toddlers and senior citizenry, so any ideas will be welcome.

I can't believe he wrote back to that as if it was real. Too funny.

Jack Steiner said...


I'll keep you posted.


This guy is nothing if not persistent.

Regina said...

Wow- are you serious about the virus, Jack? Arrgghhh... good on you to keep stringing him along- he'll deserve everything he gets- which is nothing!

Anonymous said...
