Default New Taliban Virus

I don't normally pass this sort of stuff around but I thought this one was pretty funny.......

============= Taliban Virus ==============

Dear Receiver...

You have just received a Taliban virus. Since we are not so technologically advanced in Afghanistan, this is a MANUAL virus.
Please delete all the files on your hard disk yourself and send this mail to everyone you know.

Thank you very much for helping me.

Abdullah
Taliban Hacker

Sorry about that Czar. That's the trouble with these things. Half the world wont find it funny and the other half have already seen it before.

I've seen the same thing, too, only it was called the Amish Virus.



It is funny how things change.

This a similar type that I received. Here is the 'original'?

The media haven't got the details yet, but I have it on good authority that in the weekend raids by the Federal Police they caught three aboriginal terrorists, Bin Smokin and Bin Drinkin and Bin Stealin.
Whilst they have been taken into custody a fourth terrorist, Bin Workin, could not be found

The next one, the aboriginal had been taken out and replaced with Australia. Then it was Newfoundland, then Washington, then NASA. That is in the space of about three weeks. No doubt I will get a heap more yet

<edit> just got another version, this is 'set' in your work place, but now there are 5 of them! Bin Whinin has been added. </edit>
