Dear sir: We have no wood.

I received the following fax today at work. It says on the first line that I'm allowed to publish it, free of charge.

So I will.

Because it made me laugh.*

The Wood Heat Policy Institute

To the Editor: This article is written by John Gulland, Director of the Wood Heat Policy Institute.It is available for publication, free of charge. The Wood Heat Policy Institute supports the public interest in wood heating and advocates for the responsible use of this important renewable energy resource... (it got boring after that)

Heating With Wood Makes Families And Communities Richer

Chainsaws buzz and log splitters chg as people prepare next winter's firewood. Neighbours get together, sharing truckloads of logs adn the cutting and splitting into firewood. Its hard work but it is fun too and there are smiles all around. The neighbours might een sit down with a beverage when the work is done and agree about how much money they save.

Okay, well it goes on for a couple more hundred words. But you get the idea. 

No one can blame these guys for not going after the hard-converts. Keep it up Gulland (and HOW did you get our fax number?!?!)

*Not because it was poorly written, but because it found us SOMEHOW in the most non-wood-heating place in the WORLD. Haha.

LOL, I totally got this one at work today too, along with one from an Italian pop singer and lots of junk mail regarding penis enlargements. Like, does that kind of advertising ever actually work?
