Bogus claims aren't the only tell-tale signs of chain letters. Poor grammar, words mistyped or misspelled, and sightings of the same thing posted or sent with rewordings, inclusions and exclusions abound in memes. This one, claiming to come from Dr. Phil is a good example.
😛🤣Memes: I’m passing this on to you because it definitely
🤣Meme2: worked for me
😛🤣Memes: and we
😛Meme1::: could all
🤣Meme2: all could
😛Meme1::: a little
🤣Meme2: in our lives.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Calmness, or calm, depending on which wording, can hardly be sent or received by chain letter.
😛🤣Memes: By following
😛🤣Memes: simple advice
😛🤣Memes: heard on
😛🤣Memes: Dr. Phil show,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh right, gotta mention Dr. Phil or some other famous person to make people think it's something really profound. Never mind that Dr. Phil has nothing to do with it at all.
🤣Meme2: I have finally found
😛Meme1::: you too can find
😛🤣Memes: inner peace.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No sappy chain letter can give you inner peace. It's only goal is to get circulated, and this one is using the angle "Get yourself and your friends some inner peace and pass it on!"
😛Meme1::: Dr. Phil proclaimed,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Fat chance this came from Dr. Phil.
😛🤣Memes: The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started
😛Meme1::: and have never finished.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Actually no, that's not the way to inner peace. There is no one way to inner peace. It's not a one cure fits all kind of thing.
AS for finishing things, I'll only finish what's worth finishing to me, not everything I started.
😛🤣Memes: So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and had not finished, and before leaving the house this morning,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So let's tackle the list of things you sucked back, or finished, as you call it. Like the rest of this chain letter, there are inconsistencies in the telling.
😛🤣Memes: I finished
😛🤣Memes: a bottle of
😛🤣Memes: a bottle of white zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey’s
😛Meme1::: Irish Cream,
🤣Meme2: a bottle of Kahlua,
😛🤣Memes: a package of Oreos,
😛🤣Memes: the remainder of
🤣Meme2: and Valium prescriptions,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So you sucked all that stuff back and still managed to come up with this lousy chain letter? I'm surprised you could even sit up on your own at this point.
😛🤣Memes: the rest of the cheesecake, some
😛🤣Memes: and a box of chocolates.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: What, you needed something else to wash all those drugs down a little or something?
😛🤣Memes: You have no idea how
😛🤣Memes: good I feel
😛Meme1::: right now.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I doubt you even know at this point. You finished enough potent stuff to give a whale a high and a crash, maybe enough to do yourself a lot of harm with all that booze and drugs, you're now a stoned drunken idiot, hardly a stand-in for Dr. Phil,
Whatever you do, don't go anywhere you'll be a safety hazard and public nuisance! Stay home until all that stuff wears off or until an ambulance shows up if you had the sense to call 911 before writing this drippy chain letter.
😛🤣Memes: Pass this on to those you feel are in need of inner peace.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No. If getting totally plastered out of your mind by mixing booze and drugs which could kill you BTW, is your idea of inner peace, I'll pass! And no, I don't mean "pass it on." If I want inner peace, I'd like to be aware of it...and remember it...
