At least they used "you're" and not "your"
Sadly the Ferns-Bunting Miss State letters seem like frauds
the second one is photoshopped - take a close look at the lettering.
Fern's letter is real though, AFAIK
You are an idiot...
He am not smrt
You mean "Your an idiot"
The second one looks like a photoshop of the first. Everything is literally identical except for the text. My bet is the first was real (or at least really written), and the second a photoshop.
Hold on - you really thought the second one was real? You've been had all right.
Isn't the Bunting letter an intentional joke?
I've got to neg you, son
I can't believe you thought the one to bunting was real. Are you Manti Te'o?
Lulz at you thinking the "You're Tall" letter was legit.
but but trapper keepers!
Not ancient aliens, but this guy always smiles when he talks about the destruction of Earth. Gets me everytime.
This picture always makes me happy. Aliens dude is funny.
I don't know what's worse, missing the fact that the second one was a joke, or assuming that two of our recruits just decided to make some shit up.
Guys - I did some internet research of my own, and it turns out the polar bear in the Alaska Fairbanks videos DOES NOT actually fly through outerspace or shoot actual lazers into team logos. It turns out it would have to be an enormous coincidence to be able to fly through space while also being an arctic mammal.
I cracked the case guys!
NOOOOOOOO...that just CAN'T be true. I had planned to do my Ph.D. on space bear studies. I had buisness cards made up and everything.
"It's still real to me, dammit!"
My cursory glance was moreso than I thought. Carry on.
We don't KNOW that the Bunting fax is a fake. Ferns and Bunting might have the same fax machine, because THEY'RE THE SAME PERSON! Have you ever seen them in a room together? Huh?
This is the Michigan Difference--a critical mind.
Since neither trapper keeper is a Lisa Frank, I think they're both fake.
Richard David James (Aphex Twin) doesn't really have double D's?!?!?
This thread is D-U-M Dum
Radio: That plate belongs to the local Spurbury Police!
Unit 91: It does?!? OH MY GOD!!!
Radio: Very funny Unit 91....
Unit 91: Thank you radio.
BREAKING NEWS: Lloyd Brady has not actually been in all these famous places:
Well then Lloyd Brady is a phony. A big, fat phony.
Erroneous! Erroneous! Erroneous on both accounts!
This must be especially difficult news for you to handle.
But I love this thread. So there's that.
Also, in the OP's defense, his sleuthing didn't lead to the disastrous consequences of Reddit's crimefighting, so he's A-OK in my book.
OP has a raging clue.
I couldn't think of any reason someone could possibly misconstrue what happened with those letters.... then I looked at my name.
I have a friend from Ghana. He's actually a Sultan or something over there. He's trying to leave the country but he needs YOUR help! If you send me $500, this will trigger a release of his funds to you in the amount of $1,000,000. Kindly respond with your email and I'll pass it on. (Don't want others to know how to do this)
several months ago...It's great we've found you!!!! Could you put us in touch with him? He seems to have forgotton about sending us our $Meeeeellion.
It's amazing that some people take advantage of people of the kindness of others. Now my friend looks bad becuase of your bad experience.
After further further examination, this is not a fraud. In addition to t-shirts, Ferns also sends out floor, desk and trapper keeper textures to recruits when they commit.
have a winner!
One of the most embarrassing aspects of this is that the entirety of my career can be distilled down to being patient about conclusions, skeptical of my mind, and diligent in seeking alternative explanations. At least it's Friday.
what sort of public self flagellation you'll need to employ to atone for this mess.
So we're 42 replies in, and does anybody know what trapper keeper textures are?
Great point OP!
... The second letter is an obvious quick and dirty photoshop... I thought it was pretty funny when I saw it.
so NOW you tell us!
I am Wumi Abdul; the only Daughter of late Mr and Mrs George Abdul. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan,the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discus on a business deal. When my mother died on the 21st October 1984, my father took me and my younger brother HASSAN special because we are motherless. Before the death of my father on 30th June 2002 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $12.500.000 left in a suspense account in a local Bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name as his first Daughter for the next of kin in deposit of the fund.

2) To serve as the guardian of this since I am a girl of 26 years.
Moreover Sir, we are willing to offer you 15% of the sum as compensation for effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your designate account overseas.
Anticipating to hear from you soon.
Thanks and God Bless.

I'm afraid my kids just won't let go of the Santa thing unless someone can persuasively explain to them that he's not real, and I think I've found the guy who can do it.
WHAT?! Santa's not real?! You monster!!!
