Goats, lotteries and the Reverend father

I don’t usually highlight my e-mail spam, but this was so priceless, I just had to. So much wrong here:

  1. Guinness is running its "Online Lottery" out of a PO box in Killorglin. I’ve seen Killorglin. It’s best known for a goat being annually named King of Ireland. Seriously.
  2. And apparently now the payment representative is working out of the UK (+44) with a Hotmail account. Who have thunk it?
  3. And the general manager of the notification department is a Reverend. As in priest.

These people aren’t even trying anymore. Full text below the fold.
