Reader, I Can't Marry You

How sweet, a commenter on my Rule #16 post has proposed to me!

Will you marry me (If you're hot)? :) I'm your age with the same net worth, we can let our net worth multiply like horny rabbits! Yes?
Sorry, Anonymous. Though I'm EXTREMELY hot, I'm afraid I can't take you up on your offer of marital and financial bliss. I have just promised myself to a very nice man in Ghana that I met online, who is about to come into a very large sum of money. I've already sent him all my bank account details so he could arrange our marriage license at the registry in Accra and have half his inheritance immediately deposited in my name-- I know, sounds a bit odd, but they're so charmingly old-fashioned about the dowry thing in Ghana! He even wanted my Dad's bank account details so he could send him some money too! So although I'm sure you and your net worth are very nice, Anonymous, it's really too late for me to back out. Any day now, my hubby-to-be will be emailing me my flight arrangements to come and meet him for the wedding ceremony. In fact I thought I already would have heard from him by now, but I guess they have a lot of internet outages over there in Ghana, you know how it is...

Did you send hubby-to-be your social security number too? You DO know that's required to finalize the ceremony details. No idea why though. *shrug*

HA HA HA

You are so damn fabulous!! Have a GREAT weekend sis!

I also know a kind businessman from Ghana, is it possible that you are marrying the same man? Oh what a small world we live in! He is a bank director and had an urgent business proposition for me that i just couldn't pass up! I sent him my bank details also and I'm waiting for him to get back to me. 20 million dollars, whoopee! This will show my b-school classmates who the real financial pimp daddy is now. Mr. Otumba and I are going to be rich, what a kind man he was just emailing me out of the blue with such a surefire business plan! I guess people on that side of the world are just nicer. I am very disappointed that our fortunes could not hump like rabbits, however. Perhaps we could set our fortunes aside and we ourselves could just hump like rabbits?

Oh, you and your rich-ass foreign husbands. I just won 500,000 pounds sterling in the FREE LOTTERY ONLINE PROMO PROGRAMME. That's a million bucks! They just need my name, address, phone number occupation, and nationality.

I am adviced to forward these informations as soon as possible to enable them to attend to my file. After I have sent down these informations, This is to be proof of winning from that office to the security firm before they release my funds. I am adviced to keep my winning numbers secret to avoid unscripulous elements from taking advantage of the situation.

Wow! All that and I don't even remember entering the contest!

LOL --- girl you are hilarious! I cannot stop laughing...

Ok, now I'm jealous. I look around me and compare myself to others, and I see Madame X getting marriage proposals on her blog--- but am I?

Noooooo.

ah, the many fortunes that are befalling us, all from Ghana! Like you guys, I've won a sizable amount of money from a worldwide sweepstakes!

I have already booked air travel tickets to Ghana, and will be bringing with me $9,000 in cash to pay for the expenses in transferring the winnings. Plus, I get to meet, nice, friendly, non-beating-up-strangers-and-take-their-money people!

LOL, is Ghana the new place to be? I still remember the Nigerian letters my dad would get from the 80s. And yet, although these scams have been around for decades, people, professionally successful, educated people, fall for them. A Cayman Island lawyer I worked with said that once, some guy flew all the way to the Cayman Islands, requested a confidential meeting with the lawyer, and pulled out a classic Nigerian scam letter. The lawyer then opened his drawer, pulled out a handful of similar scam letters and showed them to the crestfallen guy.

Bitty-
Perhaps if Madame X never gets off her high net worth horse and accepts my proposition, you and I may let our net worths and our bodies hump like rabbits. However cute your little Molly may be, there seems to be a hairy man in the photo as well that may prove to be an obstacle in our humping endeavors.

Where are you and Mr. Ghana registered?

I love the disclaimer (if you're hot). I may consider marrying you if you're not hot only because you have your finances in order. That's key!
Maybe we can run off to VT or somewhere where it's legal. /sarcasm

Dang. My blog's been open twelve whole days and no one's proposed to me yet.

Derek said...

You can't marry him anyway. If you check, I proposed to you in a different thread at least 3 months ago. So, I'm first in line.

My husband is jealous of your suitor working the phrase "horny rabbits" into his proposal... he wishes he'd only been so creative in his proposal.
