'Guinness Book of Records' Chain Letter

Forwarded by Sung Chung and others...

Forwarded Message:
Subj: in the year 1999

If we keep this going until September 9th, 1999 (9-9-99), I PROMISE YOU that everyone's name who this was sent to will be in the Guinness Book of Records. I HAVE PROOF! I E-MAILED THEM & TOLD THEM I WOULD START ONE & THEY SAID THEY'D SAVE A SPOT FOR US IN THE 2000 Special addition!

So, if we keep this going...We'll all be a part of the book!

So please, have some heart and send this to a few people. It would really be nice. You get something out of it too! So, send this right now!

Thanks very much!

Guide's note:  Okay, here I go being the spoilsport again. Folks, getting into the Guinness Book of World Records isn't as easy as making a phone call and asking them to set aside a spot for you. Besides, how many names do suppose they'd be willing to print? This chain letter will have been forwarded by a million people or more by the time September 9 rolls around! Lastly, there's a technical problem to ponder: who's keeping track of all these names, and how?

If someone has forwarded you this message, write them back and tell them to think before they click next time.
