From the moment the first Homo Sapiens descended from the trees, possibly onto their heads, humanity has striven towards civilisation. Fire. The Wheel. Running Away from furry things with big teeth and, after a great deal of time, coming back and bravely nuking their descendants from orbit, are all testament to man's ultimate ascendancy. It is a noble story, a triumph of intelligence over adversity and, of course, completely and utterly wrong. For one man believes he has discovered the hideous truth: that every great civilisation in history has, rather embarrassingly, been founded, run and then cunningly manipulated by a small gang of devious frogs.

YOUVE GOT MAIL.. Its a daily task of going through our e-mails- reading, forwarding, and deleting .. and then we wished we had saved that joke or story; be it spiritual and heartwarming, a tear jerker, a funny joke or story you about wet yourself over, informative, political, or maybe even one those little naughty ones - whatever they may be - we regret deleting them. I have attempted to recollect (with the assistance of my family and friends) some of those favorites to hold on to and hopefully bring back that smile or chuckle. So .happy reading as YOUVE GOT MAIL..again!
