It's not Art...but I HAVE to share it with you...

Every now and again, an e-mail comes across your screen and makes you laugh until your co-workers start to wonder what you're sniffing.  This happened to me when I was working at Sun Microsystems (when they were still an infant company) and THIS missive made me tinkle in my panti-hose....

I am pleased to resurrect it for you.   Ten Jew Berry Mud.
This is a telephone exchange between a hotel guest and room-service at a hotel in Asia.
