Email Says I'm Daid
This email wasn't one of them.
Here's how I initially received the email in late October:

I didn't get around to replying to it straight away, and subsequently three days later -- one day after October 23 -- I received the same email, with big red letters saying "CANCELLED" at the top.
Hecky darn poo. I died. Fancy that.
Well, I know in the eyes of a long time dear friend that's apparently true, but that's a sadder matter.
So I decided to use that small, medium or large from across the Astral Bridge, and answer him anyway, cancelled or not.
It's only good manners, of corpse:
Let me get down to the specifics of this cancellation. This h'yar sez that two Canadians have listed me as daid. And they have the document to prove it.
In an aside, in the eyes of a long time dear friend it is apparently true that I am that; so I reckon it's true.
I'm daid. Deader than a can of corned beef.
That's pretty forking daid. Count on it.
So how am I replying to you, says you to yourself, though not too loudly because they lock people up what talks to themselves where you is?
Easy: the daid can talk to the living. The Daidocrapic National Committee does it all the time, via their chairpoison, Daiddie Wasserproblem Schultz.
But there are other ways: through instrumental transcommunication or ITC...we of the Daid can speak to you of the LIVE by way of various forms of technical apparatus via the Astral Bridge from Lotsa Nowheres -- though some of them are pretty nice places actually -- and we can do it when you th'yah in the physical world make a connection with us h'yah in the spirit woild.
You dun did that. And you didn't need a Ouija board, witch doctor or ooga booga spell. It was just bad joo joo.
Eat real food instead of your elephant-trampled path kill neighbor next time.
Now, far as the fungibles you're writing about, we h'yah in the 3rd Astral Plane don't need no stinking fungibles; here the West African franc -- fit for wiping your bum -- and the Euro are on equal footing. Not worth squat.
But on the physical plane -- th'yah where you is -- certain negotiable currencies holds a degree of legitimacy.
If I had any a dat, and you wants dat, you can has dat.
We okay fine now?
Ruben Moussa didn't find this response as humerus as I sorta did:
this not funny
I agree that part of it wasn't...the rest was meant to make me forget the part that wasn't. It didn't work for you?
I'll never know, 'cuz Ruben don't like talking to the daid....
