Ok, if you remember this story raise your hand. Now take a moment and ask yourself if you remember the sequel to this. If not, go here and catch up.

Ready? Good. Shola and I have continued our correspondence. He sent two emails today. Here is the latest installment of it.

My response to Shola is as follows:

Dear Shola,

Thank you for sending your pictures. You have a wonderful family. In my prior letter
I mentioned that I am a follower and true believer of the Church of The TreeFrog and hold the position of Bishop of BullFrog.
I have provided you with a picture of me dressed in my ceremonial robes.

Even as we speak I am working upon this superior project of ours with the greatest speed that I can muster.
But like many things it must be done precisely and with great care and that is why I must insist on you helping me with
certain business customs.

As I mentioned in a prior note it is important that we continue to build our bond of friendship, faith and trust. This is why I asked you for a picture and responses to some questions. Without answers to these questions I may not be able to finish this work.

Can you make haste and please supply me with the answers to these questions so that there are not any interruptions.

How much wood, could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck, could chuck wood?

If you had a hammer would you hammer in the morning? Would you hammer out danger? Would you hammer out warning?

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

How many kilos of food do you consume each day?

If a store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week why are there locks on the door?

Could a swallow carry a cocoanut?

Who is greater, Magic Johnson or Larry Bird?

My Best Regards,

Mr. Jack Shack

    The German lotto- now why couldn’t I win something like that.

  2. Rebecca February 26, 2006 at 2:22 am

    My daugther has a towel just like that!

  3. Eliyahu February 26, 2006 at 1:32 am

    I was all ready to join your church, being impressed as I was with your holy garb….but just then I was informed by email that I had just won the German Lotto!! I guess in that one you can win even if you don’t play! When the check comes, maybe we can do lunch!

    Oh, good Lord. That is the flipping funniest thing I have read.

    Your Amphibiancy — thanks for the belly laugh.

    I get my ideas from watching the world around me.

  6. ~ Stacy ~ February 23, 2006 at 7:58 pm


    Your ceremonial robes are rather impressive.

  7. Ezzie February 23, 2006 at 9:43 am

    Awesome – esp the pic. 🙂

    (All right guys, just target the snowball launcher at the giant frog…)

  8. westbankmama February 23, 2006 at 8:16 am

  10. Gavriel February 23, 2006 at 7:34 am

    It is amazing how these guys seem to have absolutely no clue, and yet are apparently able to swindle enough money out of people with these emails to at least justify the effort. Well done.

  11. Jack's Shack February 23, 2006 at 6:03 am

    You can wear your cop uniform. Jameel is going to dress up as an Indian and maybe I’ll be a construction worker.

  12. Jerusalemcop February 23, 2006 at 6:00 am

    do i get a uniform with it?

    ..or do u need a photo of me with a picture of todays j-post?


  13. Jack's Shack February 23, 2006 at 5:51 am


    I’ll send you an application.

  14. Jerusalemcop February 23, 2006 at 5:37 am

    excellent post!!!!!

    how do i sign up to be a part of the church of the treefrog. the uniforms look great.


  15. Jack's Shack February 23, 2006 at 12:59 am


    I am sure that he is serious.


    Wicked, now there is a term that hasn’t been used to describe me in about a week. 😉


    It sounds like it would make great reading.


    The check is in the mail.




    I believe in many things.


    So do you.



  16. StepIma February 23, 2006 at 12:08 am


    damn. Reading those things is infecting my own Engishability.

  17. StepIma February 23, 2006 at 12:07 am

    Very nice!

    I still don’t see the photo of today’s paper that you requested. Whereas you provided clear indisputed evidence of your Holy Amphibiosity. Jack 1, Shola 0 on the credibility meter, if you ask me.

  18. Jameel February 22, 2006 at 8:05 pm


  19. Sweettooth120 February 22, 2006 at 7:48 pm

    I thought you were a believer in the Church of the Spaghetti Monster?

    I love it that he is actually writing back. Hysterical.

    p.s. I just got whammed by your verification. Gotta do it over.

  20. Z February 22, 2006 at 6:30 pm

    This guy actually writes BACK?

  21. Bill February 22, 2006 at 6:29 pm

    Oh fellow true believer of the Church of The TreeFrog and Bishop of BullFrog.

    Your wisdom is beyond measure.

    Can I borrow $18,000?

    Why are these guys always from Nigeria or West Africa?

    Rather than a 419 scam, should not the name be “worlds most obvious scam?”

  22. Ger Tzadik February 22, 2006 at 5:29 pm

    Someone at work here does this for recreation. He then sends the results of his efforts to us. It makes for great lunchtime distraction.

  23. Regina Clare Jane February 22, 2006 at 5:20 pm

    Jack- you are wicked, I tell you… and very wise in your own way… I grovel at your feet in front of your worldly wicked wisdom…;)

  24. Ezer K'negdo February 22, 2006 at 4:52 pm

    Jack, do you think this guy is serious? Or is he going along on the ride with you? Maybe I am naive – I hope he is not serious and needs actual help. I am often a lollie on these things! Which has nothing to do with the fact that I am a Cleveland Alum, so let’s get off that thread! LOL 😉
