Typos, and The Hunter

In which an innocent request by the_hunter...

"I've been rather taken up with a hobby these last few days...I'm trying to improve, extend and expand my photography skills...
So, over the last week I have been admiring from a distance the hand-carved Swiss cuckoo clock that my boss's boss's boss has sat on his desk.

It is truly a thing of beauty...hand carved characters, maiinly mice, articulated and automated, they dance, carry out different jobs, move in random fashions, while a whole carrilon of bells plays tunes, and the obligatory cuckoo jumps out and announces the hour. It may sound tacky, but in fact it is both tasteful, stylish and incredibly well executed, and hand painted and gilded it is genuinely an object to be admired.

So, today I emailed Geoff to ask if I could, over my dinner hour perhaps, set up my camera and get some decent pictures of it...


Just as I pressed *send* my eye caught this sentence...

*I have long admired your magnificent cock, and would dearly love to get some photographs of it, at your convenience*

Your *cock*

Please God, make that didn't happen!!!


Just sent a further email...

*Dear Geoff, please find enclosed the letter l. If you look at my last email you may find a place where that letter belongs, which may cast an entirely different light on our implied social dynamic. Best wishes etc....*

Oh Gods..."

Quoted in its entirety and enjoying the comments mightily. (flocked, qwp)

Magnificent cock is the best thing I've heard all day. If I weren't afraid of my roommate coming in at any second I'd probably be saying it quite loudly.

I was just going to say something similar, although I'm pretty sure my housemate is already wondering why I'm laughing maniacally with my door closed.

This is why I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Unsend feature in Gmail - you have about 5 seconds to go OH SHIT and click "Unsend." It is great!!

Oh my god, I hadn't spotted that. Magnificent.

I'm laughing and "ow"ing alternately. Oh, god, make it stop. I just had my gallbladder out and it HURTS to laugh like this....

BTDT..had mine out a couple months ago. And every time I went to laugh, it was like, "Ow...that's so funny but it HURTS to laugh..owteehee..".

LMAO, hahahaha...that's too funny. I really am wondering what his reply was.



*dies laughing* Wow. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Oh gods. I loled so hard.

This reminds of the stink drama from a while ago. I can't wait to see the follow up.

The general situation is funny enough, but the way the correction was worded was absolutely GENIUS in its wit.

I certainly hope the gentleman has a sense of humor! Perhaps he will be flattered.

the recovery (if such it can be called) was pure wit.

it's been a long time since a metaquotes entry made me laugh like a drain. good show.
