The Captain Hammer e-mail is fantastic.
Curse you Captain Hammer!
Geek that I am, I tried the youtube link Captain Hammer sent. If I didn't get the last letter wrong (was it supposed to be a capital O or was it a Zero?), the link doesn't work.
Some of those others are really great, too. #3 and #1 are both hilarious.
I'm glad to know that I wasn't the only one who tried the youtube link.

Then there's me, who methodically went and typed it in after reading "The Captain Hammer e-mail is fantastic." even though three comments down, visible on my screen, Simon had linked it.

I'm back from my volunteer trip. Let's get together and catch up soon, I'm dying to hear more about this new boyfriend of yours!

Nicely done, Zeitgeist.
zeitgeist is a bad man.
He may be a bad man, but he's a good poet.

Thank you, we'll be here all week!
I guess I killed this thread. No one else has one?
I just can't think of anything as witty/sad as what you did.
I want to marry all of you for your hilarious Dr Horrible emails. I wish I could think of one to add!
