Generally, I hate the warnings that get sent around, but I have to admit that this one is important.

Please protect everyone you know by sending this to your entire email list.

If a man comes to your door and says he is conducting a survey and asks you to show him your bum, do NOT show him your bum. This is a scam - he only wants to see your bum.

I wish I'd got this yesterday.

I feel so stupid and cheap.

Thanks for the warning.

—Alorael, who will add that anyone coming to your house conducting a survey probably should be avoided anyway, even if he does not want to see your bum.

What? That was a scam? But he had a camera and everything. What's he going to do with all those pictures?

I convinced him to show me his instead. Then I stuffed the camera in a place that made him squeal.

Generally, showing strangers your bum deserves ill looks.

I'll have you know I have a degree in surveying from the Devry Institute of Technology. I'm completely legit.

I think we're going to need to see that degree first. Also, what classes does a degree in surveying require?

If you are willing to show complete strangers your bum without hesitation, then you should. I can't believe anybody would do something that stupid.

He offered me a new, adorable ferret, and a bottle of Jack to boot. He was a such a gentleman about it; how could I not allow him a glance at my bum? :(

Gee, he must be fast moving. He has managed to travel a long distance just to see people's bums.

I wouldn't show him my bum anyway, it doesn't matter what survey he is conducting.

Our bum moved away some time ago into a nice little hut in the woods. We take his mail round on Saturdays. The nice man was very interested to know all this, and wrote it all down on his clipboard. Then he asked if we would be interested in housing a new one.

Often as I've felt like saying this about other topics here (and I'm sure the feeling is common), something has always held me back. But suddenly it's gone!

This is asinine.

Cheer up Trinity, did you leave your sense of humour at home today? =(

Moreso, does it make you feel bigger than other people because you can use a "big" word to simply say "crap"?

Talk about party pooper. =/

Oh, come on, SoT brought his sense of humor in full force. You know, being asinine implies acting like, you know, and this topic is about people showing their, you know. Goodness.

EDIT: Unless, of course, you were just playing along, Kuc. In that case, I just rendered the clipboard and the dodgy degree completely unnecessary.

+_+ Today I got a letter from the official bum company announcing the visit of a bum examiner for next week.
Thanks for the warning kuc! Now I can hide my bum collection and think about showing him ... um ... something else instead. But what? Any suggestions?

You know it was going fine and dandy up until now(smooth editing Hawk King, but I caught that)... Instead of your showing him your bum collection, how about a bag of lepers?

What is this topic about? I don't get it... But on the other hand I am not from US where this bum thing seem to be going on.

Explain someone, please.

Somehow that doesn't surprise me... Oh, and the bum thing started in Australia not here. Better watch out, he might be heading to Sweden soon...
