Good grief

Here’s an angry fax sent by an angry teabagger (4 times) to a House of Representatives office today:

Yes, it’s backwards, because the teabagger fed it into the fax machine upside down.  The message wouldn’t be visible on the incoming fax, were it not for the psychotically outraged pressure exerted on the felt pen used to write the original.

    Actually, if they used a permanent marker, the ink would bleed through the paper, even without applying much pressure.

    Of course, writing letters to your elected representative in permanent marker is still kinda out there.

    Well if he was writing in permanent marker, it could have been the fumes that made him all woozy. LOL.

    Or it could be the effects of long term permanent marker usage.

    Hmmmmm. Maybe they should go back to crayons.

    I suppose they probably aren’t allowed access to pens, pencils or other sharp objects there on the ward. I bet the nurses were ticked off when they caught them messing with the fax machine though.

    Fax? Who still uses fax?

    He’s probably just upset because the health plan doesn’t cover leeches and bleeding.

    Mark H – Yes, he probably used a Sharpie. But even so… I’ve used Sharpies on paper lots of times and not had it bleed so heavily through to the other side that it could even be seen on a fax 😯 Either he (or she) was applying a lot of pressure to it, or writing very slowly (and I guess that’s always a possibility).

    pale – The fumes, that’s the ticket. It’s the fumes 😆

    rev. – I’m amazed they managed to push all the little buttons with their arms tied behind them… oh, Jesus, let’s not go there.

    RB – Don’t people still use faxes? We use one at my place of employment… isn’t it still the only way of ensuring that a document actually reaches its destination (next to certified mail)? Stuff can disappear on the innertubes 😉

    Yes, but more and more things that used to require a physical signature can be done online, such as a credit card or loan/mortgage application, and many of the things that do require a signed document require an original.

    Also, documents can be scanned and emailed at far higher quality levels. So while the fax still exists, it’s much less prevalent than it was a decade ago.

    What are they going to write about us 500 years from now?

Wait. What?
