Email (buzz@cnet.com)

A few months ago my friend came by asking me for a movie he said he wanted to watch tomorow with his girlfriend. He also brought a music mix on a MP3 player he was gonna gift to his girlfriend. He also needed to go to the bathroom. I tought it was a good time to pay him back for an old and forgotten prank he pulled on me. So, I took the MP3 from his jacket and filled it up with all the Weird Al songs I could download. At the moment I did not know who his girlfriend was. Imagine my suprise when I helped my math teacher sett up her new MP3 player and found 50 Weird Al songs on it. Let us just say I had an A that semester. Muhahahaha!

Hi,

Just thought I would submit some fan art for BOL, specifically for Molly, since it seems like the 404 boys always get a lot of these. If anyone can forward this pic to her, I figure she would get a kick out of it. Bonus geek points for anyone that can figure out who the nemesis is.

Thanks from a regular BOL viewer and chat room fan
