Thoughtful Thursday: Don't forward blindly!
Come listen to a story about a woman named Mom
A lovely lady who 'most always kept her calm
Then one day some email she did receive
And up on the screen came one which did deceive.
Lies, that is, false info, bull crap.
Well the first thing you know ole Mom sees it's not fair,
Kinfolk said "Mom move away from there!"
Said "a fact check site is the place you ought to be"
So she opened a new window and assessed veracity.
Snopes, that is. Snopes dot com, for the facts.
Well now it's time to say good by to Mom and all her kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in.
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of her hospitality.
Virtual, that is. Set a spell, take your shoes off.
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
Seriously, people. If you aren't entirely confident what you've received is true, please check it out before forwarding on. And if it's shown to be false, let the person who sent it to you know.
