B3ta email 30 - 15 MARCH 2002 - "We're broke"

-------------------------------------------------

: SAVE B3TA
  Send us your money.

  On 21st March 2002 B3ta will die - unless we
  can raise enough money to pay for another years
  worth of bandwidth.

  We don't want this to happen, and we hope that
  you don't too.

  We need you to send what you can afford,
  10 or 20 quid would be nice.

  You can pay with palpay or send a cheque.

  B3TA SALUTES -  the computer specialist who
  operated an Internet sex site on a U.S. army
  network. He claimed he needed the bandwidth
  for communicating with forces in Bosnia.

: EXPLODING BUNNIES
  You helped fund this. It's all your fault.

  A few weeks ago we asked you to buy Rathergood
  merchandise to raise funds for Joel Veitch so
  that he could buy enough explosives to blow up
  a stuffed bunny.

  Joel says, "The response was fantastic. I've
  now sold about 50 items, including 2 pairs
  of boxer shorts with crabs on them."

  "As promised", he continues, "I've documented
  my terrorism on the web. Oh and I'm still
  looking to sell more stuff so that I can blow
  up a penguin."

: BLIND MAN'S PENIS
  It's erect because he's blind.

  In 1976 bored teenager John Trubee saw an add
  in paper, asking for songwriters.

  "Wouldn't it be fun", he thought, "to send
  these people the most ridiculous, stupid,
  vile, obscene, retarded lyrics to see their
  response?"

  And that's what he did. And the laconic reading
  of the song the company returned was fantastic.

  Listen.
