Man this is trouble, if this keeps happening I’m going to have to cancel my romshand.com account because I keep sending out viruses!! I hope the administration running romshand.com doesn’t get too upset!!!

Oh crudflints the email is from AOL! They are a large company with money and lawyers and I don’t want them knocking on my door so what should i do???

Um, last I checked, is your name not Romsus? From what this implies, you do not run Romshand…and yet you do, do you not?

Turn yourself in to the Internet police right away.

Then get in the Internet jail.

…Are you joking?

They’re trying to build a prison.
For you and me to live in!

The obvious solution is to download and extract both compressed files, and execute any .exe or .vbs files contained within.

Edit: I now noticed one of them is a .gif file, but it still technically counts as a compressed file. Just not an extractable one.

Okay guys I just got the same email, isn’t that crazy??

But this time it’s from support@romshand.com so they must be trying to help me out, right??

Are you in the jail yet?

Bastard. I hope you roll doubles three more times.

And then you never roll them again! And it costs you $50 to get out of jail!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Nice avatar.

Hey guys I’m in free parking I win $500 oh shi–

Hey guys, I’m a fucktard playing by fucktard rules where “free” means “get money.” I drove downtown last weekend and I saw this sign that said “free parking,” so I counted the number of spaces between me and the lot (5, I was at the train station), blew on my dice while I shook them, then I rolled a 7 and went “aw, fuck,” so I bought the state of Illinois instead and drove around the block once, cashed my paycheck (for $200), then ended back up in the free parking lot. The guy there was a banker and he refused to give me $500 because he said it’s “free parking” and not “give people money to park here,” and I was like, “Dude, it took me two times around the block to land here and now I own Illinois and I want my goddamned $500,” and the banker guy was like, “Tough, fucktard. Read the rules, and not the ones labeled ‘fucktard rules.’”
