Hey, we all get unwanted email from relatives.  My own Mother (bless 
her heart) is urban legend central.  You name it, she'll forward it. 
Every time I reply with a link to an urban legend debunking site, but 
that doesn't seem to help.

And that doesn't quite cover the other categories of forwarded email-- 
pictures of puppies sleeping with kittens, heartwarming tales from the 
heartland, and warnings about highly unlikely combinations of events.
