I received this email the other day:
I think that one of my jovial colleagues has enrolled me to your list for a joke. Please can you un-enroll me. Many thanks, (name deleted).
I am sure you’ll agree that this was very funny. Oh the hilarity – his mate’s enrolled him to a list about irritable BOWEL syndrome! It’s even got the word BOWEL in the title, oh I can hardly keep my sides from splitting.
You complete prat, is all I can say. How dare you presume to laugh at me and my IBS mates. Go right away right now.
