Every once in a while, I get an email joke that just really hits me...

The following ad in The Atlanta Journal received numerous calls:

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant.

"I'm a very good-looking girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping, and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire.

"Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Kiss me and I'm yours. Call _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ and ask for Daisy."

Men who called found themselves talking to the local Humane Society about an 8-week-old black Labrador retriever.
