Back in 2003, this message was being forwarded from inbox to inbox. Since then, social media versions of the message have also circulated.
Over the years, I’ve had a number of enquiries about the circulating message. But, in fact, it is just a joke. The image above is attached to the email and works as a visual punchline.
An example of the message:
DIGITAL CAMERA FOR SALE
Digital camera for sale
Looking to sell a digital camera – I don’t need it any longer as I’m in the hospital. I’m including the last photo that I took so that you have some idea about the picture quality.
