Rhymes with Peenis

In the mid-90s Alternative Rock was blowing up in Chicago. Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, Urge Overkill and Liz Phair were all making waves well beyond Lake Michigan. Of course, the snarky Reglar Wiglar was there to document those bands who didn't quite achieve "next-big-thing" status. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Weenis!

Ivory Coast Blues

From Helen Kolonga
Rue 6 BP 01 Cocody Abidjan CI
Cote d Ivoire.

+225 08 42 10 57

I do apologize for approaching you from the blues. I was formerly a Medical student of the University of Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire. My parents and my only brother where killed by the current government because my father was an opposition leader.

Before the death of my father, he has $9.5 M USD (Nine Million , Five Hundred Thousand dollars.) in a domiciliary account with a bank in Côte d'Ivoire which i am the next of kin.

I HUMBLY NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS :
1) To help get this money transferred to you.
2) To serve as the guardian
3) To make an arrangement for me to come over after this money is transferred.
4) To look for a good venture where the money will be invested.

I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation of your effort after a successful transfer.

Your Sincerely,

Helen
