I thought I'd put in a plug for one of the funniest mailing lists I've seen in quite a while: This is true. Randy Cassingham, the moderator collects unusual stories from around the world and posts them weekly, with insiteful taglines attached. Valorie got me hooked about a year ago, we're both subscribers to the premium edition.
Every story on the list is verified to be true.
One of my favorites is the “honorary unsub“ - it's an obituary for someone who should have been be famous that died the previous week.
Oh, and he's got an RSS Feed too so you don't need to get even more email :).
