I’m a big fan of the email below for a couple of reasons. I like the made-up Britishey-ness of it and that it was posed as a series of questions that seem geared to ascertain whether I’M a scam! (FYI, my answers were: No, no and not really.)

Do you have any idea on how you can invest $USD 25m for my late Client. Are you ready for the release of funds? Can you be trusted? Please respond if interested.
This week I cover the light-hearted legal drama FRANKLIN & BASH. I was lucky enough to get co-star and my BEST FRIEND IN THE ENTIRE WORLD Kumail Nanjiani and his wonderful wife WHO IS ALSO MY BEST FRIEND IN THE ENTIRE WORLD to do a quick interview with me about the show, their lives together, blah blah blah. I’d say the interview went…well…ish. I mean, no one cried. I did AFTER I shut off the camera, but hey, who amongst us hasn’t cried every afternoon for 3 weeks in a row, right? I’m just a man. I’m not made of untears, right? RIGHT?!!!
