Something I found in my local newspaper.
Penny Bown, nine years old, has been missing for the past two weeks.
That is anyway the cry of distress on the Internet.
One parent cries out for help and information, and asks to send the message
to as mush people as possible.
The mail shows a picture of a red headed little girl, smiling and leaning over
At Child Focus (_ the Belgium organisation which do help out in search for
missing persons) a lot of mails came in offering help.
But Child Focus replies: " Penny Brown ? Don 't send it through. We do
know nothing about this case. There has been no official rapport about the
missing penny Brown. We did check others centra, even in Washington.
There too they know nothing about the one called Penny Brown.
We suspect that is a misplaced joke." ( BCZ)
I do think it is a kind of sick joke, but on the other hand another clear case
of a memetic chain- lettre is riding its tracks.
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
