A Texan woman has been sentenced to death after a court found her guilty as an accessory to murder upon hearing she heartlessly refused to act on a clear e-mail warning.
Lara Bush of Deadskunk, West Texas was sent an chain e-mail stating in clear terms that a friend of hers "would meet with a terrible accident" unless she forwarded the message to 10 of her friend or more.
The court was in shock as it heard she paid scant attention to the message, a plea for assistance from a deposed Nigerian prince. Less than three years after the original e-mail, Serendipity Lee, 83, a close friend of Bush, was found dead.
Judge Mental had no hesitation in awarding the maximum penalty to the "wicked and wanton devil-child" and also chastised her for ignoring the help of "an unfortunate prince, robbed of his birthright".
Mental also sold rights for the public screening of the execution to Fox news, saying "the whole of America needs to see the grim consequences of not responding to threatening chain e-mails".
It is also understood that Fox news presenter Bill O' Reilly has personally paid for the exiled Nigerian prince to attend a big-screen showing of the execution.
"As he hears the screams of anguish on Dolby surround and sees the look of unabated terror in her eyes in High Definition" said O'Reilly, "he will finally know what it's like to live in a civilised country".
