If you aren't already sick of the message in the bottle:

One email, sent by a furniture salesman to Yours Truly and 3Legged Cat:

"You are now forever famous. You ended up on snopes.com!!!

And Fox News...you right wing scum.

This comment was posted after the story:

So the "man who could only identify himself as 'Tom'" now has to rely
on myspace to hit on 12 year old girls, I guess.

And another one (from Chris the furniture guy):

"Tom,

Here on the mainland we have a wonderful sport. We put messages in
bottles and then throw them into small tributaries behind our houses.
Then, because we were raised by trailer-trash parents and taught by
teachers who have such a limited knowledge of hydrology, we have the
mistaken impression these bottles will end up somewhere far away,
rather than 600 yards from our house.

I am 12 years old. Please send a picture of yourself."

I still cannot believe that no one is disgusted that a girl is throwing plastics into our nations waterways.
