Usually I only get one or two emails back before they give up and realize I’m not actually going to give them my personal information and/or money but this one went on longer than usual so I decided to share it.

No response so far, but Lil Schnitzel hasn’t given the dream up yet.

UPDATED: It’s been 12 hours and I think ZuZu is being blackballed. But I’m not giving in that easily. Click here for the next step because this post is getting too long.
