Rerun Joke Theory

I have a theory on rerun jokes. I have several friends, mostly female, as well as people I do not keep in touch with via email, that send everybody in their address book jokes, what I call friendship cuties, prayer wheels, and right wing religious/political messages. Many never write or send an email, they just continuously forward whatever they got forwarded to them.

I usually ignore these things as I have seen them before. But sometimes I will post one. Today's chicken thing for example.

Anyway, what I have noticed is that I will get a joke in an email that will have been posted on here a few days before or is posted on here a few days or weeks later.

That same cycle will also apply to the emails that I get from people. Some of these things make the rounds so often that they show up in my inbox every few years.

It all depends on where you are in cycle with people you know that forward this stuff to everybody they know.

reruns...definitely a phenomenon of the net.. An "Aggie" virus of sorts. It doesn't take on a life of its own without the willing "Aggies" (or substitute your favorite ethnic group) who cut & paste or forward the joke or snope or what have you.

I have wondered if I sent something original out to everyone I knew, how long would it take before it came back to me?. and would my email address still be attached 50 layers deep in the forwarded and re-forwarded email?

Good question, and may I add how many times would you get it?
