I have one more Gmail to spare, because a friend who won a Gmail here a while ago is donating a Gmail back to Google Blogoscoped.

Round 3 to win your Gmail is an open contest. Tell a joke that has something to do with Gmail. You can make up a joke, or copy a Gmail joke from somewhere, or change an existing joke... whatever you feel like, just post it in this discussion thread along with your first and last name, and your existing email. (You can obfuscate your email to hide it from spiders.)

I will choose the best joke tomorrow, so good luck once more!

PS: If you can't think of a joke you may also write a rhyme or anything creative really.

Why Gmail Is Like a Penis

Those who have it would be devastated if it was ever cut off.

Some folks have it, some don't. Those who have it would be devastated if it were ever cut off.

Those who don't have it may agree that it's a nifty toy, but think it's not worth the fuss that those who do have it make about it. Still, many of those who don't have it would like to try it

Many of those who don't have it would like to try it, a phenomenon psychologists call "Gmail Envy."

It's more fun when it's up, but this makes it hard to get any real work done.

In the long-distant past, its only purpose was to transmit information considered vital to the survival of the species. Some people still think that's the only thing it should be used for, but most folks today use it for fun most of the time.

If you don't take proper precautions, it can spread viruses.

If you use it too much, you'll find it becomes more and more difficult to think coherently.

Once you've started playing with it, it's hard to stop. Some people would just play with it all day if they didn't have work to do.

We attach an importance to it that is far greater than its actual size and influence warrant.

It has no conscience and no memory but a LOT of room to play around. Left to its own devices, it will just do the same damn dumb things it did before.

If you're not careful what you do with it, it can get you into a lot of trouble.

If you play with it too much, you could go blind.

your mama is so poor, she can't even afford a free gmail account!

your mama is so old, her gmail account contains test e-mails from God himself! (God[put at-character here] of course)

your mama is so fat, a zipped digital 3-D model of her can't fit in a 1-GB gmail account!

I once met a lass named Sue
Her beauty complex like beef stew
I asked straight away
please date me today
and she told me to wait in the queue

gmail gmail what what a wonderful phrase.
if you evan metain the word you stir up a craze.
many would give up an arm or a leg,
many have lowered there pride down to beg.
Its totally free or so google has said,
but with this nutty croud your going to wind up dead.
gmail swap, orkut and trade.
some have evan offered to help you get laid.
It sells on ebay for a two hundred or less,
how will they end this screwy mess.
this thing is going public in august they say'
but i want mine this minute, right now today.

Why did Google call their email service Gmail?
Because only cows like to say Moogle.

A biologist, an architect and a Google Gmail programmer meet in a bar and start a phylosophy discussion after few drinks. They argue to decide which of them created the Universe.

"Life is everywhere in the Universe" says the biologist "therefore Biologists" are at the origine of Life in the Universe".

"Fine, but there are a lot of other things than lifeforms in the Universe and all are articulated by a Master Design" says the architecte, "Therefore we architects designed and organized all existing things in the Universe".

The Gmail programmer finishs his beer, smiles at the two others and asks "Who do you think created, manage and keep track of Chaos and Entropy ?"

All of (us))) drooling over such a pathetic goal as to getting a GMail account (or an Orkut invitation), and trying so hard to achieve this goal, should make anyone with some brains in his mind laughing for hours. That has got to be the funniest thing for/from GMail. Who needs jokes when one can see how we react on the thought of getting a GMAIL ACCOUNT!? (like its the hottest girl in the world, and we are he lucky bastards to get her if we try hard enough)
In the end of the day, Its a freaking free e-mail account

Not that I wouldn't fall into the same category..:)

Mark, if you are stuck to something like Hotmail (some of us are), then Gmail truly means salvation. Do you know how many hours I wasted trying to explain family members how to upload something to my FTP account I created for them? How many times a day I had to log-in to Hotmail to delete Spam? How often my inbox was stuffed full, me not being able to get new mails? How this for some can be as critical as not getting a reply to a job application they send out? How I once was covered so heavily with spam (around 1,000 per day with 150K attachments) I had to completely close my email account?

By the way, was your message an official entry? :)

What's the difference between Gmail and Hotmail?

Gmail gives you more room to store all the spam.
