An article about sleepwalkers who send e-mails (see <http://
www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/3743289/Zzz -mail-What-happens-when-sleepwalkers-go-online.html >,
aka <http://preview.tinyurl.com/6fbtjv>) contains this interesting
tidbit regarding the e-mails:
-----
Each was in a random mix of upper and lower cases, not well formatted
and written in strange language. One read: "Come tomorrow and sort
this hell hole out. Dinner and drinks, 4.pm,. Bring wine and caviar
only."

That's much more coherent than anything Torgo would have come up with --
plus, he doesn't really strike me as a wine-and-caviar kind of guy.

I'm expecting Torgo to also include, "ThIS iS a WHiTe NegLigE PaRTy.
LAdiEs OnLY. ThE MaSTEr LIKEs IT thAT wAy."

And then some mysterious drool and monitor-crotch-humping marks are left
in any flatbed-scanned images in the email.

Well, they did clean it up for the benefit of readers ;-). That said,
maybe we just didn't see the SMOOTHER side of Torgo. He's not just a
henchman... he's a LOVER! I can see it now, a BARRY WHITE song set to
video from the antics of TORGO -- or would that be wrong?

Of course, there's also the horrifying alternative that it
might be just what Torgo thinks of as caviar. You probably shouldn't
eat anything today now that you've had that thought. I apologize for
giving it out, but you think I want it?
