So on Friday we announced our latest and greatest contest giving away some of these earbuds. Check out all of the info here. Anyway, to enter you simply had to mail us with SHURE THING in the subject line to be entered. Some of you crazy folks took the liberty of giving us some entertainment in the body of the message. Pardon me if I missed your personal autobiography, but there are probably a za-jillion of these emails. Check out all of the craziness after the jump.
Note: Nothing was required in the message field, these people did it out of their own boredom. As long as the subject reads SHURE THING you are entered.

readers as dormant account.

I know that this proposal will come to you as a surprise as we don't
know ourselves before. However I got your contact from a trade

my seeking for a foreign business partner to him.
All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure a risk free
situation on the side of both parties.
Expecting your urgent response,
(It's my last day at work and I have too much time on my hands)
From Ethan: I have to be honest and tell you I'm near-deaf in my left ear, but if you give me these, you could me go all the way...
What the hell? These earbuds will could me go all the way? If I can go all the way I may just keep them for myself.
From Kristin: My ears would make these look good.
Please send pictures of said good-looking ears.
