Since I put up this
website, I've received quite a number of wonderfully inspirational messages. (Excuse
me while I go take my truth pills...) Well, mostly
wonderful and inspirational - some of them are just plain wacko. Anyway,
I thought it might be kind of fun for you to read them too, so here they are in
all their splendor.
When it comes to profane language,
excessive use of such words will lead to "bleeping". And don't
even get me started on spelling or grammar -- all messages are in their original
state, I've made no fixes at all.

GET A ******* JOB YOU **** *** ***** **** **********!
(Yikes! My ears started bleeding after I read this message. I didn't even know a few of the words could be used in such a way.)
YOU ARE A LOSER! jeez, if i had a penny, i
would break it in half and send that to you.

Heard: Miraculous revelation
My dear man, I have seen the many messages
from people who have visited your site and said "I would send you money,
but I'm broke, sorry." These people are lying, thieving, greedmongers. I,
too, had no money, when I found your site.
But I swore to myself
resolvedly that before I died, I would give you not a buck, but 5. That's right.
(Truly, your revelation was miraculous!)
I began to work for the $5. I would scrape up change, check phone booths for left-over
quarters, and yes, I even stooped to writing a trashy romance novel and accepting
But now, nearly 18 minutes after I first laid
eyes on your site, I have the $5.00, my odyssey is complete. If any man asks me
"Did you give the gimmeabuck guy a buck?" I can stand up straight and
tall and say to him in a firm, clear, unwavering voice. "Yes, sir, I did.
And four more to boot." Today I am whole. Today my life is complete. Thank
I have only two requests. First, when you go to your fancy
dinner, use my $5.00 for a part of the tip. And when the waiter or waitress collects
it, put your hand on his or her shoulder and say
"That money came to
me from a man who went through many pains and many troubles, a veritable miasma
of suffering. But now his anguish is complete, and the $5 now passes to you."
nod at him or her slowly and meaningfully, and pat them on the shoulder in a paternal
sort of way.
Secondly, leave my website URL on here.
the message board - I added your link :)
conclude, I would say that those $5 were the greatest $5 I would ever spend. If
I ever spend $5 on, say, helping to save a poor crippled orphan's life, and the
doctors come up to me and say "Sir, we are in your debt. Without that $5,
we could have never saved that boy's life", I will respond to them thus:
good gentlemen, I have done good here, but my charity here is pale in comparison
to the charity towards the great man at gimmeabuck.com. The monetary amount is
the same, but only the gimmeabuck.com guy gives you purpose, ego, a reason for
life in return. Then I would take my $5 back from the little orphan kid and leave
him to die, and give the $5 to you. For you are the only one who truly deserves
it, if the fates are willing and bestow upon me more funds.
you for making me a complete person. When I conquer the world and its inhabitants
in the very near future, you will be the tax collector, and not forced to pull
reeds from the swamps like the other underlings. Peace be with you.

isn't so bad. I actually did that for a summer when I was in school. The pay sucked
- but the leeches were downright tasty!)
Hello! I am so curious. You made a whole web page to get a
dollar? What made you decide to do this??? Well, If I had a dollar I'd give it
to ya....but I have a negative 25 in my bank account and I'm a starving college
student studying to be an actress....when I'm on broadway I'll give you a dollar....but
in the mean time...what posessed you to make a whole web site on getting a dollar?
it's a good think you're "studying" to be an actress because deductive
reasoning is not your thing. I created this "whole website on getting a dollar"
because... you guessed it.. (well, not in your case).. I want people to give
me a dollar.)
i think this site is intresting. i was thinking
of sending you some money but the more i think about it the more moral i loose
on the subject of sending you money. did you make this site becuase you are desprite
for money becuase you wanted to see how much money you could make? you made around
200 right? thats awsome maybe you should advertise more, but i suppose you would
loose more then you make.....maybe.....i guess making money is about taking risks
huh?well i recently bought a playstion 2 i have been saving up for you digin me?
i have some money left over like around...20 dollars and i was thinking of a good
way to get it off my hands...pizza at pizza hut, deoderant(i'm running out), pairs
or new socks(tempting), guy who wants a dollar...hmmm...you did go through alot
trouble to make this sight, nice interface, nice navigation, i think you deserve
something but you did get around 200 right? i just can't make up my mind new socks
or guy who needs dollar...i guess i don't really need new socks...i do have a
whole drawer full
(Your email came at a perfect time!
I was recently looking inside my own sock drawer and I realized my socks are all
in pretty sad shape. How about if you send me the $20, and I'll buy myself some
new socks with it? That way we both win!)
It's been 7 months since my 18th birthday. I said
Id send you money after that, and I just want to let you know that 15-20 bucks
will be on it's way shortly. *Plus* I like you soooo much, that I've set a few
(about 20) computers home pages to your site :D (Cyber cafes, libraries, friends,
school) So I hope you get some more money soon :) (Awesome!
Rhonda just sent this a few minutes ago.. click here
for a scan of her first letter and the bucks. I can hardly wait to get the sequel.)
Me and my Bro both think this was a great idea we to try
to come up with easy ways to become rich. example-Joe came up with the idea of
stealing peoples pets and waitting for them to put out a reward...then we return
their pet and get money.....but that hasnt happened yet so we cant send you a
dollar. (www.getyourpetback.com is still available!)
Yo peep dis. Me and my homey DB found some stoopid
fly honeys, so I says to honey #1, "Damn Bitch, You Stoopid Fly. How's about
you back that *** up and let me smack that monkey!". DB just says "Word".
Next thing ya know, jimmy hat was on and we was hittin it while listenin to some
fly beats. Me and DB that is - the honeys just dissed us. (What?)
i've just spent the past half hour on your site, trying
to take all this in...maybe i'm the one who's insane, or i'm just really, really
bored. it doesn't surprise me that someone could stoop so low just for a buck.
Do you know how many people are out there who would LOVE to get rich, so they
could pay their "omnipresent-bills"??? The money people are sending
is going to some lazy bum who is just like the rest of us, wanting an easy dollar.
What really sets me off, is the fact that people sent you money...and for no good
reason. you should be ashamed that you're taking a dollar that could go to some
poor kids! don't get me wrong, i rarely donate money, (considering i'm only a
jobless junior in high school!) but nonetheless, i'd rather give money to a good
cause then to waste it. and now i'm wasting my time on a lost cause...i guess
you got what you wanted, right? (Um.. no. What I wanted
was a dollar. You seem to have only given me your philosophy on life.)
I think y'all
should shut the **** up and leave the gimme-the-buck-guy the **** alone. Y'all
are sitting in your little suburban homes BURNING your dollars. Either that or
feeding them to your worthless children. GOD you need to get those dollars out
of your *** that are making you such a TIGHTWAD and send them to this entrepreneur.
Strong words for a strong cause, my man. (Thanks man. I
only hope the world is listening.)
I'm sure many of us have had the thought of running an ad in the
back of a magazine in the classifieds...give me a dollar started there...this
takes it to a new level. Excellent website! Very creative! You don't need a job,
as some have said: this can BE your job. You can demonstrate to the rest of us
lazy working people that to do something unique and creative can be more rewarding
than the traditional 'job'. GOOD LUCK, sir! May you acheive all you conceive.
Don't listen to the nay-sayers; you're doing what few have the nerve or courage
to do. Thanks for the entertaining website. I don't have a dollar for you; but
perhaps my words of praise and encouragement could be worth more than a dollar,
I hope so. (Nope. I'd rather you had sent me a buck. If
I wanted praise and encouragement I'd have called it "The Amazing Gimme Good
Your nuts. I could use that dollar for 2 packs of gum. Nice try
(How about sending me one of those packs of
gum? I could use some gum. What flavour is it?)
Get lost ya scabby ****head. I doubt that any one will ever give
ya their dosh that they worked their honist butt of for. I'd prefure 2 keep mi
buck and I imagine so will other people.Ya may say that its only $1 so what its
my $ and its gonna stay my $. U get paied by the government like everyone else
and if ya poor its ya own friggin fault.And ya freakish family, they'd b ashamed
of you and wouldn't admit knowing you if they knew what you were doing. Ya should
be ashamed of ya self having to scab over the internet, so go and get a job ya
povo *****. Call me a cheapskate ya bugger. **** off and stop asking people for
money, derro! ***** ****** ***** ya didnt even say ***** please. Its all 'gimme
a buck' speak'n like that you'll never get nothing. So once again **** off ya
skabby looking **** and go *** out ya ******.
Even I had to wash my mouth out with soap after reading that!)
Do I have
to skin it first?
(I didn't get this one either...
so my wife explained it to me. A *buck*. Get it? As in a deer? Gimme A
BUCK. After a while, it's pretty funny!)
that's pretty stupid of you to do all this. only idiots would
send a bum like you money. i can't fathom how lazy and stupid you must be, let
alone the people that actually send you money. the world is already full of idiots
anyway, it's nice to see you contributing to the idiot population. get a real
job, and then if you need money then get a loan, or borrow money from friends
(if you have any) or family (if they're willing to claim you). that's all. sincerely,
p.s. - please notify me if you put this on your site, and
please write back. i'd like to see just how accomplished of a writer you are.
(Apparently, I am an idiot. I wish I had heard from this
guy a lot sooner because he would have saved me a lot of stress. All this time..
I just didn't realize my problem is that I am an idiot! Now that I know (thanks
Mathew!) I'm an idiot I can live a bit more peacefully - as only an idiot can.)
Once upon a time there was a little dollar that was lying under
my computer keyboard. One day I picked up the keyboard. I found the dollar! I
spent it. I spent it on a chocolate bar. It was a very delicious chocolate bar.
It tasted good. If you are wondering why my dollar is not in your mail box, that
is why. Because of chocolate.
(Once upon a time there
was a woman who gave birth to the most annoying little child in all of history...
she would have sent the child to remedial school, but she spent the money on chocolate
bars instead. So now you know where those urges for chocolate come from.)

*my* problem is, them?)
Well hey. ill send you a dollor, a CANADIAN dollor! haha you fool.
that is only like 50 cents american (grumbles about crappy exchange rate). But
oh yes, fear Canada, because some day all americans will grovel at our feel for
our precious loonies. mwa ha ha ha!!! (There is nothing sadder than a meglomaniacal[sic]
Canadian.) -- C, eh, N, eh, D, eh
(Although a loonie
Canadian comes close.) <grin>
It is not a law that you have to put a 33 cent (or whatever the
current postage price is) stamp on a envolope. If you where to put a 1 cent stamp
on a envolope with no return address on the envolope, and drop it into one of
those corner mailboxes (do not put it in your mailbox or drop it off at the post
office) the post office has to deliver the letter with that postage. They way
it works is the post office has made a offer to deliever your mail for 33 cents,
you counter offer with the 1 cent stamp and as soon as that envelope is picked
up by the mail carrier its an acceptance of the counter offer. Sometimes they
may include a postage due bill with the envelope but I have never had it collected
upon. So you see you to can help this person for only $1.01. As for myself I figure
this advice and little loophole is worth a buck so consider this my contribution
to your campain.
(Anyone want to test his hypothesis?
If I receive your letter (and your buck), I'll post that fact right here. That
way we can all save a bit!)
You know, as a 16 year old, I'm pretty broke, but you made this
amazing website (oohs and ahhs in the background) so I say if I have the money
after Christmas shopping, I'll be sure to send it your way. Great site, keep up
the great (and hilarious) work! -- South Carolina
huh. I hear ya. Every year my wife and I try to spend as little as we can to minimize
ye-old-omnipresent-pile-o-bills, but every year we end up just a little bit worse
then the last. I think www.brokefromshoppinghelpmeoutplease.com is still
I give you one million dollars will you come to my house and clean my bathroom?
( YES!! Absolutely. Well, actually...I'd take that
million and spend about $5,000 of it to redo your bathroom. So not only would
you have a new bathroom, but it would be clean, too! Heck, today I'm feeling generous
so for a mere $10,000 I'll come and clean your bathroom. My wife says I'm pretty
good at toilets.)
I must admit...this is a great idea. How much money have you gotten so far? If
I put up a site and link it to your'se, can I have a commission? I'll only ask
for $.30 for every dollar you take in. Can we do this? hehehe. Just kiddin. Really,
though, I'd be inclined to give you a whole 5 bucks if you were within driving
distance just for the sheer balls that you have. I guess it's easier than standing
on the street corner and holding a cardboard sign. :) Good luck (I'm not sending
you a buck). -- Houston, Texas
(Jeez, you get me all
excited about this possible business partnership and then 'WHAM!' -- you let me
down. What a bummer. And to top it off, you don't even send me a buck...sigh)
i gave u a buck 4 each time i laughed, i'd be broke and u'd be rich. Since i'm
not going to give u anything, u're poor and i'm rich..ha!
to mention mean-spirited and dimwitted.)
Darn.... I wish you were single... I laughed my butt off at this
site... but you know what.... I'm sending you a dollar... and I am telling all
my family members to send you one too.. I sit here typing this thinking ... I
am sure that the general public would like to see "someone" succeed and "what's
a buck?" Look for it in "snail mail".... I'll mark it so you know I am the one
that sent it... I put the letters "WAB" on it... "W"hats "A" "B"uck..... LOVE
YOU FOR THIS...
(Your buck is a step towards that success.
One very small step, but a step nonetheless. To the general public I repeat
the question: "What's a Buck?!" Oh ya, and I generally prefer women
who *have* a butt.)
I found this really awesome way for you to makjes lots of money
easily! You don't have to download anything like a browser, just refer people!
It's that simple. Since you seem to be in desperate need of money, I am sharing
this with you. All I ask for in return is that you use my REFERAL ID when you

people, get them to sign up ten more people, and then give me all the cash, ok?

I like this guy. He doesn't make any pretenses, and he's pretty
funny. After the time and effort he spent on the web page, I think he deserves
a buck or two from everyone who has a laugh. I'd have given more, but I'm not
exactly rich myself. Yer welcome fer the money. You can even keep whatever's in
that weird little box on the secret pages.
This guy gave me $10 !! What a wonderful world! I'm overjoyed! Ahhh, life is beautiful
it alright if I fax you a buck?

as you put your name and address on the transmittal info so I can hunt you down..)

AMBUSHED you? Let me get this straight: My website, which is a PASSIVE mechanism,
sits here quietly until YOU SEARCH for it, YOU TYPE IN IT'S ADDRESS, and YOU SIT
AND WAIT FOR IT TO APPEAR, has somehow AMBUSHED YOU? Were you somehow fooled by
the misleading name? Were you looking for americanworkethic.com and mistakenly
typed gimmeabuck.com instead? Exactly HOW were you ambushed?)
Hey, this isn't so unusual. I get this form from the IRS every
year that tells me to fill out this confusing form, and after doing so, I'm supposed
to send them several hundred dollars! With this, I don't have to fill anything
out, and if I don't send the dollar, I don't go to prison.
