Here is the text of the chain letter:
I just wanted to warn all of my friends about something that has been occurring
more and more lately, all through out the country.
Groups of teenagers have been caught, in alarming numbers, playing a new and
dangerous game called Spunkball. Spunkball consists of a group ofteens in a car
pulling up to a stop light, and looking around for a car stopped near by with
an open window. When one is spotted, the teens shout, "Spunkball", and throw a
gasoline soaked rag that has been wrapped in aluminum foil threw the open
window. On the outside of the foil is attached a small fire cracker, with the
fuse lit. When the fire cracker explodes, it shreds the foil, and the rag is
ignited, causing a large flame that may catch the interior of the car on fire.
Spunkball playing has already claimed two lives, caused uncountable injuries
due to burns, and caused thousands of dollars in damage to automobiles. The
best defense, say authorities, is to keep all windows rolled up when stopped at
traffic lights, as only cars with windows down are being targeted. If you are
at a red-light and hear a shout of "Spunkball", and notice something come
flying in your window, the best thing to do is to have all passengers
immediately exit the vehicle. DO NOT try to retreive the object, as it will
ignite once the fire cracker explodes.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU CARE ABOUT
