Dear John?

A young girl on a years training course in South Africa recently received a "Dear John" letter from her boyfriend back home. It read as follows:

Dear Mary,I can no longer continue our relationship. The distance between us is just too great. I must admit I have cheated on you twice since you've been gone and it's not fair to either of us. I'm sorry. Please return the picture of me I sent to you. Love, John

Mary, with hurt feelings, asked her colleagues for any snapshots they could spare of their boyfriends, brothers, ex-boyfriends, uncles, cousins, etc. In addition to the picture of John, Mary included all the other pictures of the pretty lads she had collected from her buddies. There were 57 photos in that envelope along with this note:

Dear John,I'm so sorry, but I can't quite remember who the fuck you are. Please take your picture from the pile and send the rest back to me.Take care, Mary
