World dumbest chain mail warning doohickey

My girlfriend got this from an acquaintance. I haven't changed it at all, except to mask incriminating headers.

I should mention that I get a dozen or so similar things per week, from well meaning relatives and acquaintances. I usually delete them instantly, or sometimes I'll Snopes 'em and help snuff the meme in question, but this one stands as such a beacon of, well, something, that I had to share.
