[Groop]Space-Time Contradictions

At the exact same moment (give or take a nanosecond) that I received
confirmation that I was deemed worthy to be a part of the Groop (O
Frabtious Day!), I also received the following:

Since I received this message (the message quoted above, not THIS
message!), this means I couldn't possibly have received the confirmation
message entitled (or even simply titled) "Welcome to the 'Groop' mailing
list (digest mode)"!  Or, since I received the confirmation message, I
couldn't possibly have received the "Undeliverable Mail Returned to
Sender" message.  There are only two possible explanations:

1.  As Dave Barry has proved (by the art of guessing) that copies of
e-mail (especially those which are lost) become a part of the rings of
Saturn, it is entirely possible that the original message (my e-mail to
join the group, not The Original Message, which had something to do with
not partaking of some fruit) fell into a wormhole.

2.  I am a clone.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Groo (except, perhaps, that having
clones could mean I'd have to buy TWO copies of every Groo book now).
