This past weekend, comedian Fran Drescher married boyfriend Shiva Ayyadurai, an MIT professor known for being the first person to hold a copyright for “EMAIL”, an electronic mail system he began building as a high school student in the early 1980s. Here’s how he popped the question.

My darling Franny,

This past year with you has been the best year of my life, even better than 1982, the year I invented email. Would you make me the happiest man in the world and be my wife?

thx

Oh darling, your laughter fills me with joy — I keep telling you though, you should really start using “LOL” instead of always typing out all the “ha”s. This would be a huge time saver for you. Trust me, I invented email.

So is that a yes re: the marriage?

Best,

oh shiva of course i’ll marry you!

does this mean we can start talking on the phone now? Or in person?! I love email but I feel like it shouldn’t be the only way we communicate as man and wife! Don’t you wanna hear my voice? ha-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhh

Mmm, let’s go ahead and stick with email for now…only because I invented it though, not because of anything having to do with your voice.

Hello. I am currently away from my office with limited access to email, something I invented. If this is an emergency, please contact my assistant, Josh, at Josh@email.com.

Sorry, my love. I had to run immediately to my workshop. I thought I had a new idea almost as good as email but it turns out Tinder already exists. Anyway, wanna get high and watch The Nanny on mute?
