Deer Doctor -- Unintentionally hilarious crackpots

Like everybody who has been around in scientific circles for a while, I get a large amount of e-mails from crackpots. Often times, it is about some kind of revolutionary theory that invalidates General Relativity or explains what happens before the Big Bang. At other times, it is people like Jess Ragaza, who is on a one-man mission to save the Earth from global warming and solar flares and thinks that he needs to spam thousands of people with his personal personal proceedings via mailing lists they never signed up to. I am usually saddened by such e-mails; I can't help these people.

Today, though, I received an amazing e-mail that made my day:

Deer doctor:
       I wander to know something about nuclear fusion,is that mabY,in some condition 
two deuteron both get or lose one electron ,then they dash 
each other on high speed,fusion will  happen? 
 
                   your Sincerely, 
                    XX XX (redacted)
