    I have a sneaking suspicion of the cartoon you're thinking of, but
I must ask,  was the _email_ entitled "Why men don't talk to women."
or was the actual cartoon given that title?

I'm quite sure it was the name of the cartoon... A stick-figure man
keeps going up to different women to say "Hi," or ask them out, and
horrible things happen, like his head gets bitten off, or he gets
quartered with a chainsaw. It's actually very funny...

    You're actually thinking of a short done by Don Hertzfeldt titled
'Ah, L'Amour.'   Mr. Hertzfeldt (I think, but the site is currently
down till July) should have the  'Ah, L'Amour' clip available on DVD. 
 He's also come out with quite a few other offbeat animation bits, and
won quite a bit of awards for them.  You can find, and should be able
to buy his works here .

At the end of 'Ah L'Amour' as you remembered, Mr. Hertzfeldt thanks
his 'Good Friend Caffeine'.   Good stuff.

You can find a copy of the actual short here:

I love his work.  I've seen most of his shorts entirely too many times
to count, and I seriously reccomend them to anyone with a sense of
humor.   'Rejected' is my personal fav, so for an added bonus, I
include a link:

Hope you enjoy them! 


Search Strategy:  

For Ah L'Amour:  lamour.asf or ahlamour.asf 

For Rejected:  rejected.avi in google.
