|Doesn’t this look so too much like Elliot Spitzer?|
For reasons too mysterious to mention, I am in catch up mode and have no time to be clever or intelligent today. However, with the help of my spam file, I can try to be funny. I read in the Old Grey Lady a few months back that spammers have stopped kicking out routine messages by spambot, and instead have hired real people to roam through blogs leaving links to their wares.
Indeed, the quality of spam has changed in the past few months. It is friendlier and more conversational. It tries to relate to the topic of the post, and — despite the fact that it is authored by people names “Viagra Online,” “Moscow Apartment” or “Cupcake,”it has the sweet quality of an entry level person in a non-Anglophone country who is practicing hir English in hopes of one day immigrating or upgrading to a better job doing online tech support for Dell.
So without further ado, I present to you my favorite comments for the month of May that are attempting to sell you stuff you would never buy (like apartments in Russia that don’t really exist.) The Spammies fpr the month of May go to:
Viagra Online, for: ”I remember that in high school that in the five years never missed a class, she even gave the class sick, that is what I call love to the work.”
kamagra, for: “many was the action during her life, and the legacy she leave in this world, for that reason we have to remember her and honored all the time, thank you Del Martin.”
Generic Viagra, for: ”I don’t want to be unpolite, so I just gonna say something simple, the only thing that deserve a man who is violent against a women, is to be castrato, and in this way see if is so superior after this.”
Star, for: ”Stanley Fish is just an idealist, his ideas to save the world is complete crap I prefer viagra online instead.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. (Follow that link for an old favorite that won’t permit embedding.)
