    A friend of mine created a lovely work of art — a poem composed entirely of spam subject lines. It ended, “See you soon, clitoris churchgoer.” *sigh* I wish I had had that idea first!

    hehehe… And you know that they think that you think that’s not spam… =)

    I pay attention at the “sender’s” name. They come up with such cool names… ‘Garyd Aceveda’, ‘Eustace Vigil’, ‘Herminia Colvin’… I mean, I have a weird name, but these guys… their names are awesome!

    I repeatedly receive spam at work almost every day at 3:00 pm from “Jesse Canonne” regarding “Farm Sluts”; and I know none of my friends are that creative!

    I once got spammed with posts from my own blog. Some crafty spammer was cutting and pasting to fool the filters. Talk about karma in action.

    My most recent favorite: “Bloated Nose-root Square Leaf!” Don’t forget the exclamation point! It’s important!That will surely make me open THAT particular piece of spam…

    I’ve been getting one in the last few days that has the subject “the possibility as a turnip or as an artichoke”. indeed, the possibility.

    Fridge poetry or some other sort of collage zaniness is an excellent idea for this.

    Yeah, I had to look it up too.

    Poor Catbird. First to find out that, contrary to the rest of your species, you have a navel and then to be immediately told that it’s tumorous.

    My favorite is:

    Black singles

    what? I’m single, how did they know? But black…I’m not. Why wouldn’t it say “Mexican singles” or “Mexi-white singles” or “Hey, you pathetic single!!?” The world may never know.
