Your daily dose of spamfun...

Jin Shei Cover from sgreer
From my spam filters today, in order of appearance:

"Hi, we want to give you $591!" - well, that's nice. I suppose you need my bank account details and my SSN for that. I'll get right on it.

"Keep an eye on things." - I am, thanks ever so. That's why this message was in the spam bin.

"Dear Alma, Laser Eye Surgery from $17.34 a month..." - that's to help me keep an eye on things...? (Oh, and I love teh PRECISION of it... beautiful... calculated that to the cent, did you...?)

"IF YOU DON'T READ THIS NOW YOU'LL HATE YOURSELF LATER" - you know, cookie, there's a logical fallacy to this one you might want to explore. If I don't "read this now" I don't know what is in it - and therefore there is little reason for any specific regrets in the aftermath. I may hate myself for spilling my coffee over my keyboard or forgetting to take the garbage out on garbage day but I sincerely doubt that those reasons will have had anything at all to do with my not having read your oh-so-important missive. Bzzzt. Try that again, why don't you?

"The DANGERS of too much exercise" - eh. knew that. 's why I'm sitting here with my butt in my chair. I don't want to put myself in danger, do I, now?

"IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!" - agreed. Cheers.

I know. I am wasting precious time on these things. But am I the only one who sometimes finds spam utterly hysterical....?

I'm slightly weirded out by the idea of laser eye surgery being a monthly service. Also by the idea of basic laser eye surgery vs. lots of add-on features.

you are not, and I am quite pleased (though not terribly surprised) to learn I'm not the only one who has conversations with my junk mail folder lol

I never looked at it like that, before! But you're right; it's hysterical. :-)
