Spam can be fun

My friend Kent who I met at the library just began a blog in which he reposts noteworthy spam. I am very much a fan already, as his first post truly captures the beauty of a well-written spam email. A blog like this can transfer the frustration and eye-rolls expressed upon receipt of spam to wonderful laughter and celebration of this crazy world in which we live.

In this new light, I revisited my Spam mailbox. My favorite that was caught in its web was just brilliant:

Sorry dear friend, you’ll have to go at this new venture alone, and gosh am I sorry to forgo this amazing opportunity. Please forgive me in the form of giving me your bank account number to treasure always.

Then there’s always stuff like this, that people on the internet crazily figure out ways to see past. (Typos? Where? Exclusivity? Good thing they sent this only to 3 others…whew! Promises of internet fame? AWESOME!)


I, of course, love it, and feel thrilled that no longer will this phenomenal comedy on sincerity steroids be relegated to the murky depths of the oft-emptied spam folder. Thanks, Kent, for the blog spam. I’ll take it.
