52 Weeks of Spam: Winners, Week of January 30

Winners, Week of January 30:

It would be nice to talk to yoU!

Wanna have some romantic relationships with a cute girl? I’m a yummy blonde, and I’ll be happy to start our correspondence!

Apparently, I sent this to myself so I’d be sure to remember to contact this woman. She’s yummy, after all, and I wouldn’t want to miss a good time!

Everybody hates Spam—it fills up your Inbox (unless you’ve got G-mail, which does a great job of putting it in an appropriately-labeled folder), clogs your blog (WordPress does a great job filtering, too), and can threaten your computer’s security.

I have to say though, I love my Spam. It cracks me up—it’s poorly spelled, illiterate, and often leaves me wondering who would be dumb enough to click on the link for whatever product/service/lottery winning from mysterious relative in a country you’ve never heard of. So I decided in 2012 I’d go through my Spam each week and pick my favorites to share with the world. I remove the sender and any links that might be damaging (plus, who wants to give them press?).

See you next week! If you get any great Spam, you can post it here, just strip any links and the sender’s e-mail. And be sure to say something in the post to let me know you’re real. Otherwise I might think you’re…well, Spam.
