At Least The Spam is Amusing

I know I've mentioned this before but it never fails to crack my ass up. And I say this with the full knowledge that it might be funny only to me. Because, well, I discovered not long ago that I was sitting here in PJs that were inside out. I might not be the wittiest, most reliable, shapest pencil in the drawer right about now. Anyway, I was combing through my spam box this morning and the names absolutely slay me. Shilling D. Shanghaii wants me to see some "seksy firsttimers" while Bacterial J. Gatepost just has some plain old generic information. Esteeming K. Mistrusts one ups Gatepost by providing "new information" - take that! Brunettes Q. Outspokenly wants to provide some alert function and Implementations B. Narrator has all kinds of good Windows software for me really darn cheap! He's in stiff competition with Mutilation M. Hullabaloo, Unclothing U. Della and Bibliographer I. Libertarians I have options. And if all that stresses me out, well, there's Sonja Harding (relative of Tonya's perhaps?) who's offering me a proven party solution, whatever that is.

All-in-all, I guess I shouldn't talk. I mean, I am a guy writing under the name Rude Cactus after all...

You should somehow incorporate those names into you merchandising slogan. LOL

It's really funny to me, too. I need to go look through my bulk mail and see who's writing me.

I do that PJ inside out thing as well. Except I usually go to Wal Mart and back before I realize it.

I'm getting terribly sick of all the spam I get. I think some of your spammers like me too. They're freaking annoying!

Posted by: Queen of Ass at August 1, 2005 12:44 PM spam for me. Maybe I should take on a swarthier name! But what? ;)

Hope you are enjoying your time with Mia!

Your spammers have fantastic names! Can't you just see those up in lights at your local drag show? Or at the Westminster dog show? How about the racetrack, those poor horses always have totally bizzare names.

This is weird, because I went around the first half of the work-day today with my shirt on INSIDE.OUT! And either no one noticed or they were too polite to embarrass me by telling me "Your shirt is on inside-out you jackass." And I don't even have a newborn at home to blame for lack of sleep - I am just a bleary-eye non-morning person!

Those spam names are curious. Why do they choose names like those?

What gets me is when they want me to enhance body parts I don't even own! And the names are just so inventive

I can't seem to shake this spammer name Fishbane. Is that a distant gaelic cousin to Beth Fish?
