Spam, Wonderful Spam
Lately the spammers have been incorporating lots of unusual subject lines, in a desperate attempt to attract attention of any sort. Usually they're nothing special, but this one from "Meuris Borfate" really tickled me:
"Rosie-Trump Feud Moves Doomsday Clock Closer to Midnight."I've gotta say, I just love that one, and the name is a wonderful bonus. Way to go, "Meuris," wherever you are.
Not that I read the note, mind you.
It would just be too anticlimactic after that delightful opening to see another pitch for instant degrees from "prestigous, non-accredited universities" or a plea for help from a desperate Nigerian with lots of money. I did keep the note on the Barracuda for now, though, so who knows, maybe I'll weaken. I have been looking for some good investment advice from anonymous strangers...
Update: Our friend, PTG, points out there is an actual article on Yahoo News with that title. It's hilarious, too: Rosie-Trump. So we withdraw our kudos to "Meuris" and extend them to Andy Borowitz.
