Welcome to the Spamfiles

Mwa-ha! I took over Liz’s blog for the day for some blatant self-promotion, the kind so flagrant I can’t do it on my own blog. Why it’s okay on someone else’s blog I have no idea, but that logic problem is a whole different can of worms.

I’m here to talk about spam. Not the ground up pieces of pigs left over after they finish butchering but the kind you get in the mail enticing you to buy V1gara pills from a Canadian "Pharmacy". In other words, things like this…

The summation of all spam.

And this…

I have a daughter now?

Not to mention…

That's not how brainwashing works.
All actual items caught by my email’s spam filter. It’s like looking at the world through a lens of madness. Lose eleven pounds in one week and don’t die of dehydration/starvation! Proper blog drainageIndelible Gamechanger!

I don’t know what it means. I just think it sounds interesting. Like it might have something to do with video games.

Some people were born to craft tomes to change the world. I was born to laugh at spam. I’m surprisingly okay with this.

So that’s my pitch. I hope you come visit me at my blog and especially at the Spamfiles. And if you ever check your spam filter and find a piece of insanity tucked in there, or maybe you see an ad that seems like it’s spam someone was paid to post, go ahead and forward it. I will find it AWESOME.

  1. I often find spam amusing, but creepy too sometimes.


I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.
