IVP - Strangely Dim - Spam of the Year

Spam of the Year

I got an e-mail today that I'd like to nominate for Spam of the Year. It's artful with just a hint of dementia, and it contains no vulgarities or sales pitches for mortgage refinancing or body enhancement. There's probably some kind of viral worm coursing through my computer as I type this, but this spam may be worth it to me.

If you think you have something better, feel free to post a comment. Just keep it clean, is all I ask.

In the middle of the night, I was walking by the sea, and baby baluga jumped out from amongst the bushes. SO one day Mr. Gregor exclaimed "Why do skater normals have no preppy either?!?!?!" So I wanted to watched. or Maybe if I wanted to watch it then I had a dream that countless historian lost their credit but i dont Remember what it was. I don't like you but can I have your autograph. No one wants your autograph so I started to cry in the pizza shop. Where did Ryan go? He must have moved to Ohio.

If you know where Ryan went, let us all know. Thanks!

E-mail from my friend Al:

This may not be as profound as the spam you cited on Strangely Dim,
but it's not bad.

Change is inevitable. In a progressive country change is constant. Once
harm has been done, even a fool understands it. I now have no time to be
tired.
