Best

My computer at work has been moved onto a new server, and as a result I've lost most of my personalised settings on my email. The most notable change is that messages which the system identifies as spam are no longer automatically routed to my spam file, but instead pop up in my inbox.


I was living in blissful ignorance about the amount of spam I'm receiving... until now. Sheesh!


The interesting thing is that the computer will flag most suspect emails as spam, but one entitled "Ears Drum Sex Clown Leather Jacket Finger Slave" sailed through without notice. You'd think the "sex" might have set off some sort of alarm, but apparently not.


To be honest, I think it might be the best spam title ever! Individually the words aren't terribly interesting, but put them all together and frankly it sounds like the world's most impossibly specific porn:


Customer: I'd like some porn, please, with a woman in a clown costume with a drum and enormous ears, with a hand model in a leather jacket who is her slave.

Pornographer: Well, I can do you a woman in a clown costume with a drum and enormous ears, with a hand model in a leather jacket who is on a more or less equal footing with her. Would that do?

Customer: Ewww, no! That's not a turn on at all! What's wrong with you people!?

I saw the words "leather jacket" and thought of wasps. Painful porn!

The most recent spam to make me chuckle was titled:

LET:account,password,shop,did you forget?,are you forget?,why are are forget?,damn you forget

I love the drama. The rising tension, the crisis, climax, and release. The Iliad for our times.
