Spam poetry

You know how spambots are starting to put random strings of words together in hopes of enticing you to actually open them? Or something?

This came to me as an ebay ad this morning:

"Where we can hardly laugh and drink all night with our oil filter.And avoid contact with the dark side of her fundraiser.Most widows believe that onlooker beyond make love to defined by vacuum cleaner.Mindy, the friend of Mindy and feels nagging remorse with defined by taxidermist.Unlike so many stalactites who have made their nearest football team to us."

It's kind of hypnotic.

Constantly, Mindy's stalactites reach my vacuum.
I get those ALL the TIME now, and I always want to save them, but the emails are always formatted so that I can't cut and paste the text into a document without doing all kinds of shenanigans, and I don't want to play with those emails too much in case they contain virii or in case clicking on them somehow transmits my IP address to MORE spammers. :-) But I LOVE the poetry they make. I wonder how it gets constructed...via some magnetic-poetry-bot? or by real humans?!

It's pure Pulitzer material.

I've been getting spams with mile-long subject lines, and little if any content.

What's up with that?

I have not had the pleasure of getting any of these wonderful e-mails, I'm not complaining.
