Seriously. I mean, the spam that I get through my various email accounts (penile implants! Nigerian millions!) are nothing–NOTHING–compared with the originality of the spam that gets caught in my WordPress spam filter.
Lest you think I’m joking, let’s take a look at a few random samples, shall we? Like the comment, “If you wrote an article about life we’d all reach enilgthment (sic)” I’m not sure what that is, but I’m pretty sure I don’t want to reach it. Or “If my problem was a Death Star, this article was a pothon torpedo.”
At least they know I’m a Star Wars fan. And a Star Trek fan. But let’s not mix ’em, okay?
And, of course, there’s the ever popular: “I thoghut (sic) I’d have to read a book for a discovery like this!” (All the more ironic since the particular post to which the spam was attached was, you know, about one of my books. Ahem.)
At least the spammers are complimentary. Did you know that my blog has more useful information than the British had colonies pre-WWII? No, really, it’s true! Just ask my friendly spambot!
How about y’all? Got any favorite bits of spam to share?
And, because it’s so very relevant, here’s a clip from Spamalot! (One of my favorite musicals, and David Hyde Pierce is amazing!)
