Spam Forty-Three: Delayed By Laziness

MANY APOLOGIES FOR LEAVING YOU CHART-LESS for so long. I was out of town for over two weeks and...um...there were no Interwebs where I went. That’s possible, right? Sure, that was it. I couldn’t get in to the Googler and it was difficult to blodge. It was terrible. It was like Neanderthal times...or the ‘80s.

But you’ll be glad to know that spam never sleeps. Like that tree in the forest that falls when no one is around, the spam keeps flowing into my inbox whether I count it or not. This week’s wonders included the return of “Hoariness on the salmon!” An odd image that either indicates a boner that is not big enough or a boner that is finally the proper size to “jazz it with the ladies.” Whatever the case, I haven’t been told (warned?) of my potential (impending?) hoariness since Week 13.

This week also marked the debut of two really curious spam categories: Your Internet Access Is Going to Get Suspended (#25) and Selling Fresh Base Info (#22). The former claimed that it had been conducting “regular wiretapping” on its networks and then wend on to say “[We] strongly advise you to stop your activities regarding the illegal downloading of copyrighted material of your internet access will be suspended.” If I wanted proof of this illegal activity, all I had to do was open the conveniently attached zip file. The latter was a price list for what appeared to be stolen credit cards. Very weird on both accounts, but….welcome to the Chart, new friends!

Also, new to the Chart an email with the subject line of “Bitch!” that only contained a zip file titled “Bitch!”

While Some Celebrity Sex Related Link or Zip File is in drastic decline, after peaking at 101 emails just three weeks ago it now manages a meager 5, the good news is Fucktube Is Back (#22). So make sure to order your “welcome back, Fucktube” ice cream cakes from Baskin Robbins early. Those things sell out quick.

I don’t read the Chart...the Chart reads me.

I've started doing Topsy's popcorn tins instead of ice cream cakes. I know it's not REALLY healthier...it just FEELS helpful.
