Thread: Favorite Spam Mail Headers or Messages

  1. #1

    Default Favorite Spam Mail Headers or Messages

    These can be quite profound and/or complex. I always check just in case. This is not the best, but it arrived today and made me think (a lot more than most contemporary literature ever does):

    Come boldly and see how we fucked - REMEMBER?

    Whats with all the 'Get RIPPED in 4 weeks!' spam thats going around at the minute? Well embarrassing when I'm using a proxy site at work to check Dissensus and someone looks over your shoulder.

    Depends on whether you will be RIPPED in 4 weeks or not?

    And what do they mean by "RIPPED"?

    And why "4 weeks"?

    Isn't that, like, a month or something?

    Baffling. Scary.

    Great thread!

    They've kinda got boring recently, but there was a golden era where spam mail titles were like surreal haikus or something. I also remember a lot of questions like "Is this what some women do to horses?"

    A small selection from my gmail account's Spam folder:

    High love temperament at any age

    I'll still love you, come to me, I'm in a hotel!

    OLLIE, Learn Massage Therapy!

    Energetic boost for your desire! Because all men want their lever to go up!

    )I came to your town and there's nothing I do not know, for a walk?

    Erase your man troubles.


    And that's just from the first page.

    I have nonsense spam filler text to thank for blessing my vocabulary with the delightful 'katzenjammer', which literally means 'the yowling of cats' but is also German slang for a really stinking hangover. Great word.

    I had one a few years ago that read:

    Everybody loves someone - even you

    I am still unpacking that.

    It's true that they're not quite as inventive as the 2003-5 Golden Age when we got spam mail surrealist word montages every day. Word generators, I guess, but they were gorgeous. Such Art just to sell Viagra!

    Yeah, computer programs autogenerating weird dadaist Beat poetry to flog Viagra and porn - it's kind of a masterstroke of postmodernism.

    All very 1992. It's an Arthur Kroker orgasm.

    Yes, unless it was long-sleeved and had Ned's Atomic Dustbin written down the arms.
