Spam - and I ain't talking meat here

I find it fascinating the spam email that hits my box on a regular basis

I have won multiple contests
I have several people refer to me as 'dear'
I have offers in languages that I can't read
Strangers want my help
Someone thinks I speak something other than English
I need to buy gold
Apparently I have a friend named Ahmed - and he wanted to let me know it was him!
I even have an offer for a larger p**** "like a girl".  Pretty sure girls don't have those, just dudes.

It never ceases to amaze me what crap hits that folder.  And quite frankly it bugs the ever-loving heck outta me!

Don't call me dear.
Don't tell me I've won a contest
Don't ask me for my help if you have a name that I can't even pronounce
Don't hawk gold to me.  I have Glenn Beck for that.
I don't know anyone named Ahmed - unless he is the new dude at the sev that was there this morning in his turban.
I speak English.  That's it.  Unless you count some occasional piglatin and teenage-ese.
And I for SURE don't need a larger P****.  Serio.

Let's not even start on the spam that hits the ol blogger.  But just to keep everyone happy, I took the WV off.  And now I am paying for it.  All kinds of shitake mushroom crapola pops up. 

At least I can laugh at it, right?

Well Em, I don't know what sites you hang out at.....BUT you should prolly change your evil ways baby. (name that tune?)
I haven't had WV forever.

My emails aren't that much fun either. You are so lucky.

It can be quite entertaining. Especially if you decide to answer some of those emails.
