SPAM

Ahhhh....SPAM.
That gelatinous brick of pork product, affordable, yet mysterious.

Then there's 'the other kind' of spam.
I had 6 spam comments on one post recently.  Thought I'd share them with you:

"Thank You for looking at this website. Please allow me to have the possibility to show my satisfaction with acid reflux..." 
(thanks, but no thanks)

"The income concerning the sandals show how effective these shoes can be"
(sandals are nice, I guess....)

"You pretty much said what i could not effectively communicate"
(I was talking about buttons in a jar.)

"Activities variety a key part of each of our lifestyle many businesses are linked throughout creating sophisticated and also critical sporting activities garments"
(talk about effective communication...)

"Este pensamiento tiene que justamente a propisito"
(Este say what?!)

"el pensamiento Desgraciado"
(I know what you mean. I don't care for green olives either.)

 So I wonder how much time people spend spamming? Are they getting paid for it?  Are they sitting crammed in dimly lit basements with tinfoil over the windows hunched over their laptops shoving nose spray up their nose every five minutes letting out evil snort-laughs every time they hit "POST"?  I just don't get it.  I'll take the gelatinous brick of mysterious pork product any day over this stuff!

Oh Girlfriend, I laughed so hard at your "vision" of the spam operation that tears almost rolled down my leg!! That's hilarious!! But, I agree, the product, not so much. Wow - 6 on one post, hey? And my cranky meter was spiked by the guy from Nigeria who keeps leaving comments asking me to click on his site so he can earn money for tuition! Wishing you a beautiful, spmaless, day! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

AHH! SPAM the kind you eat stands for SOMETHING POSING AS MEAT.
The other spam stands for SNEAKY, PATHETIC AND MINDLESS.
Watch out for those people.
They will do anything to sell a product. Just check your e mail and comment sections and report as spam. I don't like spam of any kind. If I can't identify it I don't want it.

I always think of them as being deranged prisoners desperate for contact with the real world. And I'm with Amy . . . I gotta' pass on the canned spam too!

Very funny Lisa - but not funny at the same time. These people obviously have nothing else to do with their time...it is sad really...so far I haven't received any spam, canned or otherwise.

Hugs dear

I thought Blogger had a new filter that was automatically supposed to prevent those kind of comments from being posted? Sheesh!

I got my first spam comment on my Blog last night. (Man against American women please go to the link for Indian brides.) Really they have so little to do. As for email spam....I'm not sure I need Viagra or bits enlarged, did I lose my ticket for the Nigerian, Irish, English lottery and Russian brides really aren't my thing? The delete button is a wonderful thing.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that gets all that junk! Love to get the ones written in Chinese!!!
Onto the other spam ~ I have to laugh I haven't had that since I was a young girl ~ don't know if I really want to try it again, I feel a belly ache coming on!!!
Prim Blessings
