Spam by any other name

I probably get an average of about 150 spam comments per day. Some days more, some less. Fortunately, the spam filter catches them all, but I thought it was sort of a shame that these hard working spam bots never get their chance at publication here on my blog.

Why, some of them are downright poetic:

Are grateful for present superior knowledges
Your website is definitely fine
I am stunned at the data you which you have

Thanks for Lunch by Tory Burch Handbags

Excellent read
Just passed it on to a colleague
He actually bought me lunch
Because I found it for him (Smile)
So let me rephrase that
Thanks for lunch!

Stay on Topic by Spectral DC

Can we get back on topic please?
Everything seems to have gotten off the subject.
Some of these comments are unbelievable.

(Okay, that one could actually be a real comment.)

So how about you? Have any interesting spam comments lately?

    I’m jealous. I haven’t gotten any comments in Russian yet.

  2. Larry Hehn February 27, 2011 at 10:26 pm #

    That Russian comment is quite interesting – it has something to do with prostitutes. (Thank you, freetranslation.com!) And a haiku, too? Darn, I should be reading more of my spam comments before I delete them. You have a great eye for stuff like that, Kathy. Thanks for showing that with the proper frame, even spam can become art!

    That’s pure genius – turning spam into poetry.

    My personal blog is on Blogger; I administer two blogs on WordPress — and I have to say that WordPress is vastly more accepting of spam than Blogger.

    You did it. You went and created a post with spam comments. These are hilarious. I get some doozies, too. But I NOW CROWN YOU AS SPAM QUEEN.

    150 a day is a lot.

    I posted about the car e-book spam a couple of weeks ago.

    You know what irks me? Why is unwanted email named after delicious luncheon meat? It should be called friend liver without onions!

    • Helen February 28, 2011 at 12:49 pm #

      Oooops… I meant fried liver without onions.
      I would never eat a friend’s liver, with or without onions.

  6. A Simple Country Girl February 28, 2011 at 9:20 am #

    Well, I never…

    I take personal offense to that last can of spam.

    (I bet my can of Whoop is bigger than his/her can of spam.)

      Anybody who comments on THIS blog taking umbrage at the fact that we get off topic has no idea what this blog is about!
      Kathy LOVES it when we get off topic. It cracks her up!

      • A Simple Country Girl February 28, 2011 at 11:00 am #

        Please don’t use such big words this early, miss Helen. Umbrage. What is that? An umbrella for the aged? What were we talking about? That’s right. Kathy has cracked something and needs some glue. Have you heard of gorilla glue? Me, I’m a duct tape and baling twine sort of gal. Gorilla glue, maybe if one works in a zoo.

        Mister “Stay on Topic,” my comment train may have gone done and jumped the track, but I am taking Helen with me so take that! 😉

        • Helen February 28, 2011 at 12:44 pm #

          Duct tape…. Ahh…. the memories…… 🙂

          My daddy used to wrap duct tape around leaky pipes before going to the hardware store and getting new pipes…..

    Like I don’t get enough of this poetry in my own inbox I have to come read it on your site? Have you been hanging with Charlie Sheen?

    Lately, I’ve been getting hundreds of spams from someone wanting me to buy shower trays from the UK. I don’t know what kind of soap caddies the Brits use, but they must be really awesome for them to pour so much attention on me!

    • katdish February 28, 2011 at 10:17 am #

      Sweet Fancy Moses! The shower tray people are EVERYWHERE! What’s a shower tray, anyway?

      • A Simple Country Girl February 28, 2011 at 10:54 am #

        don’t you know?

        some eat breakfast in bed
        – on breakfast trays.
        some eat dinner in the living room
        – on TV trays.
        the brits must must eat their mid-day mush
        – while they shower!

        • Helen February 28, 2011 at 12:45 pm #

          We should definitely ask Peter Pollock about that! 🙂

    “Lemon tonic dating service”

    Sounds like a bad Seattle grunge band from 1994.

  10. seekingpastor February 28, 2011 at 1:14 pm #

    I’ve had some that mentioned how big and happy I am. Which is true. I am big and normally happy. So at least they had something right.

    • Helen February 28, 2011 at 1:44 pm #

      I’m big and happy, too, but I’ll find and sock any spammer who tells me so!

  11. Kathleen February 28, 2011 at 1:25 pm #

    The hot water situation in the UK is a disaster and so frustrating that you need to have some servicable spot for shower accoutrements – edible or non. Have mercy on them at least.

  12. Michael February 28, 2011 at 1:54 pm #

    The best one lately said something along the lines that they completely disagreed with what I wrote and was going to write a rebuttal on their site. And that I should follow the link.

    His name was Viagra Guy.

  13. Kirsten February 28, 2011 at 4:28 pm #

    ’tis a sign of a quality blog when your commenters make me laugh {almost} as much as the post. I should be so classy, to get haiku spam.

  14. JasonS March 1, 2011 at 8:18 pm #

    Too funny. Yeah I like the ones that sound like they could be real then you read there’s 15 more that say the exact same them. Busted. Thanks for the laugh, Kat.
