For a very long time, I used to get upset when I'd received email spam. I kept thinking, How did they get my email? Why are they sending me this stuff? Did they sell my email to a spam list?
Since getting upset is a waste of time and burns unnecessary energy, I decided to look for the humor in it. Some of the subject lines these people come up with are hilarious. I mean, do they actually pay people in a foreign country to write these "catchy" phrases or what?
For over a year now, my good friend MaryJo Wagner and I send a Skype message to each other every morning for the funniest spam subject we get. We laugh and carry on for a good 5 minutes. Believe it or not, spam starts my day with a chuckle.
Now, the comment spammers are getting more creative... For example, just today I got two comments on my blog and they didn't even make it in my "Spam" folder. Instead they got put under "Pending."
1) Author: Get Rid of Wrinkles. Comment: There was a power outage at a department store yesterday. Twenty people were trapped on the escalators.
2) Author: Wrinkle Cream. Comment: If a word in the dictionary were misspelled, how would we know?
Honestly, where do they come up with this stuff? Good thing I moderate my comments! How about you?
It's always better to laugh than cry
