Poll

So, following on from the popularity of Angolan Spam post, and the wonderful other spams shared in the comments , it occurs to me to wonder if there would be a niche for compiling and getting published The Anthology of Internet Spam

And I'm going to use my nifty paid member options to make a poll about it.

Poll #343930 Spam, Wonderful Spam

Does compiling an Anthology of Spam sound like a good idea?

Yes! Go to at once!
2(15.4%)
No! Repent and Desist!
1(7.7%)
Perhaps.
2(15.4%)
I have no opinion on Spam but just wanted to tell you that you're pretty.
5(38.5%)

I'd be amazed if there isn't something like this on the web. But then I'm easily amazed...

How about... Am-I-Spam-Or-Not?

People have to guess which e-mails are real spam, and which are parodies, satires, or otherwise fake spam.

e.g.:
Dear Sirs,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Walter Pseudonym, son of the late British Government Representative Ariel Pseudonym. As you may recall, he was cruelly murdered by al-Asqan terrorists whilst travelling to a World Harmonisation Organisation meeting upon paperclip standardisation in Auckland, Australia, some months ago.

As a result of this, I have recently come into possession of a broadband-capable PC. However, there is a catch. In order to fulfill its potential it requires a broadband connection from the British monopoly supplier British Telemachinations Plc. Owing to their monopoly status, they can charge a price of their choosing and they have chosen a monthly fee of twice the price of your home and an annual sacrifice of four lambs. As I am a poor ex-student I am unable to afford even to live in a home and recently had to slaughter my last goat in order not to starve.

I am offering you...

Re: a spam for verlaine!
“A spam for verlaine” sounds uncomfortably like “A song for Europe”, with all the boom-boom-bangabang that implies. I’d better shut up before that thought gets any further.

i cheated and voted two answers, the one that was my opinion (yes!go at once!) and the option which sounded prettiest (i have no opinion on spam...) just to clear my conscience..... :-p

I'll put you in charge of coming up with the advertising jingle.
