What Do I Have For Breakfast While Reading My E-Mails?

Dear:
AhmedHassan
Azeem Igwedo
Joy Mgobo
Sarah Kamel (aka The Princess)
...and the 437 Other Esteemed Members Of My Spam Folder

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to correspond with me. I am very grateful you have picked me to offer among other things:

a) the winning e-mail address in your fictitious but multi-million dollar lottery
b) a larger penis
c) your hand in i)friendship, ii)marriage iii) an illicit long distance homosexual relationship
d) graphic design services
e) the latest post from moooooog (HOW DID HE GET IN HERE?)
f) a foreign partnership in exchange for my bank account number
g) unclaimed cheque at UPS
h) to close down my Yahoo e-mail account unless I supply all my personal information including password
i) waiting for my URGENT response
j) 50% of the life savings of some woman from Ireland who lives in Africa (or vice-versa) with ovarian cancer who has "two days to leave"
k) 23 year-old Miss Chistiana from Guinea, Bissau who would "really appreciate if we can click together as one great lovers"
l) close to 400 entreaties from Ouagadougou Burkina Faso West Africa, the spam factory capital of the world, each offering me millions of dollars in return for me helping them get their money out of the country.

I'm overwhelmed by your largess and offers of friendship and untold riches. Alas, I am married...to a woman...and have all the riches I need to be happy and content, including a reasonably sized penis. Or so I've been told.

So please, please you useless piece of pestilent poop (except you Moooooog) stop clogging up the interwebs, and my e-mail in baskets with your useless and time-wasting drivel.

And NO we can't still be friends.

Yours in spamness,

nonamedufus

Busy packaging up my Spam to ship it back to the Vikings!
So this is what you came up with after yesterday's writer's block? This is it?!!? Okay, I guess, it will do. :) Nice addition with mooooog. Next time: use reference to me and it will be even better.

CatLady: Okay. He, welcome aboard HBDC!

UR: Actually I wrote a post for my political satire blog. The Slings And Arrows piece was much better. This was all I had left.

I noticed that my posts get dumped to my spam folder, too.

I should probably stop trying to give away millions with my V!agr@ enhanced giant penises from Nigeria.

Nah.

Always write Nigerians back to screw with them.

Ha!

Yep, I suspect moooog IS a spammer in disguise.

And could do me a solid? Respond to the money offers and then bestow on....oh, I don't know...

ME?

hee hee

moooooog: My bad. I shifted your e-mails to my spam box. hee, hee. Already got yo n my blogroll.

Canadu: You got it, Pontiac.

Quirks: I would do anything for love, but I won't do that.

Nooter: This stuff can be ruff to digest.
Don said…
I'm overwhelmed by your largess... See? Right off the bat I read "largess" as "large ass". Must be the heat down here.
Anyway, Spam keeps better in the fridge. At least moooooog's does. K-9 crap you know?
nonamedufus said…
Don: Large ass, yeah that's a good one. Not that I'd be slighting any female Nigerian spammers now.

You know, if it wasn't for the South, we wouldn't have spam or home shopping channels...

What Nooter said and I think my cat ate some. He's farting again.
I'm a first time visitor from Cleveland. I saw your link on Dani's (Mom's Crazy Life) site and decided to click-through.

And I'm already loving your blog. Your message to the spammers had me cracking up. Just my kind of humor! I think I won one of those lotteries this morning as well.

I'll visit back for sure. Thanks...

Nick: Same thing. The HSC lets Joan Rivers on there very second day to hawk her jewelry

RG: Oh, poor you. I hate when that happens.

Constant Complainer from Cleveland: Nice alliteration. Hey, glad you found me and enjoy our take on things here. Look forward to having you back.
Knucklehead said…
Way to go, Dufus! You let 'em have it, the damn spammers!

"reasonably sized?"
nonamedufus said…
DK: Well, I don't wanna brag, but...
You're surprised that moooooog's post ended up in your junk e-mail folder? That surprises me.

Oh, wait. This is the week we roast mooooog. Sorry.

MikeWJ: Actually, I kept getting so many Blog Caltalog broadcasts from Moooooog I started filing them in my spam box until they just automatically would go there! Totally forgot to check until I researched this post - haha.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
