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,

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 said…
mmm.... spam...

Nooter: This stuff can be ruff to digest.
Donnie 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.
Nick said…
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.
Chris 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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
