I HAS A FAN! (Somewhere…..)

A few months ago, I was going through my spam filter for this site and found a gem.

I really do need to delete it, but I can’t resist: I’m going to publish it here today.

Just desire to say your article is as astonishing.
The clearness in your publish is simply spectacular and
that i can assume you’re a professional on this subject. Fine with your permission allow me to clutch your feed to keep up to date with drawing close post. Thank you a million and please continue the gratifying work. tinnitus

Several things caught my fancy.

First, I actually do have tinnitus. I’ve had it all my life. I was six when I realized nobody else could “hear” power lines ringing like I could.

Second, I love someone asking my permission to “clutch my feed…”

Last, I have to admit, this person writes better English than I would ever write in their native language.

Still, it’s spam, and it’s gotta go.

But take a moment to enjoy.

And I hope you enjoy my efforts to continue my gratifying work.

  1. Be sure to stay for the credits–it’s worth it!

  2. That was a good chuckle, Luann. MP was a fixture during my teen years (Dad was a huge fan).

    I guess spam is the price we must pay for the privilege of publishing. For some odd reason my most frequent spam hits are from Egypt (and in Arabic), so I have to wonder…

    Oh Luann! The tinnitus issue is a real pain. Like you I didn’t realize the constant ringing/buzzing etc. wasn’t normal! Thanks for sharing this spam response! It’s a hoot!

  4. This post makes me want to clutch your feed.

  5. I think that fan is one of mine as well! I love the little idiosyncrasies in our language. ‘Clutch your feed’ is a fun new one! I hope that is all they are clutching! I used to keep a little journal of funny spam lines. They read like a cheap romance novel. Thanks for sharing that! Enjoy the day. Erin

    What a hoot! AT least you’re getting positive feedback! :<p

  7. Well, I misread it at first as “clutch your feet”, which seemed a little out of context, even for this message!
