Tasty Tasty Spam!

Here is some I just got today from Quitina Lyer, gotta love a spammer with a sense of humor:

To Jeff

Thank you for your previous application for a role with RockJones Management.

Before processing your application further, you are required to finish an Online Application. This must be finished within the next one week to ensure your submission to be considered for roles with RockJones Management.

To commence the assessment -

- Log in at http://digg.com/u1X4Na
- Select "Start Screening" link

Please note - This Application invitation is only valid for 1 week. Then the Assessment link will no longer appear. Your application with RockJones Management will not be given consideration until the Online Application has been completed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

- You must complete the Online Application in one session - allow approximately 2 minutes for completion.
- Please know that we recently added an extra component to the application. If you have completed the Internal Application lately you will still be required to complete this latest step prior to be considered further in the RockJones Management Recruitment procedure.

Yours sincerely,
RockJones Management

The only Spam that I like is when it's fried and covered with a maple syrup ginger glaze and cooked over a campfire when I'm out hunting. Almost anything tastes good when it's cooked over a campfire.

I love these. Many times I have responded with questions that hopefully are convincing enough to the "spammer" that they will start a dialogue with me. I then drag it out over as long of a period as I can get away with. Normally I pose as a "brain surgeon" and am able to travel to their country to conduct the transaction in person, at which point I am referred to a 'more authorised person' to deal with. These spammers can be a deep source of entertainment if you know how to appear gullible enough to them.

You didn't read the "almost" part of my reply.

Boooo! I thought this was a post about Spam cuisine. Booooo!

However, I did get a chuckle from some spam email today though. Spammer actually composed the email with the title "Spam: blah blah product blah blah blah." At least they were honest....

Now were is my Spam musubi!?!?! I'd settle for some fried Spam and eggs....

If I had to choose between eating Spam and eating old boots, I'd choose the old boots! (If they were cooked, of course).

Awsome on a campfire and also fried while sailing on a cool west coast winter. I liked the canned Danish bacon as well. All good in the right context!

I though the only way to cook Spam was to punch a few holes in the top of the can, duct tape it to an engine block, and then go drive for about a hundred and ten miles.

You can stop a few times and shake some Pete's Hot Sauce in the holes if it's a fancy soiree.
