Spam humor

I’ve grown to accept spam as a necessary part of doing business on the Web. Once you understand that the Internet is a global marketplace, it’s a little easier to find amusement within the bombardment. In that spirit, here’s part of a spam message I received yesterday. It comes from a tent manufacturer in China.

To Whom It May Concern,

We have learned from the Internet that you are interested in tents. (Huh?) We have been in the tent manufacturing business for many years and are currently in the process of expanding and our customer base. (…and?) We are quite excited about contacting you and the potential for establishing friendly business relations with you as well as sharing the mutual benefits. (Me too. I’m always quite excited to share mutual benefits.)

We specialize in high quality, high performance tents offered to our cutomers at competitive prices. (Don’t you just love the marketing terms? I mean, we’re talking tents, not Corvettes.) We are able to supply a wide variety of tents manufactured to the specifications and requirements of the customer. We would be interested in receiving more information from you so we could submit a suitable offer to you. (So I can negotiate offers from China, huh?)

Feel free to view our website:

If you do not wish to receive any more information, please let us know and we will take you off our mailing list. We are awaiting your favorable response. (You’ll be waiting a VERY long time.)

See? Spam doesn’t HAVE to be annoying. Sometimes it’s entertaining as hell. (Or I’m spending too much time in front of this screen.)
