When I came to apply for a job I knew that the manager
Now who wouldn’t be interested in this? Around this time I was a recent graduate and of course the job search was ongoing so any advice no matter source was welcome. I was hoping for something to help me land that dream job. I was not expecting this:
Y0u think there is nothing spec1@l @bout your
friend but he is alway$ surrounded by the prettiest w0men.
M@ybe he is u$ing Ultra Allure Pher0mones.
LINK REMOVED FOR SAFETY
Well maybe I should have known better. Hooray random replacement of letters with characters and a body that has not a damn thing to do with the subject. I love the assumption as well. My friend is surrounded by women he must be using some obscure product that no one has heard of because it obviously works so well. It couldn’t be that he’s good with the ladies, NOO perish the thought.
Well that is it for 2006 yes we all lived through it all so let’s move on shall we off to 2007. Here’s another refresher http://www.historyorb.com/events/date/2007.

In this punctuated equilibrium livejournal series I will be bringing you stupid, funny, or another spamtastic adjective, type emails that come directly from my Yahoo! Mail Bulk folder.
For some reason I get about 6 or 7 of these every day. Most of them are standard LOOKY PORN types or free viagra but a few special gems do come in every now and again and it is these that I will bring to you here in IT CAME FROM THE SPAAAAAAM FOLDER!!!
Let’s get started.
The first email of the night has a subject containing the words “Your neighbors lost their alarm clock” Now who wouldnt be curious as to the contents of this little piece of internet shit. Upon opening the email we are presented with a one liner in n00bish as well as a link to who the hell knows what because I don’t like spyware and viruses. I swear I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried…
With our S0ft Cialis Tabs y0u will be able to chop the w00d w1th your dick.(Warning: don’t try it).
I really do appreciate the warnings I can just imagine the stream of news reports that would come out if people weren’t warned about engaging in this particular activity.
Our next little piece of human generated online stupidity just happens to have a subject line that’s word for word the same as its body the only difference is that the former ain’t in n00bish…
Subject: The size of your penis is your definition of life, define it with Advanced Gain Pro Penis Enlargement Pills.
Body: The size of your penis i$ your defin1tion of life, define it with Advanced Gain Pro Penis Enl@rgement Pills.
Finally, we have an email from one connery_brian. This email has a simple one word “Hello!” Well isn’t that nice maybe ol’ Brian is looking for a friend or maybe not…
“Your neighbors lost their alarm-clock.
Don’t worry, the sounds of your satisfaction from having sex with our new Soft Cialis Tabs
will make them wake up every morning or even have sleepless nights if you enlarge your dose.
You seem to have everything in your life but good sex.
Our Soft Viagra tabs will complete your life.
My name is Erectile Dysfunction.
I have a lot of friends such us: bad sex, awful mood, dissatisfied wife, short erections and spoiled condoms.
But I do have one enemy – its name is Soft Cialis Tabs.
When they appear, I disappear. ”
Oh look the lost body of our first email and didn’t he say his name was Brian? Maybe this is a one character short play or a poem he wants to share with the world, or maybe its just another one of those online colostomy bags THAT CAME FROM THE SPAAAAAAM FOLDER!!!!!
