Great list! I have a few of those in my email as well.

Happy Thursday!

Thanks for coming over, Elena!

Sunny Ellis said...

Isn't spam interesting. I've been tempted to creat some book characters from spammers.

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Ooh, that's an intriguing idea, Sunny. I can see all kinds of chick lit possibilities. :)

JHS said...

Great idea for a list.

I don't get all that stuff any longer . . . I use Norton Internet Security and it all goes to the spam folder. I never see it. I kinda miss the penis ads, though. Hahahahahaha.

I have a spam filter, but *I* choose what happens to the e-mails. I'd rather delete 250 spam mails than lose one important one that's misidentified.
