oh, the delightfulness of spam...

I generally ignore the "spam" portion of my comment inbox.  However, every once in awhile, Google prompts me to check my spam, and delete.  Most of the comments are gibberish, but there are always a few that are real sentences... just completely unrelated to the post.  Here are a few gems:

This makes perfect sense to me!
Extraordinarily well written piece.
You're complete right on this writing.
This post couldn't be more right on.
This could be best writing on the net.
(All of them were for this post.
While I appreciate the compliments, I doubt it's sincere.)

Thanks for the info!  We're making a custom pair of slippers for you.  :)  oh wow thank you!!
(Found on this post.
When can I expect my slippers, anonymous commenter?!)

Hey, you stated in a much more direct way what I was trying to communicate, thanks.
(A comment for baby pictures.
Really, you were trying to communicate baby pictures too?)

Bonus comment:  A Viagra ad... written in German.  Now that's special.

Do you have any special, anonymous comments worth sharing?


  1. You prompted me to check my spam folder... and while I didn't have any cool spam, I found some comments that had gone missing! Weird.

  2. Your's are way cooler than mine! I just get long boring ads for Uggs.

  3. I've been contacted by two electricians in Australia, one comment about a fridge, and a guy who keeps trying to get me to like his blog (it's a real dude, but seriously?!). Love that you can be expecting free slippers - who doesn't want those?! :-) Merry Christmas!

  4. I get TONS of spam, here are my favorites from my folder today:

    "I often read your blog site admin often look for it very fascinating. Thought it was time i explain to you , Sustain the really great work"

    "I got what you specify, thanks for putting up. Woh I am cheerful to acquire this website finished google. Thanks For Share awkward & awesome: vacation edition Vessel Unto Honour."

    "Strangely i like about your web page is that you simply always post direct enough info"

    yes, those are cut and paste...direct quotes! Right now I have 50 to choose from, but those were the first 3 in the box.

  5. i never get any spam!
    {usually that is a good thing... but these are funny enough that it might be worth it!}
