Spam of the day

Occasionally I glance at a piece of suspected spam just to be sure it's spam. Sometimes it's so wacky that I have to read the whole thing. Case in point:

Subject: Re: Jed - Hope at the moment he unhappily has painful problems! - NuW4KwDGZEPZi2tfjd

I'm very sorry to hear that Paul Jatter has hard nuisances, and I'm intrigued by the notion of stopping from this good swift universal tips, but I'm afraid I'm too busy to visit their site at the moment.

    I much like the phrase “prized Jed”.

    Also, “good swift universal tips” sounds like something that the comapny i work for would benefit from…

    Are these spams generated by less that elegant computer programs or written by “english is a second language people”?

    I just wondered if the spammers were now identifying two or three catch phrases that their audience may respond to, and auto creating an email.

    Is that as opposed to being happy with your painful problems?
