I get SPAM. Oh, the shame. Do you get SPAM? Shameful though it may be, I get it because I do not wish to make my lovely readers jump through hoops trying to copy the dreaded 'Captcha' SPAM-foilers in order to leave a comment. See what a nice goat I am?
So what kind of SPAM do you get? I get it from a lot of folks trying to sell shoes. I admit I haven't been able to figure out why anyone would wish to sell shoes to a goat, but I suppose there must be some mysterious reason to which I am not yet privy. And then there are the purses. Louis Vuitton, no less. Come to think of it, though, a purse might be nice. I could carry quite a few Peanuts around in a purse. And what about those Canadian goose down jackets? What's up with that? I already have enough hair to keep me warm for the winter, thank you very much. But an umbrella would be nice. Do they make designer umbrellas? And why are there never offers for Peanuts? Are there, perhaps, no designer Peanuts out there?
I have to admit, however, that sometimes they don't at least appear to be selling anything. In fact, sometimes one is unsure as to why they bothered to send the SPAM at all. And, lately they seem to be getting more and more inventive. You just never know what you are going to find. The ultimate of one such SPAM arrived today regarding my post of yesterday. I have to tell you, I laughed so hard I thought I was going to fall off my stump. Here is what it said:
"Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him."
The whole time I'm thinking, 'Wow. Your room mate was a goat?!!! How progressive are you??? A goat that was always talking about whether or not goats came over on the Mayflower?!!!! What a small world!!! Who knew?'
I have but one thing to say to the SPAMMERS of the world: "The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." - Socrates
Now there's a Thanksgiving table full of food for thought. <smile ...>
