If it weren't for SPAM...

According to recent SPAM, I've won the European Lotto, they know why I'm fat, I need to buy a replica watch and I have a KFC voucher! You gotta admit SPAM is funny!  Sometimes, if it weren't for SPAM, I'd have nothing to blog about!  Well, ok, I guess I'm never at a loss for words, but ya gotta admit SPAM makes great blog fodder! I mean, if it weren't for SPAM... * I'd be poor!  Do you have any idea how many lotteries I've won?!  And I've never even ENTERED! * I wouldn't know why I was fat.  In fact, I didn't even know I WAS! * I'd have a lot less friends.  People from all over the world have contacted me to share their family grief at the loss of their father, the deposed King.  I had no idea there were so many kings in the world! * I'd have no idea about all the new medical technology!  Even though I don't think I own the body parts they say I can enhance. * I'd get a lot less emails!  Now I can boast that I get between 300 and 500 emails a day!  That's impressive, especially when you consider that some of them are in a language I don't even understand! * Speaking of new languages,  I'm learning so many new ways of speaking English!  I had no idea that you could string together a bunch unrelated words and terms!  I just can't figure out what it means! * If it weren't for SPAM, well, I just wouldn't know what to do with all the extra time I'd have! By the way, do any of you know what Acai is?  I accidentally deleted that one!  Oh wait...NEVERMIND!  While I was typing this six more of them just came in! Learning communication skills can ALSO be fun!  Check out Art of Eloquence.com!

    Right off the bat, missy, you did NOT win the European Lotto. I DID!!! Several times, in fact. ROFLOL And I simply cannot believe how many dead relatives I have in third world countries that have left me gazillions of buckaroos. It simply boggles the mind. :)

    I have to admit to being one of those who actually LIKES SPAM. There, I said it. I’m a SPAM addict. It offers me so much entertainment during an average work day. And to think they send it to me for FREE. Whatta bargain, eh? The neat thing about SPAM is that for every 100 bogus “goodies” you get, you may have something legit in there. I’ve gotten some good stuff by answering some of it. Not the obviously-phony-you’ve-won-Bill-Gates’s-fortune types, but some of the ads were really good. Plus, I like to study their style. I want to know why so many folks answer so much of it. Lots of them are really good, despite being not """exactly""" true.

    So, as usual, there are two sides to every story. How do YOU like your SPAM? I’ll take mine with 2 eggs over medium, please. :)

    I keep “winning” a free print job from Vista Print. I only bought once from them and was satistied but never entered a sweepstakes. Despite this, I keep winning. I don’t put them in the spam folder because they are massaging my ego by telling me what a winner I am everyday.

    Another odd one I had was a blog commenter who wanted to advertise on my blog despite the fact the product they offered had nothing to do with the topics about which I wrote and the products were not even something I as a woman could use. LOL.
