My spam folder was full this morning (neglected by me over the holidays) and just as I was about to delete the ubiquitous penile enhancement posts, I was tickled to see a couple of messages from Santa…
“Your article really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject matter goes.” Signed: Santa Claus Calls
“In the grand scheme of things you actually get an A for effort and hard work. For right now I shall subscribe to your position.” Signed: SClauswerks
Santa’s style sure reflects his spirit, unlike the other 98%:
“I was wondering how to cure acne naturally, and then I found your blog.” Signed: Rickets (Yuck!)
“1st, you wish a 3-season sleeping bag with the casket and the semi-rectangular style; the added amore due to the abridgement of autogenous space.” Signed “Polo Outlet Online”.
(WHY NOT “Casket Sleeping Bags”?) Go figure.
Asian language spam is on the rise:
And… *blush*… I actually used Google Translate: “Even though a little higher at the surface that could hurt excessive force to account for, and the effect of hair care reached three times greater risk of burden.” Signed: Luxury-Brand-something.
OK – enough! But then I saw one of Santa’s comments that seemed rather sleep-deprived, or even delusional:
“I like this information and it has given me some sort of desire to succeed for some reason.”
Unless… d’you suppose Santa struggles with self-esteem, just like the rest of us?
Guess I’ll check my Santa-Spam next December.
And now… (She presses DELETE.) On with 2013.
