Oh my goodness. I was just cruising through my spam folder (1,941 spam messages since February 15th), and I must share some of the hilarity.
“Hey, stupefying deem !”
This is interesting. Usually when I’m called stupefying, it’s followed by “idiot” or a swear word. So … I feel pretty good about this one.
“Thanks Mark!! You just ROCKED my day.”
Hmm, you’re quite welcome, but you can call me MJ, Michael, or Mike, instead of Mark; since that’s my real name.
“I really feel really grateful to get discovered the webpage and appear ahead to a lot of additional entertaining moments reading right here.”
Thank you so much. Most of my readers really feel really grateful with so many of my entertaining moments as well. And I do hope that I have additional ones in the future to keep you coming back with more spam comments.
“Hahah, My laptop crashed when I was browsing http://www.mjmonaghan.com last time I was here.”
We have a legal disclaimer about these kinds of technical issues, so mjmonaghan is not held liable for any computer damage. I’m sure my site had nothing to do with it, and it would be very difficult to prove in court.
I’m so grateful that you can laugh about it, though. You must have a great sense of humor. I’m thinking you must be related to one of the following really funny people. And they love getting spam, btw:
“I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to be a famous blogger if you aren’t already Cheers!”
I don’t know who you are, either, but this is so very kind of you to say.
You should know though, that I’m already a VERY famous blogger. More than five people visit this blog every day. Stupefy-ingly, a couple of them actually read what I write!
“Keep functioning , splendid job!”
I’m not really sure how to take this spam comment. MLB frequently says these same words to me, but I won’t go into that. Perhaps you’re just glad that I’m alive and able to write this blog?? Next time you spam me, please elaborate. Thank you Mr. Spam – mer.
“You are a very intelligent person!”
I like where you’re going with this one, my spam-laden friend! A compliment like this might even move you to “approved comment” status. Alas, you probably really don’t know me or you might not have made such a false statement. Truth be told, my IQ is somewhere between Rain Man and Rainn Wilson, without the savant-ism or the comic timing.
“Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.”
You’ve nailed this one. I’ve been called The Mentalist so many times – stealing brainwaves from people like a kleptomaniac. I haven’t written a book “in” it yet, but I might write a book “on” it, someday.
“Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your site.”
I’ve been known to lay down a track or two and do a little scratchin’. I guess I just have the rhythm. Thanks for noticing that. Makes me think you really do know me and that you aren’t just hitting me with spam.
And, young Jedi, I’m so glad that you finished off your spam comment with wanting to apprentice with me. That’s definitely something I don’t hear every day. Or. Ever!
“How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy.”
Ah, my spam – tastic friend, I’m so glad you feel that it looks easy. Many others have commented that I make it look very painful.
Truth-be-told, I usually whip out a blog post in about five minutes, and never have a single glitch with WordPress. In fact, for me, blogging is so simple it’s like scooping up four-leaf clovers, by the handful, while riding a unicorn. Yep, it’s just that easy!
