Some people might think i’m odd for liking junk email, but i find it can really spice up life. To be offered Viagra at cut price rates and imitation Rolex watches on a regular basis, feels ever so slightly edgy – it’s like having dodgy mates who can do you ‘deals’, but without the attendant risks of being raided by the police or being beaten up by thugs with ‘Love’ and ‘Hate’ tattooed on their knuckles!
Then there’s the girls out for ‘no strings fun’, who i am – apparently – surprised to hear from ‘after all this time’, (damn right i’m surprised!), and the strange random offers of vast sums of money from oil dealers and the United Nations… who would have thought it, little me being asked to help out the UN with their financial difficulties?
Most people consider this type of spam an unneccessary and inconvenient intrusion, deleting it without even opening. Whereas i – of course – write back!
Oh no, not me
We never lost control
You’re face to face
With the man who sold the world
