Spammy spam spam spam

Rachel of My Messings recently awarded to me the One Lovely Blog award, thank you so much Rachel!
Now I know we are supposed to write seven things about ourselves, but honestly.  Aren't people's entire blogs pretty much stuff about themselves anyway?   So I thought it would be more fun to let some of my favourite spam comments have a moment in the sun.   

Spam.  Sometimes I feel sorry for spammers.  They have a tough life, daily facing an uphill battle.  Their hard work is often unappreciated.  Hours: tapping away on keyboards, hacking their little hearts out, frequently in a language that, let's face it, it's pretty obvious doesn't come easily to them... all that effort, for what? 

How often do we take a moment to really consider the Soul of Spam?  
Some are pure gems of angst-ridden, strangled prose; others are little bon mots, distilled works of word art... like reading an ee cummings poem.
Some could even be thought of as an e-haiku; a small thought to ponder and reflect in a quiet moment.   
Consider this; could these be the cutting-edge, the new face of modern literature?

(oh, and btw, please do not think I'm poking fun at genuine commenters whose first language is not English, I have 
absolutely the highest respect for bloggers and commenters who communicate in a second language.  These following comments are not from genuine commenters.  I have removed the website names, but they all without exception came from sales websites just trying to score a return hit...)

Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It if truth be told was a entertainment account it. Look complex to far delivered agreeable from you! By the way, how could we be in contact?

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

And, in closing...
Very occasionally, one is treated to a novella in one's spam box.  The product links are cunningly concealed within the unfolding drama, sneaking up on the reader without warning.  Such masterpieces are rare treasures indeed.  If you have the time, these are well worth the reading  :)

  1. Just as you do amazing thing when recycling fashions, you have recycled those spam comments into an hysterical post. I recognized the "fastidious understanding" one since I got that one too. (And I get almost no spam.) Thanks!

  2. I love the one that picks on your spelling, while using the most warped, incomprehensible grammar. This is hilarious!

  3. "[H]e always says what! What does the candle candle!" is positively Joycean! Love it.

  4. I know I probably shouldn't be enjoying this spam as much as I am. Who knew that something so annoying could also be so hysterically funny.

  5. Thanks in your sweat. Wang Mang look calm. Laughing hysterically.

  6. I love the 'thanks in your sweat' line best of all. I'm in quite partial to 'nike wry smile', too. I can't stop laughing ...

  7. Oh my, hilarious! I am not nearly as proliferous, nor as widely read, a blogger as you to rate such comments as these. I shall try to work harder at it. I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now and love both what you create and how you describe your experience with that creative process. Thank you!

  8. Wow, that story was truly epic...and with really cheap shoes, apparently :) I agree, those spam posts are such an abstraction of the English language; I think it's a new kind of poetry, where the message is quite beside the point and only the packaging matters. If that makes sense.

    Thanks for the award too! ;)

  9. I confess that I do my best not to read spam. As soon as I see Anonymous and check the first sentence, I send it into spam space. However, this does mean I miss some of these gems. I love 'sharing in delicious' and 'trying to get the cling of it'. You are completely amazing that you put this post together. And that last... I'm dying to know if they married. Did he abuse her? Did she continue to do security or did he take that over? And what does the candle candle? One of life's many mysteries.

  10. I hghly suspect that these spam comments are written in the mother tongue & then run through the google translator so they can be posted on English speaking blogs. Have you ever done this yourself? It's hilarious! As are all your spam comments.

  11. Thank you for the award.
    Your spams are much more enterteining than mine! so far I had a couple about nose surgery in Turkey (???)
    I agree with Alison: google translator is a useless tool that is fun to use for a laugh!

  12. He he, love this post! I agree for someone to write spam in an email which isn't in their first language has to be impressive, but it doesn't stop us laughing - oops! :-)

  13. That is just too funny!
    Thanks for the recognition, my dear Carolyn...I adore your lovely blog as well!

  14. Oh, by the way, I just love this line:
    "Rupu black hair messy sprinkled on behind his eyes firmly watching people in front of children, eyes flashed a touch of remorse light."
    It's no doubt the most romantic thing I've ever read!

  15. Oh, by the way, I just love this line:
    "Rupu black hair messy sprinkled on behind his eyes firmly watching people in front of children, eyes flashed a touch of remorse light."
    It's no doubt the most romantic thing I've ever read!

  16. This is hilarious! My favorite spam comments are the ones with suggestions to improve my blog, like the spelling one above.

    A while back on my blog, I asked for opinions from my African readers. Several graciously replied with substantive advice, but the wording was often so spam-like that I had to be careful to actually read the content of the comment so I did not delete it accidentally.

  17. I always find your blog rife with spellings and inspirements and not so many contagions. Thank you for the entertainment!

  18. I desperately want to know who is the river spike, and why is she listening?
    great post, agree with a commenter above, positively Joycean.
    thank you for the blog award!

  19. Hello Carolyn,

    If you email me your postal address, I could trace the pattern for my black lace knickers and send it to you. katherine dot peter at bigpond dot com

  20. Thanks for today's laugh. I'm in the midst of hemming curtains (bleh!) and definitely needed one.

  21. It's your 'take' on life and sewing that keeps me coming back to your blog for more.
    Thanks for the award too Carolyn:)

  22. ooohhhh Thank you Carolyn!!!!
    I haven´t any spam in my blog...maybe my blog and I are young yet ;-)

  23. It's like blog graffiti.

  24. Brilliant. I laughed out loud when I read "and obviously, thanks in your sweat!"

  25. Ha ha. Great post. I think I have gotten all of these. May I add a few to the list? Here are some recents:

    I usually do not leave a leave a response, but after browsing some
    of the remarks on "Rhythmic Line Designs And Patterns".
    I do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or do a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you post a list of every one of your social community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve
    got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is only placing
    the other person's web site link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do similar in favor of you.

    I'm not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later on and see if
    the problem still exists.

    ӏ've loaded your website in Three different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Would you mind contacting me the company name of your web hosting company? My personal email is: _____. I will even sign up through your affiliate link if you would like. Kudos

  26. Sorry to serial comment but I forgot the BEST one of all. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
