Your knee cap tastes like ants

“Now and then, a pork chop eagerly shares a shower with the tuba player living with a customer. A plaintiff completely seeks a polar bear. A movie theater shares a shower with a chestnut. An eggplant gives a pink slip to the tuba player. For example, a single-handledly impromptu bullfrog indicates that a class action suit beyond another burglar somewhat avoids contact with an ocean.”

papaver-somiferum-opium-poppy-2002-reduced_web.jpgI don’t make this stuff up, people. This is real spam that landed in a real mailbox. And if you read it in just the right frame of mind, it makes perfect sense. Which leads me to believe that the people who compose spam are all opium smokers. And what stamina! This stuff just keeps coming and coming. Which leads me to belive that, if we all start speaking and writing in non-sequitars we might sell tons of Viagra and black market Vicodin and make a million bucks.

I’ll go first: the very first string bean the trapeze artist encountered on his trip to Belisle was the one with the yellowy eyes. And it sung to him like a can of beans on a gas pump.

Take your opium like good boys and girls. That line will make sense. Here’s to your favorite (or worst) drug experience.

    I smoked pot and got the crap kicked out of me by Portland PD. That’s my favorite drug experience. Sorry K2, I have none of my own. So, I stole one of yours

    Here’s one from my morning mail: if almost seems as if it could make sense, but not quite.

    “John King, a co-author of the study at the British Atrack with the tank is obvlousIy the biggest of insuIating fOam that drops off during Iiftoff frOm wedge-shapedressurization lines in pIace.

    Weed had nothing to do with that one, Weasel. Just my big mouth and some rabid cops.

    I did freak out on acid once. Took two drops of liquid on a ski lift at Wildcat. I was hungover on almost no sleep, and then over-exerted myself in the moguls. Next thing I knew, ‘something was wrong.’ What was wrong? Oh, I don’t know. But it was something. So I had to bail on my friends and go to my friend’s van in the parking lot to get a grip. I writhed in the van in the fetal position for an hour or so, then somehow fell asleep for a few minutes, woke up in control of the reigns of the proverbial bucking bronco, and then went back out on the slopes and met my friends, who promptly made fun of me in the spirit of Weasel. From then on, it was always, ‘Dude, I have to go to the van.’

    Only ‘bad’ acid experience I really ever had, and it wasn’t for the whole trip, thank goodness.

    One of the few times I smoked opium was my senior year of high school at a party. I ended up eating a half a tube of kids’ bubblegum flavored toothpaste. Scrumptiously delicious.

    Basically, I’ve had far worse times with too much booze than anything else. But now I’m simply high on Jesus. . . .

    Years ago, I saw a paper that a fellow student in my college class was planning to turn in, that was written like that. I think she sat in class & wrote down words the prof used, the basic vocabulary, then entered the list of words into her computer & put them into random sentences with the Grammar check function. Either that or she was having a psychotic break.

    In the mental health field, word salad (originally from the German Wortsalat) is used to describe the symptom of confused, and often repetitious, language that is symptomatic of various mental illnesses. …. In this context, it is considered to be a symptom of a formal thought disorder. In some cases word salad can be a sign of asymptomatic schizophrenia; e.g. the question “Why do people believe in God?” elicits a response like “Because he makes a twirl in life, my box is broken help me blue elephant. Isn’t lettuce brave? I like electrons, hello.”

  7. K2 said,

    What about ‘tossing salad’? People do it. *barf*

    K2 Warning: This will be lengthy. Go tune-out and do something else for a while.

    For the rest of us:
    The gibberish emails you receive; usually under titles such as “Weighty Letter, You Should Read This” and so forth, are a method spammers use to by-pass spam blockers and other such software.

    Many email systems; I’ll use Groupwise as my example, have two function settings; one being for simple plain text, and one for HTML coding that allows for, amongst other things, foolishness such as ‘smileys’. Plain text must utilise the old-style ascii “smileys”. (You should avoid these like the plague, especially the sites that offer “free smileys” and crap like that. They usually have spyware cookies embeeded, and sometimes are hacked and loaded with computer virii.)

    Spam email used to be simple text messages and while pernicious and aggravating could be blocked by setting the blocker to search the email looking for certain keywords. Keyword searchers are also used by management monitoring employee emails; so when Mark gets an email advertising the latest fully-functional love doll, Mr. Costello knows about it right away.

    Spammers have gotten considerably more high tech. In some cases they are part of a nations effort (Iran; China, amongst others) to attack us and degrade our information transfer capaility. Notice that the return addresses appear to have a valid domain; many times they ARE valid domains, but the user name is merely miscellaneous letters/numbers. Responding to that name/address almost invariably fails since it is completely false.

    With improvements in technology, the spam message is now a graphic file, a .JPG file or some such, embedded right into the body of an HTML message. The Underlying “messages” examples of which are previously cited, are mere camouflage which helps defeat a spam blocker looking solely for text, or a simple embedded graphic.. When you receive the email in “Simple Text” format, all you see is the gibberish message. You scratch your head and wonder what the hell that was about, and send it to the trash. View it in HTML format, though, and there’s your message, selling you on the latest herbal weight-loss thing, or something to make your penis bigger, or cheap oxycodone, or other crap like that.

    So, while some of the supposed messages might appear funny, or might appear to almost make sense, it is only that way by accident. It’s nothing but a computer program inserting blocks of text so as to defeat a blocker program. The lines might be excerpts from almost anything that can be found on the internet, or merely random words inserted as filler.

    Another aspect of this sort of spam is that there are occasionally embedded virii and other things that can hurt your computer. Some of this spam also is programmed to report back to the sender if the email is opened; this serving to verify that your email address is a valid one. Guess what ? Yup. More spam a’headin’ your way !

    My best recommendation: get an email from someone, or with a topic, you don’t recognise ? Ditch it straight to your anti-spam folder. Don’t open it; there’s nothing in there you really want to see. No, your penis or breasts aren’t going to get bigger. No, the cheap drugs aren’t really worth it. No, you didn’t really win the irish lottery or some such foolishness. Different mail programs have different anti-spam functions so I can’t begin to help you there. Another thing, do support anti-spammer legislation ! Death and dismemberment is not too harsh for some of these people !! Head on a spike on the City Gate works fine for me !!

    Hope this helps.

    OK; K2, you can come back and be foolish again.

    I didn’t win the Irish lottery? Rats!

  10. K2 said,

    “Hey, I’m John and I play a guitar. Sometimes I play the fool.”

  11. LaFlamme said,

    What I don’t get is the fact that some, if not most of this spam, advertises nothing at all. It’s just a long, senseless diatribe, not wholly unlike Street Talk.

  12. jarheaddoc said,

    “Did you take the train or bring your lunch?

  13. LaFlamme said,

    Is it faster to New York or by bus?

  14. LaFlamme said,

    What’s the difference between an orange?

  15. oopsy said,

    The old line about “the price of oranges in China” comes to mind here. But, well, I gotta see a man about a horse. I prefer phrases that make shivery sense ..

    “sliding down the razor blade of life.” (Wasnt that part of an old Tom Lehrer song?)

  16. LaFlamme said,

    Frasier Crane: “I’ve got to go to the little boy’s room.”
    Lilith Crane: “Why does a grown man feel the need to euphamize?”
    Woody: “Well, he did drink that beer pretty fast, Mrs. Crane…”

  17. LaFlamme said,

    Woody: “I’m not bitter, Sam. I just consumed by a gnawning sense of hate so that I can taste the bile at the back of my throat. Either that or I’m coming down with something. Does anyone have a Tic Tac?”

  18. K2 said,

    “Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly . . .”

  19. LaFlamme said,

    Classic woodhead.
    I’m still getting caught up on the Alpha Omega debate.

  20. Richie said,

    The spam or advertising isn’t in the gibberish words. Thats merely to fool lower-end spam blocking software. The actual advert is probably in HTML format embedded graphic.

    Next time you’re over here, Mark, I’ll show you an example of how it works.

  21. Richie said,

    Hey, Weasel dude !! I like that piccy !! Is that you, hard at work, making ’em ” … respect your authoritah …” ?

    Did you see K2’s piccy in the paper last week ? He don’t look nuthin’ like this one at all !!

  22. Linda said,

    Better make K2 give the secret code word if you are not sure it’s him.

  23. K2 said,

    Oh, it was me, all right. Damn, I’m a good looking woman.

  24. AO said,

    Liz, right?

  25. Linda said,

    I can vouch for the picture being K2 — I was there when it was snapped!

  26. Bobbie said,

    There are 268 of “me” in the US. Some of them actually live within a 3 hour drive of me. The really freaky thing is that at one point in time, we had the same insurance company.

  27. Bobbie said,

    With my maiden name, there are only 12 of “me” in the US.
