The subjects of spam

Casey Stratton is obsessed with the subject lines of the spam he's getting. And what's even funnier is that I've been laughing my head off at some of the ones I've been getting recently.

The best one I've had recently is "incriminating trough." And, being in the profession I am, it makes me immediately think of vancomycin or aminoglycosides.

It makes me glad that Gmail has a spam box so that I can look at them without having to get all excited that I got e-mail, only to find out it's about a "postmortem golf course" or something.

And the funny thing is, I keep on thinking these insane subject lines sound like Googlewhacks, but sure enough, I type them into Google and they get something like 50,000 hits.
