So I’ve been wanting to put up some of the crazy spam I get for some time. Usually by the time I get around to it, it’s wiped out by Akismet.
But tonight (last night, by the time you read this) I checked my spam filter since I had a feeling someone’s comment got caught up in it (and I was right), so I just decided to read them all. Have you ever done that? It is SOOOOO amusing.
The title ‘Sex, Lies, Videotape, and Ponies’ actually sums up the spam in my filter currently quite well. With 103 spam comments (and counting), all amassed in a single day, I had quite a list to pick from.
If only comment spammers could be brilliant enough to write something worth posting!! Then it could be a win-win situation. But, nooooooo. They have to be over the top, ridiculous jackasses. And that is why they get caught in the spam filters. Get it right, guys!

Honestly, I can’t even give this one the honor of space on this blog. Suffice it to say it was a news clipping about Erin Andrews, which contained three conspicuously placed links to peephole videos. YUCK. Creepy, nasty, & YUCK.

I just installed an in-wall computer in my bathroom with a pull out keyboard tray and, with all do respect, this is the first blog I read while taking a number 2. This is getting bookmarked because it will always have a place in my heart, and bathroom. Thanks for the great read.
