Sometimes spam messages are worth reading

Posted on January 7, 2009

I would never recommend reading every single message that appears in your junk mailbox, but every once in awhile, there's a golden nugget of hilariousness. Here's one I received a few days ago:

I have a few questions about this.

1. What is the email asking?
2. I've used a stainless steel mug recently ... does that qualify me?
3. Is the person's name who sent the email really "Beyond?"

Besides those things, it looks like an amazing deal!
