Strangely Disquieting SPAM of the Day

Hi there, simply turned into aware of your weblog thru Google, and found that it is truly informative. I’m going to be careful for brussels. I’ll be grateful if you happen to continue this in future. A lot of folks will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

WTF does that mean, “I’m going to be careful for brussels“??!?!?!?!??!

It’s going to drive me insane all day, buried so fiendishly in your typical SPAMmish, innocuous paragraph. WhywhywhywhyWHYYYY????

Am I to question every sprout I see? Avoid them on the sidewalk? Anything green, diminutive and tightly wrapped immediately becomes suspect now.

Perhaps, instead, stay away from small, wiry haired dog breeds, or, rather, the Belgian capital?


They’ve won.

    My guess is that this spam is targeting Europeans. SPAM doesn’t know what country it will arrive in. Brussels is a political center of the EU. So it would be like making a comment about something happening in Washington. Very bland statement about vague political news somewhere.

    Relax. This guy is doing you a favor, taking on the arduous duty of being careful for brussels, so you don’t have to! This is to free up your time to continue this in future, so a lot folks will be benefitted. Obviously.

    Such a precocious spammer – knew the referendum would be scrapped and Greeks want Brussels to send the bacon.

    Fool! That was the code phrase! Your counterresponse is, “Latvia must also be approached with great caution.”

    I suspect the spam message was a thinly veiled warning about the flatulence-inducing properties of Brussels sprouts. That’s my story, anyway, and I’m stinking to it.

    be careful for brussels.

    I’m fairly certain that was a movie on IFC.

    I was confronted once by a drunken brussels. I kicked him in the stindeens and he hustled away — a brussel hustle.
