Time for another quick review of the most interesting SPAMmail subject lines:

attend the pricing (did I miss out on free tickets to see Bob Barker?)
Laura and I are into it. (you don’t think it’s THAT Laura, do you?)
The surviving militant workers who had led the 1917 revolution were now needed in the factories, as cadres in the army or as commissars to keep the administrators operating the state machine. (which would have been good if it were from an internet pharmacy selling Reds, but it wasn’t)
Big your piano, be a real man (Pianist enlargement?)
It always was all right, but before each of Ulysses’s visits he never failed to check it. (Homer’s? Tennyson’s? Joyce’s? the Union Army’s? NASA’s? Which Ulysses?!?)
My quasiparticle himself marital (quasiparticle is my new favorite word)
Go hide thee behind the arras. (Dang, is Shakespeare writing Spam now?)
By the time of the next election this government will have closed over one third of the entire Post Office network. (Does that mean less junk mail? No such luck.)
Perry, Lionsgate plan fifth Madea feature (A showbiz headline about Christian moviemaker Tyler Perry? Of course, it’s a spam selling v!agra.)
