Geek bait.

While apparently any Nigerian word salad can convince Aunt Edna to open an email and type in her bank account and Social Security numbers, the savvy nerd is a little harder to entice into clicking on junk mail.

Here's an example of a good lure for getting the monkey to stick his fist in the jar: College chick proves shes swallowed aigialosaur. You have to admit that it beats the depressingly routine "Refinance Your Viagra With Bigger Breasts In Seven Days!"

I find that hard to swallow.

(Insert snare tap and cymbal from the house band here.)

But you know...

OK, I read that as, "refinance your vagina," and had a "wait -- you can mortgage those?" moment...and then realized that marriage is basically a cooter mortgage.

Try to string together words similar to those in the email subject:
College Chick = Teen Girl
Proves = Shows
Swallowed = Fellated
Aigialosaur = Dead Lizard = Limp Penis

And you get a perfectly typical spam email for a porn site:
“Teen Girl Shows She Can Fellate Limp Penis.”

I think all the time I spent in Taiwan, Korea and Japan in a previous job has made me a master of translating Manglish, the “Mangled English” of the locals.

For Example: Would you like to Largificate the Manitudeness of the Trouser's Legless Reptile?

Crankyprof,
Well, since plastic surgeons are now advertising vaginal tightening, hymen reconstruction, labial reforming, clitoris reshaping, etc... I expect that someone is out there providing loans...

Oh, and yes the ad was in wiht our USPS delivered junk mail yesterday. Sadly I think the wife threw it out.
