Spam, It’s What’s For Lunch

I've been inspired again by Maggie Mason.  She has started a series of Spam Header Posts where she lists some of the more interesting & amusing spam headers she has been getting.

too, have been playing with the idea of spam headers as fodder for
blogging.  Specifically, I'd love to see real content behind some
of the headers.

Eg. for Maggie's example Hot Potato Corroborate, I speculate the body of the post could start off…

in the heavily contested Kramer vrs Kramer case, more commonly known as
Birthday Party Games Gone Wrong, it was necessary for the Hot Potato
himself to take the standโ€ฆ.

So, dear readers, I
issue this challenge:  pick a spam header that you've gotten via
email or on your blog that you really wish had real content, or that
amuses you, and fill in the blanks.

Write me a Spam Header Inspired Post.

Then, so we can all read your brilliant spam-inspired prose, add a link to your post in the comments below.

Damn, I wish I had a picture of spam.

    [this is good] On a related topic, apparently there is a Spam museum (ie in the can) somewhere in the state of Minnesota.I am quite curious about this place and wonder if anybody would know about it. Also when the Spam museum gets spam emails on their computer do they call it Kam or some other luncheon meat because it is insulting to use the same name for such an annoying thing compared to  the great food Spam?Alex

    I received a good Spam last night “No banish an deuterium” it sounds latin or old english, if you have it no doctor can help you at this point.Alex

    angelanoel – nice!
    Venus – I am picturing you pouncing… it’s a little frightening.
    stampgeek 1 – I think they call it Klik.  Kam works in accounting.
    stampgeek 2 – Or perhaps it’s better to just live with a deuterium than to banish it.

    Her Obduracy he carbohydrate


    She was a stubborn lass, and standing on the cliff top, with the icy sea wind plucking at her bodice strings, she knew she had no choice.  She would have to turn away from the lover who had brought her so much happiness, and yet so much pain. 

    “Bread,…slathered with butter and jam….Rice in jasmine-scented heaps…all of this is what brings me to you.. but it’s time I learned to live without you…”  Her lower lip trembled, but her spine was stiff. “It’s not just a fad for me.  I am making a sensible food choice…”

    “Good bye, Sweet Carbs…”

    which just made me snort with laughter!
