A friend recently forwarded me the BEST SPAM EVER. Ready?


Dear Ladies or Gentlemen,

We learned from the internet that you are in the market for mold, this happens to coincide with our business activities.

I literally have no idea how I’m supposed to respond to this information.

They learned this on the internet?

What *else* might we learn?

I think it means they're going to put their moldy wood in your covered hose hole.

I'm always in the market for mold.

I really, REALLY don't get it.

That is one of the funniest things I have ever read.

@7 or just really badly built condos and townhouses right here in Seattle.

A set of townhouses one block over from my house are not into their second winter yet, and recently they were stripped bare of all of their siding and padding, for a brand new attempt at waterproofing.

you could email a response and ask what the hell it means.

Are those focused ads that appear in email providers like G-mail programmed to give your address to the advertisers? I made a typo in an email of the word "does" spelling it "dose" and got ads for e-pharmacies. Have you recently been sharing recipes for molded holiday treats?

No, the best spam ever was one I got a few years back requesting help finding replacement parts for a time machine.

I'm not even joking.
