Because I can't be the only one to think this is funny, I had to post about it. I just received a piece of spam

From: "Anna Valencia" <annavalencia@onenet.an>
To: **me**
Subject: SPAM: Special occasion
Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2006 16:00:45 -0400



The right moment for a special update.


Few of l0an professionals are willing to offer you a better than
average rate for your h0me loan.

Enjoy the saavings with 4,7 percent!

I'm feeling: amused amused

I'm not quite sure what you got out of it, and I'm way to used to the transliterations they do to get around spam filters, but the first thing that jumped into mind when I saw 4,7 percent was that it was short for 4,700 percent and wouldn't that be an interesting rate on a mortgage....:)

For me it was that the subject line was "Spam: Special occasion". The admission that it WAS spam just cracked me up.

Ah, that...the "SPAM:" part was probably injected by your ISP's spam filter.
