Bequest notification

I have numerous filters to catch this type of crap, but occasionally, I venture into the junk folder, before I close down Outlook, to have a looksee.

Anyway, this evening I got another one of those infamous offers for a portion of cold hard easy cash if I played a few games with them first.

I often wonder what makes the mind tick of the sad puppies that put this stuff together. They really should be working as script writers on Little Britain 4, instead of wasting their obvious talents sending out spam.

Spam is thought to 'stand for shit posing as mail' or 'stupid pointless annoying messages'. The Esperanto interpretation makes sense as "senpete alsendita mesaĝo", which means 'message being sent to someone without being asked for'. ''

Anyway, there's nothing like real humour to start the day... So today, no other than the good Earl Spencer himself, wanted my attention....
