Most humorous junk email title this year

A few times a week I check the Junk Email folder for the Hotmail account associated with this blog. This time I burst out laughing when I saw the title of an email from Auto Facebook Notifier. It read:

“Hi You have delayed emails vomiting”

That was a hilariously accurate image for the spamming process. There is no Facebook account associated with that Hotmail account, so I knew not to open it. 

By the way, there is a TEDx Global Geneva talk by James Veitch titled This is what happens when you reply to spam email. Please don’t do that unless you are a fully qualified comedian.

The image of vomiting was adapted from one at Wikimedia Commons showing it as a symptom of ebola.
