This title isn't about the post but I stayed out too late at a concert last night and now I want to crawl under my desk and sleep.

I received this little piece of spam recently:

Hi, Hellmuth-

I think we had correspondence a long time ago if it was not you I am sorry.If it was I could not answer you because my Mozilla mail manager was down for a long time and I could not fix it only with my friend's help I got the emails address out for me ..:)

I hope it was whom we were corresponded with you are still interested, as I am, though I realize much time has passed since then...I really don't know where to start ....Maybe you could tell me a little about yourself since I lost our early letters, your appearance,age , hobbies, and are you still in the search?

If it was you I wrote to and you are interested to get to know me better, I have a profile at [web address deleted]

Don't really know what else to say for now I hope this is the right addressLet me know if you are interested, And I hopeyou won't run when you see my picture :-)

ta-ta!!Folvyn


In spite of all the spelling and grammatical errors and the butchering of English in general, all I could think when I read it for the first time was: what if my name really was Hellmuth?

That's a new one! Helmuth? Is that the feminine version of Helmut? You gotta wonder.

I am going out on a limb here and guessing hellmuth is a typos and it's actually supposed to be HellMouth.

You see before you were a blogger you played in a Pre-Apocolyptic-Metal-Band. The reason I don't remember what you looked like was you always wore that costume.

The reason you don't remember is fame went to your head and you repressed all the memories.

Please write back soon.

Your biggest fan,

Folyvn - The Wicked

What the heck! Is that really copy/pasted? The complete Hack-Job of English is hilarious!

justrun said...

backofpack- I don't know. I do like Helmut a little better, but not much.

ginger- Sometimes spam is at least entertaining, if nothing else.

JACC- You are hilarious and eerily accurate, I fear. I always knew I was a rockstar at some point in time.

Celina- Sadly, I changed nothing except for removing the website address. Scary, huh?
