spam poetry, part 1

This is a list of email subject headings I collected  in 2006 from over 5,500 junk emails. These messages accumulated in the inbox of a work email address that had no junk mail filtration whatsoever. Its the lowest variety of spam that's immediately filtered from one's mailbox with even the most rudimentary junk mail protection. I imagine the phrases are computer generated, and the word combos are intended to appeal to a random variety of potential fake Viagra customers (though according to Harper's, only 1 in every 12.5 million junk emails results in a sale). Though they're disastrously unsuccessful at selling fake Viagra, I think they are kind of amazing and hilarious.
