Spam tone of voice breakthrough

I get quite a few spam comments on this blog which I have to delete. But I really like the tone of voice in this one. I think I'd like to get letters like this from my over-serious bank.
"Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me."
Mind you, they wouldn't get my money.

  1. Dave Gorman, on his Absolute Radio show, has used extracts from spam emails to form (quite compelling, albeit odd) concrete poetry. He's now moved on to comments left on news stories. Worth a listen if you have an idle moment. Also worth checking out Pun Street, his list of puntastic shop names: http://www.absoluteradio.co.uk/djs_shows/shows/dave_gorman/features/pun_street.html?s=2
