Most of my inbox spam these days has been garden variety stuff from Nigerian princesses who need assistance with their enormous inheritances. So I was delighted to find this spam from Elvis today. My favorite bit: “If Yes give out come”. Good Heavens-What sort of phrase book are they using?

Have you received the one where Russian girls are trying to get a stove to cook on? — not asking for money but a stove! How would one send that? How does that scam work? Is there a big black market for stoves in Russia?
Oh my gosh- no! That sounds hysterical. Maybe they’re hoping you’ll just send them money to buy a stove? The world of international spam is a curious one…
Spam is hilarious sometimes
