    I looked in one of my email accounts today and the first email in there was a mailing from 1-800-FLOWERS with a subject line that said:

    "Send Mom a gift and we'll include a cult"

    Accident or truth?!

    Actually that's just how my mail provider cut off the subject line (which reads: Send Mom a gift and we'll include a cultured freshwater pearl bracelet!). Sorry for this pointless post...just made me chuckle.

  5. A friend of mine got some refinancing spam with the subject line, "ARE YOU A HO". He posted a thread on another board I read with the subject line, "This spam is absolutely ludacris."

    Actually, never try to ,,unsubscribe" from spam mailing lists. By doing that, they get a confirmation that your e-mail account is ,,alive" and then they´ll start spamming for real.
