Is it poetry or is it spam?


“”Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.””

— Lewis Carroll, Jabberwocky


Although he turned his talents to more literary pursuits, the author

of classics like Alice in Wonderland would have made a great spammer. Recently, in an effort to get around more sophisticated filters, e-mail marketers have been using subject lines filled with seemingly unrelated words. It has to be a random generator — doesn’t it? Just in case, we decided to present the best of the spam subject lines we’ve recently received. We welcome you to send us your own creations, or forward the ones that have made it into your inbox, but only the subjects lines and not the actual e-mail. As you can see, we get enough spam already.
