Subject: Reminder: [Invite] Business Leaders 2012 Magazine
“You were recently selected as a candidate for publication in the prestigious Top 100 Leaders of 2012 Magazine. It is my distinct pleasure to inform you that your candidacy has been reviewed and approved by a special committee and that your biography may soon be featured in this extraordinary, professional magazine.”
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, snort, cough …
In the words of Groucho Marx, “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.”
Seriously, the email address they sent this spam to was for someone in my company who doesn’t fit their description at all. So you know that this magazine is nothing but a rag. Well, I wouldn’t even use it to wipe my ass or line my bird’s cage, but I guess I have higher standards than this spammer.
I’m guessing that I’ll have to pay them money somehow. Or give them a list of other potential ‘candidates’ for them to spam. Always a catch.
‘Special committee’, yeah, I’m guessing it’s the nerd who’s taking the list you bought from another spammer and programming your spam machine.
“It is a pleasure to welcome you and to share and celebrate your many personal, professional and academic achievements.”
Oh really, since you’ve done such extensive research, what are those achievements pray tell?
Here’s a suggestion for you guys … take two of your magazines, roll them up tight, now shove one down your throat until you choke and the other up your ass until they meet in the middle. Pound ’em in with a sledgehammer, if necessary. Need help? Give me a call.
