Pick the spam!


Viv won a “spam bank” at the 80s party last Friday, and that inspired a game this morning: “Pick the Spam!” Read the following subject lines of actual “spam” e-mail messages I received today and try to determine which kind of spam they are! Here are your choices:

  1. Drug pusher (Viagra! Cialis! All spelled with 1337 garbage to try to fool your spam filter!)
  2. “Pump and dump” stock scam (those four-letter words on the “pink sheets” assured
