George W Bush parody spam email is one welcome piece of spam mail
Does George W Bush know how to turn on a computer, let alone write a spam email? I think not. Nonetheless, this parody spam email is a hilarious take on the Nigerian spam mail everyone and their pet golden retriever receives every day, regardless of how many freakin’ spam filters you’ve set up on your email account and fake email addresses you input into comment fields instead of your real one. Yes, I’m slightly peeved!
The email, from someone posing as Bush, is asking of its receiver to ‘TRANSFER A SUM EQUALING TEN TO TWENTY-FIVE PERCENT (10-25 %) OF YOUR YEARLY INCOME TO OUR ACCOUNT TO AID IN THIS IMPORTANT VENTURE’, which, of course, just so happens to be his quest for oil. ‘I AM WRITING YOU IN ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE PRIMARILY TO SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE IN ACQUIRING OIL FUNDS THAT ARE PRESENTLY TRAPPED IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRAQ. MY PARTNERS AND I SOLICIT YOUR ASSISTANCE IN COMPLETING A TRANSACTION BEGUN BY MY FATHER, WHO HAS LONG BEEN ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN THE EXTRACTION OF PETROLEUM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND BRAVELY SERVED HIS COUNTRY AS DIRECTOR OF THE UNITED STATES CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY’.
Pretty funny stuff for those sick of spammers and Republicans.
