freecycle post of the week:

Subject: [freecycleseattle] Wanted: Vice (Lynnwood)

My first thought was, don't most people have enough vice on their own without asking for more? Then I thought, oh wait, they mean Vice the hipster mag. I could see someone having a stack of those around here.

However, what this poor speller is actually asking for is a "Vise", which is a lot less depraved than what I thought.

also related to freecycle, in the "almost deleted as pornographic spam" category is someone wanting to adopt my dog Elzar (adopted many months ago via freecycle): note subject line:
To: lara7
Subject: dog lover

Hi - i am looking for a dog to adopt.(rest deleted)

I almost told this poor fellow what kind of msgs are usually attached to the subject "dog lover", but did not.

In actually spam news, today I got a spam titled "Green Card Lottery". anyone who was on Usenet Back In the Day will understand how nostalgic this made me.
