Fun with Email Marketers

Just when I thought I had nothing to write about, along comes the following solicitation to my inbox, courtesty of Lumineers@icesash.com Thank for the writing prompt, Lumi!

Subject: Look 10 Years Younger

LUMINEERS

SMILE NOW PAY LATER.

My response:

No, thank you. I'm perfectly content looking like the worn-out, broom-riding hag that I am. I've earned everyone of these gray hairs, so there's no turning back the hands of time, now.

I never smile anymore, so what's the point? Look pissed, and no one wants anything from you.

If you should ever come up with a way to squeeze 48 hours into a 24 hour day, you have my full, undivided attention. Throw in a free maid and I'll even bring a friend along.

Brilliant! The only people I hate more than email spam/marketers are telemarketers.

Marvelous! I'm now inspired to reply to spam just a bit more than I already do!
Great blog.

I know someone that actually got a separate email account just to harass these people. He had the best time doing it too!

Just checking in to see how the comment challenge is going.

LOL, I'd love to see the face of the person receiving that one.

That's a great idea, Harriet. I might just do that. LOL

The comment challenge is going great. It would be going even better, though, if I weren't so wordy in my comments.

I tend to write a short novel when commenting, so my numbers reflect literal paragraphs. ;o)

I'm having Tons O' Fun, though, and meeting some very wonderful people. This was an awesome idea!

Brilliant!! Now we'll need more spam-responses to the people always trying to sell me viagra.
