Funny quotes from real spam (sometimes with commentary). May contain swearing and/or lewdness.
Back in the day, I collected funny spam subjects and posted them on birdsite, sometimes adding my own jokes. I've decided to pick it up again here on the Fediverse, starting with the old archive & adding new items as I see them.
