Heard on the Street

It’s amazing the things I catch when I’m out and about or when I’m simply at home reading  just about anything on the Interwebs.

I love the absurd, the incomplete, the things we can’t quite make sense of, especially when it comes to language…

For example: I love spam emails. The transparent scamming! The promises to pray for you! The insincerely-composed crappy English!

I was browsing Homeless Monsters comment spam yesterday and discovered these gems:

Hi everyone, it’s my first pay a visit at this web page, and paragraph is in fact fruitful designed for me.

This will achieve the purpose of constructing money quickly.

The actual world English gambling dens the actual 18th
century, one employee had the unfortunate job of dice
swallower.

The actual world, you guys. Profound.

English is a powerful language in its flexibility. Even the ridiculous can almost make sense.

Have you overheard anything bizarre lately? Read something weird? Received a strange email? Please tell me in the comments!

    There is a mug in my cube at work (“Product of China,” says the sticker on the bottom) that bears this inspirational message: “Life is sometimes not to risk more dangerous than adventure.”

    It makes you think!
