Dear Mr. Quilly,

We have thoroughly researched your site and believe you have overlooked a potentially lucrative market for your product. You need to target new brides. Please contact us. We can show you how to tap into this constant and profitable market in just three easy steps.


Hehe — thoroughly researched. Something makes me suspect otherwise. After reading this highly entertaining letter I laid it to rest in the great cyberspace spam graveyard. I shipped it along with a virtual bouquet of flowers and a card signed by Mr. Quilly.  Pft!


  1. Hmmmm, Mr Quilly. I think you just missed the chance of a lifetime! ROFL!!!

    I got one the other week telling me how well written my blog was, and would I not like to write posts? Aaaah come on!! I’m not a writer, far from it!

    1. But Jientje, your blog is very well written! Your English is better than many native speakers. I don’t think there is anything you don’t do exceedingly well.

    1. Melli — this one actually made it past the spam filters and into my email box. That is a very rare occurrence, so — despite my suspicion that it was indeed spam — I looked to make certain. I’m glad I did. The time I spent reading it was worth the laugh.

  2. Brides would make a tasty market. There was a time when entire villages gave dragons maidens dressed in white . They were very good. But those were the old days. But if it was ” researched” should you pass it up?

    1. Barbara — my thoughts exactly. I have no idea what I did to earn a male identity, but I get a lot of spam directed toward men. Most of it has titles so offensive I have to scrub my eyes after deleting them! There’s no way I’d ever open one!
