Most spam I get these days is just a bunch of porn words put together in random order. This guy really has his grammar down pat. Plus, he did call me friend, so he must know me, right? I feel I have to send him my phone number now.

My favorite part, "so I can be gratify by you."

I get a bunch of these a day but I've never read one. Maybe I should! I could be rich!

The guy says he's in South Africa, but from the grammar, my money's on Asia.

Oh great One said...

That's so compelling I want to send him my number too!

I wouldn't stop at just your phone number. I'd also offer him your social security number and your bank account numbers. It's the least you can do. After all, he is your friend.

Sounds plausible.

Leezer stole my favorite part. I hope he doesn't want you to "gratify" him in exchange for the 14 mil. Ok, maybe you'd do it. Who knows? It's a lot of money. I never get these. I just win the UK lottery daily. I'm a lucky SOB>
