Of the many e-mails in my spam folder, I found one yesterday that I would like to share with you, if only for its creative use of the English lingo. A photo (shown above) was attached but, to protect the lady’s privacy I took the liberty to employ some Photoshop gimmickry.

Whilst I wouldn’t mind ‘to walk on coast’ with Irina, I think I’ll refrain from contacting the charming lady for now. If you would like to ‘construct serious relations’ please let me know and I shall put you in contact with her (I have altered the sender’s e-mail address, again, with the aim of protecting her privacy).
The photo arrived in my spam mail-box and was slightly altered by means of computer aided programmes.
