Dada Comes to Spam

Lately, I can't wait to open my Gmail's spam bucket and find a wealth of bizarre phrases as impossible subject headings. Anything that isn't direct advertising for sexual performance enhancement is often entirely in the spirit of Dada.

Anyone else notice this? Any phrases that sing to you?

Actually, my favorite little bit of subject line Dada spam also dealt with sexual performance enhancement, AND theatre (I'm guessing.) AND it would make a great play title:

Agamemnon C**k Multitudinous

This is a bit late in the game, but I giggled at this one I got recently:

"Weren't those doctors enjoying laughing fast?"

New Favorite:

Refine jealousy skills rushed among, snags taco?

I feel that "snags taco?" is one of the universal questions we should ask of any play.
