Spam, spam, spam, spam…

In the last two days, I have received five email offers to order Tylenol 3 with codeine online. One of these messages says, “why suffer the embarrassment of asking your local doctor?”
Am I missing something? Why would I be embarrassed to ask my personal doctor for Tylenol? The only reason I can come up with is excessive use – which leads me to ask:
Are these people crazy??
For all intents and purposes, they are blatantly promoting unsafe drug use. Now, it’s one thing for Americans to do their crossborder drug shopping on-line – that’s a case of availability, cost and health insurance. But to actively solicit, with the not-so-subtle implication that this is a recreational drug, is beyond the pale.
Frankly, the whole thing – the message, coupled with the inundation – is giving me a headache…
Now that’s a marketing strategy.

  1. An open letter to the nation of Nigeria:
    Please, for the love of all that you hold dear, tell your citizens to stop offering me their money. Their generosity and willingness to share their good fortune is overwhelming me. And my inbox.

  2. You made me laugh out loud. Well done.
    And while we’re at it, spammers take note – if I need insurance (auto, life or home), weight loss miracles, more hair on my head, less hair on my legs, bigger boobs, a bigger, wider, penis, or ideas for starting a multimillion dollar home business, I promise I’ll look you up. Now go away.
