Unbelieveable. SPAM that actually has something useful and good in it!

Shockingly enough, I found some SPAM in my mailbox that actually had something interesting, useful and good in it! Of course, it's not what the spammer wanted me to find useful, interesting, or good, but all the same... It was three quotes, in small font down in the signature portion of two messages from the same spammer. I love good quotes, and I collect them. There's nothing like having the bon mot for every occasion, and some people have expressed an idea perfectly. It is always a joy to collect such excellence in word-smithy. The two quotes I got from the spammer are:

"A celebrity is a person who works hard all his life to become well known, then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized."
-- Fred Allen (1894 - 1956)

"The secret of success is to know something nobody else knows."
-- Aristotle Onassis (1906 - 1975)

Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do."
-- Jean-Paul Sartre (1905 - 1980)

If you love quotes, I have to send you an email for a list I get every week. It's all quotes, once a week, and there are some fabulous quotes in it! Must remember to do that when I get home to my email tonight.

Ah...I found it on the internet...no need to go to my email. Check out http://www.thursdayfile.ca/

there's a community for humorous quotes here on lj. I believe it's called, eloquently enough, funny_quotes.

Yes, there is such a community

I'm sure the quotes there are very funny too, if I could read Cyrillic.
