5:45 PM -- Okay, maybe I'm a sucker for spam. I actually have a taste for bologna, too, but that's another story. Anyway, sometimes the messages that hit my inbox -- the ones asking for some kind of help -- are so gosh darn weird I wonder:

    1) Is this a real person who is really wanting a reply? 2) If so, are they six years old?
Here's the latest (unedited) message making me think something's odd:

Hi, My name is Rick Rojas at Miami lakes Buick Pontiac GMC, I would like to know how can put a add in the cayman island of our dealership. We have a lot of specials available to every body. Please feel free to call me at my cell at [number withheld] or you can Email me at [email protected] Again thank you.

Thank, no you.
