The Most Interesting Person in the World

They love me! They really, really love me!

Posted on: June 2, 2010

I found a comment on my blog today that cheered me right up. It said:

“Just want to say what a great blog you got here! I’ve been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work! Thumbs up, and keep it going! Cheers”

It just warmed the cockles of my heart right up. Finally, someone I don’t know has read my blog. I’m an Internet celebrity for sure. I have a hidden admirer.

Why did my spam filter pick it up as spam*? Silly spam filter, I amused out loud. Why would you ever think something so flattering, so obviously true, could be canned unkosher meat?

My friend, who happens to be in the room as I mused aloud, suggested I do a Google search for part of that phrase. So I did. And it turns out, my admirer really is chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, and sodium nitrite to help keep its colour. That comment, with the exact phrasing, is all over the ‘net. That comment is a slut.

Well, maybe the comment just has good taste. I mean, even if it does get around, what are the chances that piece of Spam Oven Roasted Turkey would make its way over to my blog? Obviously, somebody likes me, I don’t care if it’s an automatically-generated message for the purpose of pulling readers (and me) to its weird website. I have an admirer, and that’s all I need to know.

*Lauren does not endorse spam; so why does everyone else on the Internet?
