It’s true, and I have the email to prove it!
I know, we’ve all had our “this is a sure-fire way to get rich” moment, but this email added just the right touch of hilarity – so I am sharing:
“In Vain To Another Man’s Favor!”
How can you not respond to such an emotional outburst? Here’s the paragraph that choked me up and raised my greed level.
The email was from, naturally, US Customs, and they need to inform me that they have a LOT of money to share with me…normally I never read these spams, but this one caught my attention – near the top of the note was this intriguing line:
“Mr.Thomas Allen is your Attorney and 53 years old and 4.3 inches tall, he is located at 0801 9th Avenue North California city. Mr. Thomas Allen. The Los Angeles Airport Customs said that if you the beneficiary has not comply under 24hrs that all your effort to receive your consignment trunk boxes will be in vain to another man’s favor.”
Yes, I am running the risk of having my consignment trunk boxes “in vain to another mans favor.” Even better, my Attorney is 53 years old and 4.3 inches tall!
That made me wonder: could he be a descendent of Weng Weng?
If you are unfamiliar with Weng Weng, he was the world’s greatest – and shortest – international action star!
He was a stud, too! See his movie credits and terrific trailers here:
Now, back to my email, offering me a ton of money for a very low “administrative” fee:
I am to receive $15-million as long as I send $140 to cover the handling fees and administrative costs…hmmm…seems fair to me. I wonder what that amount of money looks like?
And as for my attorney: as the note stated clearly, my attorney is 4.3 inches tall…deal with it! That means I must discharge my current Attorney, who until now has worked doggedly for me:
And while you are considering things to deal with as you count your millions, deal with these HAIR STOCKINGS!
That’s right, if you have millions to spend, why not spend them on new “hair stockings” – see more of this REAL – YES TOTALLY REAL product here:
IT’S ENOUGH TO MAKE YOUR HEAD DO THIS:
Yes, someone captured “exploding balloon heads”, among the many funny pictures I have found…check them out here:
And let me know if it’s time to get rid of my legal Counsel!

I love crazy spam like this, John. It makes me laugh more than any comedy show.
You managed to get midget porn, hair stockings, and a link to see-through hoax skirts into the post as well! That’s a genuine blogging achievement, and put you in my top five!

Pete, the spam email was so funny to me, but I figured I better offer a few other fun things to fill out the post – as always, thanks so much for your comments!
Loved it all, John. But then, I generally do in your case!
