Quick breather – funny spam

Yeah, I know. No one cares about spam. I just like the spam comments I’ve been getting lately.

Hey I am so happy I found your web site, I
really found you by mistake, while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks
for a fantastic post and a all round entertaining blog (I also
love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it
and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time
I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the superb work.

I like this one because it actually sounds like a real comment, but I’m suspecting it’s spam because it was left on “The Last Temptation of Cory” which has about 40 other spam comments on it too.

Also that it’s suggesting that people still use askjeeves. I thought they changed the name of it to something else?

Yes! Finally someone writes about donate your car seattle.

This was also on “The Last Temptation of Cory”, which is the episode where Topanga’s sick and Cory goes to Missy’s party and she kisses him and Topanga’s just like “don’t do it again!”. It has nothing to do with donating cars in Seattle, is what I’m saying.

I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem.
You are incredible! Thanks!

This was ALSO on that same episode post. I do like that the spammer thinks his cousin may have recommended his own blog to him. Smooth, cousin.

continuously i used to read smaller posts which as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this place.

What.

These next two were left on Glee’s “Ballad” episode post.

many does nut muffin have

That sounds like a riddle.

side effects lemonade diet

At least this one sounds more like someone was actually using Google to look up something and it somehow spun off into a spam comment.

I was curious and googled this myself, and apparently the “lemonade diet” is a thing where you cleanse your body three or four times a year by just drinking this mixture of lemonade, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and laxatives. And apparently that’s all you have. All you drink is lemonade and laxative tea and salt water for 10 days straight, and you can’t eat anything. I’m not dietician, but that sounds REALLY bad. Plus, I’ve heard that these diets where all you do is drink beverages is a good way to lose weight fast, but you put almost all of it back on immediately. The best one I think is the “water diet”, where all you do is only drink water, but only for three days. I managed that one for about 16 hours before I ate a bowl of cereal. I don’t know why people decide starving themselves is better than exercising. I mean, I hate exercising, and I have a bad knee and ankle, and I get lost really easily, but I still try to walk about a mile every day. All I do the rest of the day is eat sugar and carbs and sit down and I still managed to lose 10 pounds just walking a mile about 3 or 4 times a week. And I didn’t have to start myself.

Sorry, don’t mean to be judgmental of these “cleanse” diets, but they’re a really bad idea most of the time.

There was another comment that just says “pie crust” and it was so funny I actually approved it even though it was obviously spam. Seriously it just said “pie crust” and that was it.

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

Would you advise starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!

I occasionally get comments like this, or ones asking if I know if there’s a Twitter widget on this site. They’re all reasonably well-written and seem like real things someone would ask about, so I’ve actually responded to a few. But given the fact that there’s SO MANY and all of them are on the same few posts from Boy Meets World, I’m no longer responding to them. I will actually answer this one though:

I guess I’d advise starting on WordPress. I wouldn’t bother going with something where you have to pay but can potentially make money back until you have a good following, or you’re sure you have a great idea. I don’t really know what else to say, since I don’t receive money for ANYTHING I do on the internet. I can’t even sell anything on eBay correctly.

But WordPress has a really easy to figure out format for a beginner, and doesn’t require you to know how to code or anything, so it’s a good place to start.

 

There was also this hilarious comment that I hope was spam that was just like “I was at the beach with my niece and told her if she held a shell up to her ear she could hear the ocean, and she did, and a hermit crab pinched her ear! I know it’s off-topic but I just had to share!” I mean that sounds so much like something a middle-aged aunt would actually do (randomly post a cute story like that on a forum where no one has expressed interest in hearing her stories) that I’m not totally convinced it was actually spam.

If it WASN’T spam, please note that I do not appreciate hearing anecdotes from people who have never once commented anything relevant to the subjects on this blog. If you do like I do and post anecdotes that are related to the subjects of the posts, that’s cool, but don’t just randomly tell me about your niece being traumatized by ocean life for no apparent reason.

Also of course she could hear the ocean if she held the shell up to her ear SINCE SHE WAS ALREADY AT THE OCEAN.

 

And finally, is there some spam machine out there that’s sharing Boy Meets World 113 over and over on Facebook? Or are a lot of people just really enjoying that one page? Because it’s gotten 37 views so far today and 24 shares on Facebook and that seems really odd to me that that episode in particular is getting so popular right now.

Also it seems that the Glee and Degrassi posts are WAY less popular than the Boy Meets World posts, partly because the BMW posts are getting so much spam. That’s disappointing to me, especially because some of the Glee posts are actually among the better pieces on here, but at least I don’t feel so bad about not writing them so often now. I mean, I’m sure if I wrote them more regularly, they’d be more popular, but, eh.

And finally-er, right now I’m thinking when Boy Meets World and Glee finish up on here (since Degrassi will NEVER end unless I step it up to like 8 episodes a week and then I might be caught up with the show as it’s airing on tv), to cover Home Improvement, Roseanne, The Cosby Show, and Family Matters. It’ll be over two years before I get to those, if at all, so I’m just giving everyone fair warning now.
