& I believe that I've found the best 'name for a new band' that I've ever seen in the subject line of a piece of spam.

What do you think?



I believe that I would go see them, if they came to my town to play.....they sound like a very hip group.

Take a look subjects of the email in your own spam filter....do any of them sound like band names?

Post your own!

"Acai Berry Cleanse" sounds like a good name for a band :D

"Many Medz" might work, too.

"Say Goodbye to Cakey Makeup" sounds like a girl band.

It's like Dave Barry invaded your inbox! He used to do that sort of thing a lot. As in: "Also, "Short Shrift" would make an excellent name for a band".

If you haven't read Dave Barry's Bad Songs book, you really should. But not while you're attempting to drink something. Especially coffee.

Here's a link, it hasn't been kindleized yet:
http://www.amazon.com/Dave-Barrys-Book-Bad-Songs/dp/0740706004/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1230737046&sr=8-1
But it really really should be.

Dave Barry is hilarious.  I sorta wish he'd go back to a weekly column, but in a way it makes his one-off's that much better.  He had a recap of 2008 in Sunday's Washington Post Magazine -- oddly, it did not make it into my Kindle version -- but the paper is downstairs and I'll be off to read it if I ever get caught up here!

  • You're right - that's a good one
  • The thing I don't get about an email like that: Someone, somewhere is running a business. He's trying to get people to buy his items. Does he really think that people who need Vijagra also need Free Rolodexes?

I mean...they couldn't figure out how to purchase Vijagra without being randomly notifed via email. Obviously, they hadn't managed to keep the number for their Dojctor or their pharjmacy. How useful will the rolodex be?

Depends on how much time it loses every day. My grandfather bought one from a street vendor in New York (and Southern people have a reputation as gullible yokels. Ha!), and it loses like 20 minutes every day. At the end of ten days, he's back in last week.

Actually, if I remember correctly, it said "Rolfex" on the face. He was quite proud.  Always got an eye out for the deals, my grandfather has.

You must always look for the "Genuine Ersatz Rolox" badge on those watches sold on 7th Avenue. Only then can you be assured of the highest faux quality!

:D

I believe I read somewhere that the 'Ersatz' was the best model money can buy. One day maybe I'll have one *hopefully looking into the future*
