    As a Slovenian I must say I find this mail really funny and totally illogical. Even translated back to Slovenian it makes no sense. I am convinced that my country was used by random, it is the only way I can make any sense of it.

    Johan Larson, that’s not making a fuss. It’s gazing in wonder. I’ve seen more bad English text than you can imagine, and that piece of e-mail is remarkably bad.

    I don’t know whether the translator(s) responsible for it were partly or entirely mechanical. Whatever they were, I’m guessing that that message passed through multiple languages on its way from Slovenian to English.

    Fractured syntax aside, they’re not really offering much money, are they? It’s like Dr. Evil demanding a million dollars.

    I am not for understanding? What funniness is to be happening by this disturbation? As speeching writer for glorious American President I am only for the doing of Redd Crosss in the incomplete times day.
    Are you to be the taking of my urine?

    Bruce’s email address is exposed to the extent it gets harvested by many humans as well. I would not trust a spam he received on his “well” address…

    It would be a shame not mention this fine collection of Spam while we’re at it.

    Note: Not even remotely safe for work.
