What They’re Trying to Sell Me

Not me.

Not me.

Last week I made the radical decision to delete a posting from 2011.  Yes, I know some of you will miss “Book Club Intimidation” but that particular post was attracting an enormous amount of spam.  Once deleted, the number of “comments” I had to go through fell from almost 3000 to a mere 600.  Completely manageable in comparison.  So much so that I actually started noticing some of them again.  Yes, they have the usual misspoken English but what attracted my attention this time is what they are trying to sell me.  Not what you would think.  Although there remain a fair number of erectile dysfunction ads, on casual glance, Ugg boots easily top the list.  Other front runners include tutus, with no modifier, while other spam assures that “adult tutus”, “handmade tutus” and “tutu dresses” are also available.  I am also urged to purchase anti-estrogens, ninja games, and propecia.  Whatever they might be.  Pheromones are also apparently available online.  But surely me in Uggs and a tutu should be enough to attract the opposite sex?
