consider the following piece of spam:

Date: Tue, 13 Dec 2005 08:06:05 -0500
From: Pele Crumrine
To: Conchita Stanford
Subject: Re: cristate Negress

across Montserrat and the out islands. Soon thereafter darkness would come, and the Jackal approved of darkness. But then, so did the Chameleon. Storage room, anything? said Bourne into his radio. Rien, monsieur. Johnny? Im up on the roof with six scouts at all points. Nothing. What about the dinner, the party tonight? Our meteorologist arrived ten minutes ago by boat from Plymouth. Hes afraid to fly. ... And Angus tacked a check for ten thousand on the bulletin board, signature and payee to be entered. Scotty was right, all seven couples will be there. Were a society of who-gives-a-shit after an appropriate few minutes of silence. Tell me something I dont know, Bro. ... Out. Im heading back...

the question: are spam filters genetically optimizing computer generated text? cause this one is... well, kind of good.

Not the most expert Photoshop work I've seen, but certainly some of the most humorous in a while! Trent should audition for a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. :)

Hmph, I thought it was pretty good considering it was dashed off when I should have been working on a paper :P

And Dan's photoshop with the Camus head is nearly indetectible!

aha... well, that's a way to get the spam through, just snip out pieces of human-written text that won't have been indexed by spam filters...

sigh... i didn't think to google it...

good call!

Oh, jess, I didn't mean that it wasn't good photoshopping; it's a heck of a lot better than I could do. I think that it's just because I took the original photo...

I meant to say, I've seen better, but only from pros. You're damn good. :)

Aw, I wasn't really offended... I've seen better too. Better photoshops. Maybe not better procrastination.
