Thanks to the Exchange Team, 90-95% of spam never sees the light of my Inbox. Of the few per day that make it through: crafty viagra ads, begging sons of wealthy African royalty, and ambitious Russian college grads, I give them little more than a glace before hitting the Del button.

Today, an email from "Tayana" caught my eye. I'm not in the market for a mail order Russian bride but I am a word hound and a Scrabble fiend. This email cracked me up. Is this what happens when you ask a Russian script kiddie to implement an iDictionary interface...and leave it at that?

"Hello my hope!
I am not sure you get this message but if you got I want you to know that I want to travel to your country to work in two weeks and I just want to meet right man. I live in Russia and my goal is to leave this country because it is impossible to live here for young pretty woman. If you have not wife or girlfriend ,maybe we could try to meet? I am  Tayana ,I am  25 years old ,please write to me directly to my mail. See you soon!!!

Befuddle, indeed. Why would a spammer cram all these strange words into an email body?
