Taking a trip through your Askimet spam folder is like taking a jaunt through the red light district of freakiness. I certainly don’t recommend it for the faint of heart or strict of morals. But if you do cruise your Askimet folder, you will never fail to find something shocking or disgusting. The world apparently has no shortage of nasty fetishes and weirdos willing to spam my (and your blog) with links.

These strange comments range from the mundane celebrity nudity claims [Beyonce’s Breasts, Lohan’s Crotch, etc.] to the especially freaky and downright contemptible and disgusting [pre-teen girls, pee drinking] and other things that send shivers of revulsion down your spine.

But one particular comment stands out. I received this comment about a month ago. [I have removed the offensive material]


Although you would have to be practically brain dead or consumed with greed to fall for this monumental stinker of a scam, I am reposting it because of its particularly troublesome subject matter.  The scam artists attempts to tug at both your greed and your heart strings.  Claiming to be a U.S. Soldier in Kuwait in need of my (your assistance).  Also notice the links to legitimate stories to substantiate the amazingly ridiculous claims contained in the letter.

You might want to have a bucket or bag near-by as reading this letter might induce nausea.  For the sake of those who don’t want to read this trip I have posted it below the page break.
