Now that I've moved away from Berkeley, spam subject headers appear to be taking the place of bumper stickers as objects of my obsession (I no longer have to deal with quite as many exhortations to "Visualize Whirled Peas). I was just emptying out my junk mail folder and got one that might actually beat the "kiss of the womb" messages referenced earlier in this blog. Apparently "Martha Rocha" felt the need to invite me to "Grow an anaconda out of [my] trouser snake."
I especially like this one because it seems like it could be a gardening tip. Perhaps Martha works at Ace Garden Supplies and knows that I try to grow herbs. Could a "trouser snake" be a reference to a modern-day Chia pet, preseeded with tarragon? Is an "anaconda" an exotic new fruit?
Alas, her anaconda is less herbs-de-provence, and more Sir Mix-a-Lot. But still. It never hurts to dream.
