Clothes! Troop! Daughter! Fire! Could! Physical! – Akismet Presents: Fry Butter’s Comment Spam

May 19, 2010

One of the reasons Fry Butt started its Commenter of the Week feature was to encourage thoughtful, cogent and on topic contributions from our readership. A draconian Comment Policy is all well and good, but ultimately there should be a reward for providing exceptional responses to the content we pour our hearts and souls into producing. Since we’re not coming to house to do your sink full of crusty dishes, the next best thing is clearly a perfunctory award with no cash value and not subject to substitution.

Here are a few screen caps of comments that slightly missed the mark.

    Some interesting – albeit flawed – analysis going here. Too much to unpack. Just one question? What does this have to do with Capricorn One? Were Brolin and Waterson buying spacesuits off the rack? Most likely an intrepid comment spammer copy and pasted a legitimate comment from Shapely Prose and moved the party over here.

    I don’t mean to sound dismissive, but wonderful music analysis happens very often on the internet – even on Wednesdays. We’ll take your praise just the same. Hopefully, next time we won’t catch you off guard.

    Acai Berry – if that’s your real name, I have no idea what value you seek to add with your nuanced and thoughtful discourse. I might need to let it breathe for another ten years in order to fully appreciate its subtle grace.

Fry Butter has some of the finest commenters around and we greatly appreciate each and every one of you. We welcome your random thoughts – relevant to the topic at hand – and cheer whenever you dazzle us with your wit. You keep providing stellar comments and hopefully find your brilliant repartee featured in our weekly award show – or our next installment of Comments Compelling Me To Screen Capture and Laugh.

    Since the advent of effective spam filtering, I can enjoy its dadaesque charm without having to be annoyed by it. I particularly enjoy looking through my Yahoo mail spam folder for some of the more interesting “from” names. A few of the good ones:

    Schmaltz Sreelatha (imitation Rolexes – they have the best names IMO)
    Devin Herrington (Canadian Rx)
    McMenemy Reveille (viagra)
    Beauregard Debes (phishing)
    Joan Bauer (4-6 week degrees)
    Marcelo Bermudez (online casino)
    Glenna Beal (Russian bride)
    Dominique Mcmanus (some website)

    HAHAH.

    I have one from Beauregard Krebs III!!!

    He wants to give my church/charity/private organization all of his inheritance.

    Your McMenemy is my McFriend. Sounds like McDonald’s needs to get involved.

    that Wednesday one is killing me. I totally am going to steal that and use it on other blogs.
