What the Heck??

Every once in a while some piece of spam will just fascinate me.

I always look at the first couple sentences to see what nonsense they're talking about.

Here's the latest that has me laughing my butt off.

The first sentence of the humongous (and now deleted) spam went like this:

Unless you're sailing, do not tighten the vang all the way, as it will permanently and irreversibly bend your mast.. 

Two questions:

What the hell is a vang???

And what does it have to do with Canadian prescription medication??

LOL, it sounds like a sexual guide, kinda. Don't squeeze the vagina too tight, or it will bend the pecker?

Sarah Kate said...

Ha! I always get those same ones and they always leave me scratching my head!

Ohhhh my. I pretty much ignore the spam. My favorite is reading about what people search for when they stumble upon your blog. Connie's always have me in stitches. I don't know how to find my own, but I don't imagine they'd be all that funny.

Connie said...

My vang could use a little tightening.....

Holy crap I have no idea ... I could venture a guess but not sure it would be rated G :)

Emmy said...

Yea I have some ideas but I really don't want to spend too much time thinking about it

Karen Peterson said...

I'm pretty sure I don't want to know...

Whatever it is a loose one is evidently not good.
I don't even want to think about the link to prescription medication, let alone Canadian medication.

Natalie said...

I have no idea but now I want to go read my spam and see if there's anything good.

oh my gosh! I have been getting spam on older posts...

stephanie said...

seriously though what the hell is VANG???

Allyson said...

Seriously...all I've got is "that's what she said."

Also, oddly...in my blog roll on the side of my page, this post is actually titled "My Dog." I have no idea what's up with THAT.

The crappy euphemisms abound!

Mrs. Petrie said...

Wait, where's your cute doggy post?? It was in my Google reader and not on your site. Weird.

Xazmin said...

Haha...those spams can be amusing.

Although I always get ones for erectile dysfunction medication, and some of them are really nasty!

How the heck did ED people get my email, and why do they think I'm a man?

Xazmin said...

I just re-read my first sentence and and I sound like a dork.

Vodka Logic said...

At least it was mostly English...

According to Urban Dictionary (and this is the 5th one) "

Noun- short for Boom Vang. A boom vang is the mechanical part on a sailboat that holds down the boom of the mainsail."

Youre welcome. :)

That's amusing - I also glance over the spam before deleting!

Miss Angie said...

Is it how someone from eastern europe says "wang"? "He vas dis big and his vang vas huge!"

Christina said...

Ew. Hahah!
