Believe it or not, I’ve found something even more irritating than getting spam.
Getting SOMEBODY ELSE’S spam.
Just when I thought unwanted e-mails couldn’t get any stupider, along come some spammers mistaking me for a guy named RONALD Basler. The actual screen grab above shows just a small sampling of the offers Ronald is getting at my e-mail address.
Blog Guy, I’m looking to join a rugby team. I saw your item about Naked Rugby, but I seem to recall there are two different kinds of rugby. Is that right?
Blog Guy, how’s Oktoberfest shaping up this year, if you take my meaning? You know, those Bavarian women tend to wear some pretty risqué outfits over there, huh?
Boy, I’ll say. For your convenience, our photo people have put together this combo shot, showing cleavage of the visitors wearing traditional Dirndls.
Blog Guy, my tax guy’s taxidermist told me something really creepy. He has close ties to the animal kingdom.

Ron Paul vs. the “pretty boys”
The ad, not authorized by the candidate, debuted last week. It’s posted on Paul’s website and on YouTube. But Revolution Pac is looking for wider distribution. The PAC is seeking donations to buy TV time to air the spot in the crucial early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
This article states that the un-affiliated Revolution PAC ad appears on Ron Paul’s website, assumed to mean the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee website www.ronpaul2012.com. The ad does NOT appear on our website, nor does any Revolution PAC information appear there. Please make this correction, and many thanks for your attention.
Johnson, get in my office! You call yourself a news photographer?
What did I do this time, Boss?
I sent you to cover that Paris Hilton event where she’s pushing her line of shoes, but I told you NOT to make it look like free publicity. You know, it has to seem newsworthy.
After all, she is one of the 10 most hated people in America, AND she’s just trying to sell shoes.
Blog Guy, recently you wrote about a bunch of ambitious homemade inventions around the world. A submarine, a helicopter, stuff like that. Do those things actually work?
You bet they do. Here is that farmer in China testing his homemade flying device yesterday. It’s powered by eight motorcycle engines.
