Spam Goes the Easel

Got this in my inbox the other day:

So obviously this is bullshit so I go to their webpage,, and see this:

There are no working links on this page other than "Privacy Policy" which although it was pretty long and I didn't really read it I think it says something like, "our policy is to keep everything we do private."

Way to ignore my email, bitch.

No response yet.

Apparently easels are tougher to get than I thought.

The thing that bothers me the most about it is the "2.95$". She must be a foreigner.

And that's why she ignored your emails.

Phelony Jones said...

I simply must have a pair of fish flops

Fortunes Fool said...

Elyse is really a 10 year old child laborer and cannot understand your cunning response, which was brilliant!

BigSis said...

That is hysterical. I got the same original email, but clearly my response was boring and didn't catch her attention. Your's was awesome!

Jon Hanson said...

As if I needed another reason to NOT buy anything from Overstock.


SisterMerryHellish said...

I had a Bob Ross Pube perm once. ONCE.

Elly Lou said...

Fish flip flops? Like I need another part of me smelling like tuna.

I meant my breath, perv.

Don't give up hope! She is most likely trying to find you the items you request. She is also pondering your date idea. *lol*

Sarah: Shit like this is why I voted for John McCain.

Phelony: Sure thing. They're 2.95$.

Elyse: WHORE!

Fortunes: Great. Now here comes Dateline NBC.


BigSis: I like to think that I like to think in circles.

I totally just Tweeted that.

Simple: I love the chick in the commercials, though.

mmmm. Big 'O' indeed.

Sister: Up top? Or down below?


Elly: Um.


Onemixedbag: What's there to ponder? Have you seen me? I'm magnificent.*

*personal opinion**


Mandy_Fish said...

Thanks for posting this. I have a creative presentation tomorrow and I think an easel and a giant checkmark will really help sell my idea to the client.

A Vapid Blonde said...

I am pretty sure your fish flops are going to give me nightmares. I think you should make lobster flops and really scare the crap out of her.

Unknown said...

You are too funny! I seem to be getting tons of spam all of a sudden; what's up with that?

Oh...and thanks for the review!

VEG said...

I snorted so hard at one point reading this that I inhaled a cornflake. Thanks a LOT. And well that chick did initiate this whole thing so she should really expect fish sandals and offers of stalking love, no? I love how her response 100% ignored your email. She must have been in a tizzy of terror. :)

MrsBlogAlot said...

Yours in Christ... you kill me!!!!

Saying I've missed you wouldn't even begin to cover it!

Ducky said...

You get all the good shit....

Little Ms Blogger said...

I'm in awe that someone could 1) still get an easel; and 2) make a big ass check mark.

I can't believe she turned you down. I also can't believe it's taking her so long to respond.

Andygirl said...

so, I snort when I laugh. and throughout the email, I was snorting. copiously. yes, there was copious snorting.

and then I got to #5. whereupon I guffawed. that doesn't happen often. guffaws deserve some kind of special, magical prize. I'll have to think of something.

then I got to, "yours in Christ." at which point I laughed so hard I scared my sick cat and now she's hiding. I guess Jesus scares her.

I hope it was worth it.

meleah rebeccah said...

You always have THE BEST replies to Spammers! HA!

PS: Overstock has free shipping.

Miss Yvonne said...

I wish I had the balls to do this. I never respond sarcastically like I want to on account of my weird fear of offending strangers.

Vinny C said...

They found you because you offer both the services they cater too:

This post is just an example of how educational your site is and as for marketing, I got an idea: Fish flops + beach = $$$.

Malach the Merciless said...

But what about the discount?

Chris said...

Did we ever find out if that's Elyse in the picture? If so, she's pretty hot.

life in the mom lane said...

I want that discount code ASAP... oh yeah... and a pair of those fish flip flops...size 8 please.

"yours in Christ"- now I get it... you use the fish flip flops to walk on water... that's why you ended it with "yours in Christ"
Revelation- midgetmanofsteel aka Jesus

injaynesworld said...

Well, thank you for clearing up the mystery of Elyse. I got the same e-mail and thought "Hey, if you have some questions just ask them." Then I deleted it.

Love the sandals. Where can I get some?

Pearl said...


She contacted me as well!

Oh, Elyse, Elyse, Elyse. So fickle.


Didactic Pirate said...

Can't believe Elyse completely ignored your offer to fly to her and begin a loving, deeply satisfying relationship.

That bitch must be made of stone.

Jessica said...

Wait a minute - a free ticket on Southwest? Give me call sometime.

bikramyogachick said...

You can use the ticket to come see me. :)

Moooooog35 said...

You've Got: No problem. I get royalties.

Vapid: I have crab flops but they're totally not shoes.

I've said too much.

Eva: You're welcome.

Kage: blah blah blah please describe your avatar!!

Veggie: Is that, like, a new drug trend?

Mrsblogalot: WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!

Daffy: "Good" is a relative term.

Little Ms: I know. Like my self-esteem couldn't get any lower.

andy: wtf. you're the second woman who snorted during this. Were you also eating corn flakes?

Meleah: Will they free ship me an easel?!

Yvonne: Offending strangers is what I live for. Well..offending anyone, really.

Vinny C: Let's run with this!! I'll need some start up capital, of course.

Kimber: fight?

Malach: I know. I'm so confused.


Typical, really.

Life in the mom: You've solved the midgetman code!

injaynes: Come see me and Vinny C in a couple of months. I think he's working on it.

Pearl: I love the word 'fickle.'

fickle fickle fickle

God, that was amazing.

Didactic: Wait. Are you saying she's also mythical?!

Jessica: Aren't you married? You sure he doesn't mind watching?

JJ: HA! Opportunity LOST!

Bikram: I can? You're bendy, too, aren't you?

*calling Southwest now

Alexandra said...

Got something to tell you, Moooooog. Elyse is bisexual.

Yeah, she wants me in a bad way.

MJenks said...

I got that same fucking email a couple of weeks ago. I asked what she wanted and got the same form response.

I should have written back asking for the woman's used panties. I like your conversations with Elyse much better.

The Demigoddess said...

I laughed so hard I could feel my uterus exploding.

Apryl's Antics said...

I have two easels, but I will never let that bitch Elyse have them. They're MINE! Also, I have weird dreams. said...

And here I thought Elyse just wrote to me because I was special! But seriously, is it too late for me to order a pair of those fish flip flops from you for Christmas? They're the perfect gift for the kid who has everything!
