I was browsing through some newsgroups and I came across this little filk tune on spam. Come one and all and sing it with me ;)
-- sung to the tune of "American Pie"
Long, long time ago
I can still remember when my emails were from just my friends....
And I knew if I had new mail
It was because some news prevailed
And an answer I could anticipate to send.
But soon the ads would make me shiver
With the strangenesses they would deliver:
Bad news from the Congo
And boobs as big as bongos!
I can't remember if I cried
When cheap viagra first I spied
But Asian teens I have denied
This crud I can't abide...
So why, why can't the spammers just die?
I don't need to build no muscles or ephedra to try
Don't want no kiddie porn or a diet to buy
So why can't the spammers just die?
Why do the spammers still try?"
