Five on Friday – the spam edition


We made it!!

daffy friday


I don’t know about you but this has been a tough week.  I’ve been super slammed at work, trying to fit in all of my workouts and still find time to eat and sleep, and I’m still hyped up about Saturday’s bear encounter.

I need a break!

And no bears on my long run tomorrow. Seriously.

So, in the spirit of taking a break, I’m going to let some other people do the talking.

I’m going to share the spam with you.


Not that kind of spam, silly. That’s gross. Do people, besides those who live in Hawai’i, still eat that?

Seriously, we lived in Hawai’i for 6 years. Spam was on the menu. Ugh.

Anyway, these are the top 5 spam comments I got this week on various blog posts.


This one came on my Hearty Italian Sausage and Potato Skillet post.

“Decorations that you are thru watching tv the primary series, it is evident that the exact survivors are not only seen on it’s own relating to the region however that others in the industry relating to the region may also be probably not browsing help them break free of oh no- lately. The film helps you to treatment general questions or concerns that people face your every day lifetime ever since the scenery connected with life and so the fight to depart the city and be accepted as recovered encourages usa to peer inside of our universe from the mileage. Tips on how straightforward wondering and just how we shouldn’t let deed? Some of pretty much pretty good persons? Specifically what valuable thing are you going to do today your kids? What quantity of are you going to price tag your household?”

Oh. Sure. That totally makes sense and relates to my recipe.


 This one is in response to Wednesday’s Wine Wednesday – the health benefits post.

“You can definitely see your enthusiasm in the article you write.
The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as
you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart.”

Well, I’m so glad that spambot sees the enthusiasm in my post and “always go after your heart” is actually pretty decent advice.  But, who the heck is “the arena?”


This awesome comment came on my Savannah recap post.

“Wonderful article! We are linking too this particularly great post on ouur website.
Keep up the good writing.”

Hey, thanks! Now, it’s your turn to try some great writing because I’m pretty sure you failed spelling.  Ouur. Really? And don’t get me started on the whole “to, too, two” thing!


 This one came is in response to my Tapering, Still CrossFitting, and the very best cookie bars in the history of the world. Ever. post.

“When some one searches for his important thing,accordingly he/she wishes to be available that among elaborate,whereupon that thing is maintained over here.”

I don’t even know. Are the cookie bars the important thing?


 This one is also in response to my Hearty Italian Sausage and Potato Skillet post. Apparently, that post was very popular amongst the spambots! Hopefully, whomever was cooking did a good job. 😉

“Si, comme Marion Cotillard, vous avez les cheveux bruns fonc��s avec les yeux bleus et un teint clair, vous ��tes sans nul doute une fille de l’��t��. Et si vous avez les cheveux chatains avec des reflets dor��s et des yeux bleus ou noisette, ou si vous ��tes m��tisse, vous ��tes de la m��me typologie. C’est probablement vers cette saison qu’il faut aller chercher les teintes dites froides qui vous mettront en valeur.”

Yeah, I can parlez a little Francais but really? Now you want me to translate?


And my hair (cheveux) is not brown (bruns) – it’s red. Get it right, spambot.

Talk to me: Bloggers, what’s the strangest spam comment you’ve ever received? Non-bloggers, what’s the strangest spam e-mail you’ve ever received?

  1. Oh I get that jibber-jabber all the time. Start reading it thinking it’s a normal comment, they then loose me after just 3-4 words and I send it to my “Spam” folder. 🙂
    Wish you a bear-free weekend, lady. 🙂 Glad you’re ok after that encounter.
    P.S. Buy a rifle! 🙂

    • Those usually go straight to my spam folder. They’re just so ridiculous! Some really make me laugh. Haha

      PS: A rifle would be a little awkward to run with! Someone said he was going to get me bear spray but that hasn’t happened yet.

  2. OMG those were some doozies! My little blog must not be good enough for the spambots as I rarely get spam & my last one was relatively coherent.
    Wishing you a run free of bears!

    • You can have some of my spam! I’m an excellent sharer. 🙂

      I’m hoping I’ll be in the park after Yogi’s breakfast so he’ll be tucked away quietly somewhere else. 🙂
