Cialis Is Not For Everyone

I can't help but giggle at some of the spam that makes its way into my inbox. While gmail has pretty decent spam filters, there's always some crap that makes its way in. And as I'm glancing at an email to determine that it is indeed spam, I usually can't help but notice peculiar things about it.

Like this one, for example:

Worried about the loss of erectoin? EVEN if you have no
erectoin problems SOFT CIA7LIS would help you to bring
back some romantic moments that u lost in past.

Just disolve half a pil under your tongue and get ready for action
in 15 minutes. SOFT CIAJLIS! It makes your lovemaking incredible!

Now I'm not worried so much about the loss of erectoin, but actually worried that I've never even had an erectoin. Sure, I've had an erection. But what is this thing called an erectoin? I'm beside myself with worry.

I've got to imagine that spam costs someone some sort of money -- but you'd think they'd take the time to at least do a simple spell check on the crap that is sent out. Or is that just the editor in me speaking? I'm sure they don't even care whether or not I have a penis never mind that I might be worried about erectoin problems; and the whole point of spam is to hit as many people as possible. But to top it off they didn't even offer me a website link to go visit, particularly so I could take advantage of the awesome 70% discount.

But what I'm truly concerned about is that while they spelled so many simple words improperly they still managed to spell lovemaking and incredible just fine. Maybe it's a side effect of the cialis?

Erectoin is a shound, isn't it?

I get adverts to make my penis larger...I have been tempted because if they can make something non-existent appear and grow larger on me (a female) we could be in a whole other realm of science!

I always thought the spelling mistakes were on purpose to get past the junk mail filter. I assumed they spelled it all right the first time, and then just tried different variations as the correct ones were tagged.

I mean honestly, how else could you explain all the spelling mistakes, except that they're not only an advertiser but also a client! Course the idea that you would take time out of that active schedule to write an add is pretty ridiculous. Those advertisers are one dedicated bunch!

SOFT CIALIS??? (read: placebo) Makes you wonder what's next? I should sell my Skor shortbread as the next wonderdrug. First I gotta figure out what happens when you put it under the tongue...
