Today's spam filterings contained two items in the subject lines that I would actually like to know more about:

"mouse-ear cress palm grub"

and

"Pan-british monkey-tail valve"

A monkey-tail valve? That works across the entirety of Britain? Fascinating! Tell me more!

And where do mouse-ear cress palm grubs live? What do they eat? What an intriguingly-named creature!
