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!

(Actual post forthcoming.)

If you want to know about spam subject lines, check out spamusement.com. It's really hit-or-miss, but some of them are just brilliant. I get rid of premature ejactulation and last longer, HELLO ME NOT DEAD, and guess who :).

I think the Pan-british monkey-tail valve was created as a result of Sean Connery's research on the anal bum cover.

Mouse-ear cress actually featured prominently in today's bioinformatics lecture, as did nematode worms, if not palm grubs.
