The blogosphere is officially mundane. I’ve included in this post the text of a spam email that arrived in my work inbox today. The colours, fonts etc are exactly as it came to me. The header read “Baby Herbal Soup” and the text begged me to “pray” for the babies in a village in Canton who are being boiled into soup. Urban myth meets spam email.
I couldn’t help but go “Yeah, OK,” and click the link to http://www.handylanka.blogspot.com…It is a real trip.
There are real entries here, including videos and commentary on “stuff”, but it ain’t like no blog I’ve seen so far.
Sheer lunacy, I’ve got no idea what it was trying to sell me?
Like this entry, which reads in part: “to read the full story with lots of photographs”, that could be p*rn, but it doesn’t seem to be.
Baby Herbal Soup…???? !!!! Please Pray to Stop This !!!!!!
A town in Canton, China is now on trend taking baby herbal soup to increase health and sexual performance/stamina. The cost in China currency apprx. $ 4000 (it is about Rs 2000) ………………………………
To read the full story with lots of photographs …………
Visit … Read….Enjoy………

I kid you not, here’s one of the recent entries on this blog. It’s totally wierd. It’s a joke right? There are a couple more like this, note how it seems to end with some kind of “pitch” – that’s the spam part.

I’m sure this is not the only site like this, but it’s the first I’ve encountered that’s just so mind bogglingly ordinary and Homer-ish. It’s a spam site I’m sure, but how does it work?
Have I just raised it’s credibility ranking and given it a boost?
