About a month ago, I started receiving a particular kind of email spam (in large numbers): “You’ve received an ecard from X”

Here X could be (as a literal string) “a colleague”, “a neighbor”, “an admirer”, “a partner”, “a friend” …

Somehow I wish they’d be more creative and would also from time to time use something like “your dentist”, “the guy with white jeans you bumped into yesterday”, “Elvis Presley”, “your future ex-girlfriend”, “a spammer”, “Harry Potter” …

Then I’d probably even start clicking on the links. 🙂
