Amusing Spam

I normally don't look at the message bodies of spam e-mail very often -- my mail program at home filters them out, and I occasionally glance at the subjects to look for false positives, etc. Very rarely, I get a spam e-mail at work. Then, because of my workflow related to reading email, I usually end up seeing the message body.

I got one today that was crazy:
From: Zhong Hage [email address redacted]
Subject: Re:

Hello my friend!

I am ready to kill myself and eat my dog, if medicine prices here ([website address redacted]) are bad.

Look, the site and call me 1-800 if its wrong..

My dog and I are still alive :)
Wow! I think it would be difficult to eat one's dog after killing oneself. I tried calling "1-800" to talk to the guy, but the call wouldn't go through to anything.

I was about to mention this, but you've done it already :-)

I got a similarly worded e-mail from the same name advertising great prices on something else. I think it was investment. Apparently this guy is willing to risk his life and pet on lots of things.
