Best Spam Subject Line

I admit that spelling, say, Viagra with a “!” is pretty amusing. But lately spammers have been getting much more mischevious with their subject lines. Check out this one I got yesterday – this is just the subject!

desolater ammoniac reginald dissociable crabapple argon australia caliber distant spoonful canto coachwork exile leftover compline comparative basophilic onondaga asuncion vivo transferable involution crevice crack loan czar futile horn bowmen musicology mold blockade stigmata

I’m pretty sure that “Crack Loan Czar” is a band I was once in.

It almost seems like a lot of spam has quit trying to sell us stuff and now is just trying to break whatever anti-spam measures we have in place.

Oddly enough, those are my favorite kind of necromancers.

That's up there with my personal favorite... a spam with the subject line of "peephole basidiomycetes".

What is this then?
