China Inflatables


My yahoo address got spam today from a company advertising "China Inflatables", or inflatable things (like chairs, beds, etc) made in China. I complained as usual but was very tempted to reply. Maybe the next time, I'll do something like...

Dear Sirs,

Thank you for your invitation to buy Inflatable Chinese. I have an urgent requirement for some twenty thousand inflatable punch-bags with weighted bases for my self-defense classes. These punch-bags should be life size and weighted at the base so that the bounce back when knocked over. They should be of durable material, as they will be subject to a great many beatings as we train our soldiers, er, students.

The inflatable Chinese I require are Deng Xiao Ping, Jiang Xe Min, and Hu Jin Tao and any other members of the Chinese Government, both past and present. Mao Ze Dong would be a nice addition, although I understand that you personally hold him in high regard.

We would be grateful if you could supply the above specified merchandise before October 2004, as it would help with our invasion, er, self defense plans.

Yours sincerely,

G. W. Bush

Mind you, this is such an obvious fake - there's no way that Dubya could put that many English sentences together.
