Intermezzo

Like most of you, I’m sure, I get a lot of spam. But lately someone has been having fun with it — I’m getting messages that pretend to be from crazy names. Much as I hate the spam, I’ll congratulate the spammer, who’s weirdly, unforgettably inspired. (I imagine that it’s just one person making up the names, because the style — which I might describe as W. C. Fields gone totally insane — is so consistent.)

How could anybody think an offer could be real, when it claims to come from names like these?
