gaylord draxo et al

i'm already nostalgic for certain kinds of spam. i just found this list i'd kept from a couple of years back when i was deluged (as doubtless were you) by offers of cheap painkillers and dubious penis enlargment  treatments by fictional people whose names were, i presume, generated by a computer algorithm somewhere beyond the reach of international law, though many of them were so glorious i couldn't help thinking that there was a baroque parallel world of ruined monasteries and flying bicycles and whale hatcheries in which these people actually existed...

wanda bourgeois, boote fulton, samantha fontenot, elton melton, ichabod cloud, hanford gerd, isaiah looney, maude looney, mitzi looney, kippie shinming, logan boon, ferdie korny, hayward ping, crystal margaret, lawanna barbie, gershom festus, gaylord draxo, ricky spangler, kin corny, ebenezer donny, socorro childress, dolores broussard…

enough, I think. they’re like a box of chocolates. I’ll close the lid and put some more up later.
