I can point to the exact email that led to The Big Book of Spam – well, the series of emails, anyway. I'd been maintaining fairly strict email filters for years, but one slipped through one day, and it was just really funny! It made me wonder what else was going around, so I checked my junk mail folder and discovered that there was a ton of really funny things being sent around… unintentionally funny perhaps, but funny nonetheless. I shared my findings with my wife and some friends, they thought they were great, and it occurred to me that I should put them in a book!
Special thanks to the spammers behind the “Penis Enlarge Patch” campaign!
