Freaky spam

Very little spam makes it through my spam filters at work. A particularly odd, almost poetic one made it through today (part of what's apparently a very strong campaign for me to increase the size of my private parts), from someone named Lakeisha. Just for giggles, I'll reproduce it below, without the link back to the spam site. I like the random capitalization, the lack of sentence-ending punctuation, the strange phrases like "From the sweetest wine the tartest vinegar."

Inventory: 13 memorably unpopular characters from popular TV

Scrappy Doo
Check out the fun article on AV Club. I always disliked Scrappy Doo as a kid, but never quite realized why. Of course, this list includes a few I'm not very familiar with, and omits a few that I would definitely include:

  1. "Lil" the crazy lady in the Boy Scout uniform on Survivor: Pearl Islands
  2. Uni the unicorn on the classic Dungeons & Dragons cartoon (soon to be released on DVD, by the way!).
  3. Dr. Gaius Baltar on the modern Battlestar Galactica, a character horribly out of sync with the rest of the show.
  4. Ana-Lucia Cortez on Lost, for reasons that should be obvious to most who watched the show. Partially for a poorly written, poorly realized character and partially for Michelle Rodriguez's two-expression performances.
  5. Dr. Pulaski from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
  6. Rosalind Shays on L.A. Law (man, that actress had kind of specialized talent!).
I imagine I'll think of more later and regret not having included them. What are yours?
