Spam is good for something after all: haiku!

Green Harbor Publications has a Spam Haiku generator. This generates haiku using the subject lines from spam (with no changes or corrections to the capitalization, spelling, or punctuation).

Some of these are pretty good, you know:
This will make your day
10 things girls love about men
Your dreams have come true

Start Working Today
A babe-filled life awaits you
Plans for the day's end

No workout, lose weight
Ardorize for your woman
Russian dating site

Be cool, think different
Treat your pain with Percocet
Love them and leave them
Green Harbor Publications also has a lot of information about the Writing 69th, a group of journalists in the European theater of WWII that included Walter Cronkite, Andy Rooney, and many other notables. There are some great photos and stories.

Many thanks to Richard Hamilton for bringing this gem to my attention.
