Marcy vs. Spam. Kind of.
(buying via the affiliate links may result in Marcy and Penelope Kitten getting more treats)
Marcy is sitting at the computer responding to reader comments. She is smiling from ear to ear.
Marcy (gloating): I’m famous.
Cynthia: Oh… not quite yet.
Marcy: Oh yes. Everyone loves me. We’ve got 704 comments in our queue.
Cynthia (startled): What? That can’t be right.
Marcy: It’s right all right. Our readers love me. Here’s what they are saying –
I much prefer informative articles like this to that high brow literature.
You have more useful info than the British had colonies pre-WWII.
The genius store called, they’re running out of you.
Unparalleled accuracy, unequivocal clarity, and undeniable importance!
Call me wind because I am absolutely blown away.
Marcy: See? I’m famous and adored. People think I’m smart and talented.
Cynthia: Oh Marcy, that’s SPAM.
Marcy: Oh I love SPAM!!
Cynthia: No. SPAM isn’t real. It’s fake. It means –
Marcy (interrupting): Listen to this SPAM: “I just hope whoever writes these keeps writing more!”
Cynthia: Yeah… but…
Marcy (ecstatically): I’m so excited! I’m going to write another post right away so I get even more wonderful wonderful SPAM!
Marcy happily starts banging away at the keyboard. Cynthia doesn’t have the heart to tell her the truth.
Penelope Kitten emerges from her hiding spot under the sofa.
penelope kitten (licking her chops): i heard there’s spam.
Hahaha! Oh Penelope Kitten! I’m sorry to hear people are spamming you, thought. Maybe you could set up some filters? The funniest spam I ever saw was one that went something like this: “This s**t is spam. Delete this if you don’t want more s**t.”
Although that “call me wind” one is absolutely hilarious, and I want to do my best to incorporate it into modern vernacular now. Meow!
The good news is that I have a spam filter so they go directly in there. But, I think they are seriously messing up my Google analytics. Grrr….
I just love the ballet kitty pic at the top!!! And of course the P-Kitty shot 🙂 I didn’t realize you got so much Spam. You’ve been doing a great job of keeping it off the blog, I haven’t seen any.
I’ve got a filter so luckily it never ends up on the site. I’m up to over 2,000 spam comments. Crazy!
Wow… so much more interesting than the usual, “I made eleventy billion dollars this month working at home! Click here to find out how:”
We still love you Marcy and Penelope. You are famous to us.
(This won’t be good enough for them, will it???)
Co-sign on loving the artwork…
Nope – they are in a fierce competition to see who will be more famous. It’s kinda scary. 😉
Was yesterday THE DAY for spam??? Some kind of national Spam Holiday? All of the hackers and scammers got together, and picked July 16? Or is it some astrological thing?
You won’t believe what happened with my phone…
Lol! 704 comments…that’s just wrong! They hit me up last week w/ about 100, but 700?? I guess that’s what happens when u r famous 🙂
I’m up to 2,500 now. It’s crazy! And starting to make me really angry! Ah well…
crazy! you can delete them and then disable comments for that post…that’s what I finally had to do last year.
Oh my gosh! Thank you for that tip! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that – it is all from one post! You are a genius!! xoxo
Oh man, I think both kinds of Spam sound icky! 🙂
I can see why Marcy is savoring the spam…very flattering.
Love the smiling dancing kitty.
I can’t believe she’s so gullible! 😉
LOL. Oh my gosh – I get this same garbage too. I always love when the spam bot has a username like “Porn” or “Kristina Sex.” And then the comment is about discount football jerseys or a hermit crab crawling out of a seashell held to someone’s ear. What the heck? It’s nonsense. I’ve gotten some better ones lately, though. They’re clearly spammers, but the comment will be “Looking sharp today!” or “You’re such an inspiration!” lol. They’re getting smarter! We better watch out!
Looks like we are both getting hit with the same “bot”! Aaaarghhhh!!! Merrie told me that I can turn comments off for that one post that they are hitting but I can’t seem to figure out how to do that yet. I’m still trying to navigate WordPress.
