Paris spam

Paris spam

Some weeks ago, I started getting Paris Hilton spam. That is to say, spam mails that included some bizarre Paris Hilton-related subject line, ranging from the faintly ridiculous to the downright surreal.

I have to say, it made a change from the usual subject lines promising Viagara or the chance to help a Nigerian businessman in distress. Here are some of my favourites so far:

  • Paris Hilton Declared National Historic Landmark.
  • Paris Hilton: The Day I Found Out Gary Glitter Is My Dad.
  • Paris Hilton’s ingrowing toenail was life-threatening: Sherrif Lee Baca.
  • Paris Hilton To Visit Rwanda, Rwandan Citizens Panic For Vaccination.
  • Paris Hilton Discovers Cure for Cancer at Home, in Her Spare Time.
  • Paris Hilton and Pope Benedict expecting a baby.
  • Paris Hilton To Operate New Atom Smasher.
  • Paris Hilton Lectures on Dickens and Dostoevsky.
  • Heiress Paris Hilton to start Children’s Book line.
  • Is Paris Burning?

Not that it stops there. I collected a couple in which Hilton merely co-stars:

  • Baron Hilton follows Paris’ lead.
  • Spears Checks Self Into Rehab — Blames Hilton For Bad Haircut.

There were even a few in which similarly-named entities took centre stage:

  • Paris Stilton no longer FHM Magazine Sexiest Women List big cheese.
  • Perez Hilton to be sworn in as Israeli President?

And, for a special bonus:

  • CNN: Aliens send us cartoon messages!

Entertaining spam subject lines seem to have dried up now, but if anyone has any other prime examples, feel free to send them to me. (The subject lines only, without the spam mail, please. Thanks.)
