The haunting, cryptic poetry of spam

So, I was gonna post my own creepy search strings for your edification and amusement, and also so I could go report my findings to the PO-lice. Unfortunately, most of my search strings are pretty boring. I was gonna head this one with PORN!!!11!!! just to see if I got anything interesting.

But then I checked my spam filter, and frankly, now I'm intrigued. What, if anything, is any of this from? anyone?

people do not understand the meaning of nipples and what they can do to our souls

I'm still trying to decode this bit. I feel strongly that if I can successfully parse its true meaning, I will have found the Answer. To Everything.

>She seemed to gravitatethings fail to materialise? NOTHING MATERIALISES! Everything withers inseemed to take pleasure in his social functions, he smiled, and waslife that had caused the accident? A man can live by accident, and dievoice that was too casual.>

Nothing materialises. Yet everything withers. Very nihilistic *and* seemingly self-contradictory; if it hasn't materialized in the first place, how can it wither? And from there, we see the hidden path to freedom. Nothing exists; therefore, nothing fades. Therefore, we are immortal, transcendent, timeless.

damn, I'm good. Tibs! Tibs! goddamit, where is Tibs when you need him. TIBS!! I have something important to share with you! It's all right if you WANT to send money, EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO. There is no God! There is no reality! Everything is possible!

so, send me money already.

that is: send me money, because nothing materializes, therefore there is no such thing as materialism. Therefore, I do not ask you for your money because I am greedy; I ask you to send me money so that you, too, can realize *just how meaningless it is.*

I'm almost certain that the spammers nick etexts from Project Gutenberg, which is probably the largest freely-available corpus of well-edited standard English prose available online.

Wow. What is the power of nipples? What can they do to our souls?

do not ask, O innocent one. (retreats, darkly muttering)
