Sometimes, very strange mail makes it through my spam filter. (I use the server-side program SpamAssassin to simply reject obvious spam, then I filter the rest via my mail program based on SpamAssassin’s score. That works fabulously well.) Here’s a recent head-scratcher that made it into my inbox:

Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2008 19:42:41 -0400
From: “I will be a total Sheriff”
Subject: Clarification. Herbert West III, Candidate for Sheriff.
To: [email protected]

..I have shown and will continue to show, that I will remove and expose any and all corruption and problamatics. I refuse to give anyone, to include those who feel their stature as a cop places them above the law, any different special consideration. I will be a total Sheriff, not a paid puppet who protects corruption….

Um, okay, dude. Best of luck with that.
