Dickens Had Nothing On Our Spammers

I've been getting all kinds of spam these days. Nothing new about that. But some comes from imaginative imaginary people with clever Dickensian names:

* Patronizing U. Langerhans

* Dalmatian L. Hookey

* Vichyssoise H. Carnivore

I assume these names are genrated by some kind of randomizing program and are designed to trick anti-spam software. Mac Mail gets most of them, but I must say, even at the risk of being offered yet another mortgage or yet another package of fake Cialis, these names are amusing to me in my tedious little life.
