No, this isn’t a spam blog – this is a blog about spam! Spam Carnival is for people who actually enjoy reading their spam emails. From spelling errors to strange products, from outrageous claims to hidden poetry, spam email can actually provide the language nerd with hours of entertainment. The purpose of this blog is not only to amuse you, but also to show you that what goes in your junk mail folder might actually be worth a look. Post by post, you will see common themes both obvious and not-so obvious, such as product choice, purported names of email’s sender, stylistic choices, and so on.
Spam Carnival is the brainchild of a bored twenty-something named Candice with too much free time on her hands. When she isn’t reading spam emails, hanging out at a bar with her friends, eating sushi, or sitting on the train reading queer and gender theory during her daily commute. She is from and lives in Brooklyn.
