Most literal spam ever

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on March 16, 2009

We get a lot of blog spam, much of it asking for exposure for new “green” products or ridiculous press releases from various PR firms about how some executive rode a bike to work this one time.  We’ve even considered starting a blog spam of the week feature.  Today’s was too good to pass up:

Please be aware that the deadline to submit Proposal Briefs for, “Seeking Value Added Applications of Pork By-products” is Friday, March 20, 2009. Please let me know if you are interested in responding but cannot provide a proposal brief by this date. This reminder does not represent a complete description of the project.

I took a second to document the day and time (2:08pm EDT, March 16, 2009) on which I received a spam soliciting innovation in the actual spam-making arena.
