The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

So what did I do to deserve spam in German?

Ich Liebe dich!
Die Liebe wird gewinnen!
Ohne dich bin ich nur ein halber Mensch!

There's a lot more, and it all links back to, owned by S-H-F E-Marketing, in a place called Shimshit, Israel. Feel free to write your own jokes; I'm sure Mr. Half A Man there won't mind.

The idea of being loved by someone in Shimshit makes my iglia shrivel.

Oh, never mind- I recognize superior humor when I read it.

The last line reads best if you translate all but the second word into English: "without 'dich' I am only half a man!". But 'dich' means "you", so get your mind out of the gutter.

I thought it said "I am a Berliner!"

Hey, I get spam in Italian. No idea why. It just started one day, and never stopped.
