Spam, spam, spam, spam...

Woke up to this wonderful spam email:

"Hi,
I just found your Comic Book blog entry: http://shawnhoke.blogspot.com/ and I
think you may be of some help to me. I'm reaching out to you on behalf of M80
& Marvel regarding the X-Men MiniMates Collection. The X-Men MiniMate set is
being described as the most eagerly anticipated Marvel Minimates collection ever.
Since you are a fan of Comic Book, I thought that you might be interested in
posting the press release or post a review of the Collection on your blog? You
seem like a reputable influencer, so I think you'd be a big help to us.
Please let me know if you're interested!
Thanks!
Brandon, M80"

I'm not sure I want to miss out on "the most eagerly anticipated Marvel Minimates collection ever." I didn't even really know I needed an X-Men MiniMate set until this email. Now, I'm starting to feel like it's something I can't live without. Look for a future review from this "reputable influencer." You know all the X-men fans flock to SIZE MATTERS.

This is my favorite bit:
"You seem like a reputable
influencer"

But the broken English on this part cracks me up too:
"Since you are a fan of Comic Book"

Boy, Shawn, they've got you pegged!

Aren't we all a fan of "Comic Book," Aaron?

Dude, you should totally change the name of your blog to "Reputable Influencer: Comic Book".
