Weekly Pakistani Spam

I have to give the Pakistani leather vendors credit. They sure are aggressive and love to use search engines to identify places to market their poorly-made, low-quality, leather products.

At least once each week, sometimes more frequently, something like this appears in my email:

Well, at least this one was entertaining. “We also work on party design.” Giggle. So if I won’t buy cheap junk from him, he will organize my next party? What’s with that?

“I am very hoppy to serve.” The Easter Bunny would be pleased to know that.

It comes via my “write to me” page on my website — where it clearly says,


If you are from Pakistan, do NOT write to me to sell me stuff. I am NOT interested!

اگر اپ سے پاکستان میں نہیں. مجھے نہیں کرنا
چاہتے ہیں خریدنے کا سستے کباڑ.


The language is Urdu, which is the predominant language of Pakistan. I guess the people who go to the trouble to send me their messages cannot or refuse to read, or choose to ignore, “if you are from Pakistan, I do not want to buy your cheap junk.”

Life is short: callin’ ’em as I see ’em.
