Dream Spam

According to the hubbie, I was talking in my sleep and giving out my email address Sunday morning. I wonder what kind of spam I'll get from the dream world? Maybe something like...

"Please your mate by taking herbal pillow enhancements! Make her snore with pleasure."

"Win money in your sleep at REM Casino!"

"Your SleepPal account has changed! Update now!"

"I am a solicitor from Pillowshameria and am officially contacting you regarding inherited funds."

"The perfect sleeping aid - Sleepytime Audio Books presents 'Bedtime Stories read by Ben Stein.' Pop in the earbuds and with Bens' perfect monotone drone, you'll be snoozing in microseconds. Sleep away as Ben reads the snoozin' classics such as 'Knitting for Dummies', '1980 North Dakota Census Results' and our favorite, 'The Grandfather Clock Maintenance Manual.' See? It even works on Ben himself!"

There was an episode of Futurama a few years back in which Fry (the character who had been cryogenically frozen by accident and revived in the year 3000) sees a commercial in his dreams for the first time. He asks Leela about it, which leads to the following exchange:

Leela: Didn't you have ads in the 20th century?

Fry: Well sure, but not in our dreams. Only on TV... and radio. And in magazines. And movies. And at ball games. And on buses, and milk cartons, and t-shirts, and written on the sky. But not in dreams. No siree!

I can't resist as this a funny coincident: My last post is about the Norwegian Troll :-) I don't think you get any spam mail from them, but maybe it was a Troll you where dreaming about?

OR maybe you were at a David Copperfield show. OH! Dark joke.

Thanks for the sleep aide suggestions:)

Giving out your email address while sleeping... Have you blogged too much lately ??

And most important... do you have a good spam filter ? :D

I think Ben Stein could have solved Sauron's terrible red-eyed problem in "The Lord of the Rings" with a giant bottle of "Clear Eyes". For all we can tell, Sauron had the worst case of bloodshot eye imaginable, and if it was cured, he might have turned into a nice guy.
