The Poop Scoop?

I received an email from someone purporting to belong to a "fashion" community. The email said "I saw your septic tank advisor blog and was impressed by it. Please join our community to talk about fashion."

Um. My septic tank advisor blog, which is really my husband's on my account, is just an aggregate blog with links to news articles about septic tanks. It has no original content. It definitely doesn't talk about clothes. It links to articles about septic tank regulations, new productions, and problems people have with solid waste disposal.

So what does that have to do with fashion? Am I supposed to give fashion tips on porta-potties? The best apparel for bathroom visits? Don't wear heels so your knees won't be too high when you sit down? Wear skirts with no hose or panties for fastest relief? Watch your zipper, skipper, or you'll lose your you-know-what in the zip-up?

Sheesh.

  2. Sounds like they just plug in the information and send the email on it's way, hoping you'll click on it. Weird people out there, eh?

  3. That is so funny! Such emails would be very entertaining if they weren't so aggravating.

  4. I thought it was just me! I will be covering the fashion aspect of dairying and barn manure removal, and you get the septic tank line. I can get the kids to model for us. I wonder what kind of blog traffic we will get?

  6. I get these too. I think of them as computer robots in closets posing as real people.

  7. I think I prefer this sort of mail to mail received from real, but certifiably insane, people.
