My Lucky Day…Treet Me Right…

Filed under: Knee-Slappingly Funny — dangrdave @ 3:06 am

Well, ever since I’ve had my blog at WordPress, I have to go in and periodically delete my many Spam comments.  Today, I went in and deleted some Spam, and received the following message:

Akismet has caught 348 spam for you since you first installed it.

You have no spam currently in the queue. Must be your lucky day. 🙂

But, I wonder if it really is my lucky day.  If the figures add up in my head (yes, I carried the “1”), my blog has, to date, received more Spam than it has received “real” comments.  How lucky is that, to have readers who never comment, while tons of Spammers are offering me free vacations and guaranteed male enhancement products, without even reading my work?  If they would bother to read my blog, they would know that they should be offering me a free stay at a comfortable place with padding on the walls.

Anyway, here is a set of “bonus questions” to get you, the “no-comment” reader thinking and, perhaps, inspire you to comment to let me know that you’re out there…bueller…bueller?

Bonus Question 1: Is Treet potted-meat product the poor man’s Spam, or is Spam the poor man’s Treet?

Bonus Question 2: Did you know that Spam comes in the following flavors: Original, Hot and Spicy, Low Sodium, Light, Oven Roasted, Hickory Smoked, with Bacon, with Cheese, with Garlic, Golden Honey Grail, and Mild?

Bonus Question 3: Did you know that Weird Al wrote a song about Spam, indicating that “if there’s some left, don’t just throw it out…use it for Spackle or bathroom grout”?

Bonus Question 4: Did you know that I am not aware of any song ever having been written about Treet?

Bonus Question 5: Did you know that just writing about potted meat is causing me to get really bad gas pains?



  1. 1) They’re so bad that the answer to both of your questions is Yes!
    2) You left out Stinky French Garlic.. it is the true Holy Grail sir.
    3) Honestly, is there anything Weird Al has not written a song about? I’m a nerd so my fav is “It’s All About The Pentiums”.
    4) I must admit at this point I’ve never heard of Treet before your post. If it’s not associated with Monty Python I really don’t care to know about it anyways! Now go bring me a shrubbery.
    5) I did not know that (spoken in a horrible attempt to sound like Johnny).

    I’m curious, if I were to offer you a free vacation (maybe even throw in some bonus C!@L1S) in this comment would it get counted twice? Once as a “real” comment (which is debatable) and once as spam spam spam spam?

  2. @ Thomas: Throw in some reduced-price health insurance and I’d for sure count it as Spam.

  3. According to SurelyYoureNotSerious.com’s wordpress…
    “Akismet has caught 11,220 spam for you since you first installed it.”

    So don’t feel bad.

  4. Bueller reporting sir!! Yeah I don’t think you’ve ever introduced me to the wonderful world of Treet either…but hey what a treat it is! Now I can just see myself…sitting down beside Steph…whipping out my Treet and Spam and making a Spreet sandwich. Add a little mustard and you are good to go!! 🙂
