Strange Things Spam Has Tried to Sell Me: Frozen Squid Tube

squid tube.jpg

From time to time, I like to go through my spam folder to see if there are any oddities beyond the genital growth adverts and barrister scams. It keeps me up on the latest desperate clangs in the global machine.

Today, I got a gem: frozen squid tube you can buy by the ton! Imagine having a couple thousand pounds of wingless squid bodies out in the garage. Never would a day go by when you couldn't fry up some delicious calamari.
