Whenever I see spam that starts out with a subject or greeting like “Hey, friend,” I think of Fluffmodeus from the webcomic Something Positive:
TV Tropes describes the grotesque cute character as being “like an ’80s cartoon character who Care-Bear-Stared a little too long into the abyss…” Rippy declared him to be “the most annoying thing that’s ever existed.” Hmm, maybe he’s a spammer when he’s not haunting Kharisma? 😀
- First appearance in Life With Rippy: New Friend
- First appearance in S*P itself: The Commonwealth vs. Kharisma Valetti
Oh, and the archives…definitely not work-safe.
