The opening lines of a junk e-mail recently received:

To $pam, or not to $pam: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in
the Accounts Receivable to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous
Net Tyrants of "sanctified commerce", Or to take up Bulk Advertising
against a sea of anonymity, And by opposing Net Tyranny , to end
obscurity? To go Chapter 13: to sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we
end our business growth, The heart-ache and the thousand financial
shocks That a thriving business is heir to, 'tis a consummation Devoutly
to be wish'd. To be bankrupt or wish you were, to sleep; To sleep:
perchance to dream of profit: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of
mere employment, what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this
mortal business coil, Must give us pause. There's the respect of a
thriving business.

Which of course poses the question:  Would a spam with any other claim
sell as sweet?
