Jesus Christ Retarded Operating

That was the subject line of some spam I just received. The email itself didn't live up to its advance billing.

Does a 'collective unconscious' exist? If it does, do spammers channel it for a living?

If both answers are 'yes', then that subject line might indicate some change might be going on under the surface of things.

Yeah, I know, pretentious. But 'retarded operating' - that's almost like one of those metaphor things the brainiacs keep blabbering on about.

I hope you didn't send your bank account numbers to that guy in Nigeria whose dad used to be the King of Nigeria but got killed in the revolution and left 20 million in the bank and needs you to help him get some out so he can feed the poor starving queen and about 8 princesses for half the money.
