The Spam Obituaries

Ever get one of those spam e-mails with a really weird name in the reply-to field? William Ridenhour writes obits for these fictional folks.

Burbled H. Teeniest 1964 – 2006
The smallest man on earth until his timely death, Burbled H. Teeniest measured a mere 9 inches tall. His unusual first name came from having a mother with a terrible speech impediment. When entering his name into the Births Register, the registrar had such difficulty understanding her he gave up and made something up. And as she was burbling that’s exactly what came to mind. And it stuck, if for no other reason than his mother could say it. [Link, via Boing Boing]
