Spam Filter Comedy

You have heard about a new spam/virus e-mail technique that involves a purported "CNN Top Ten." I got another version of it in my work spam e-mail today, and while I chose not to open it, I admired just how creative some of the headlines were: - BREAKING NEWS: Obama is gay. Watch the Proof. - BREAKING NEWS: NASA to use Space Shuttles to Kill Birds - BREAKING NEWS: Army Relent On Shooting Live Pigs In Training Exercise - Will Shoot Illegal Immigrants Instead - BREAKING NEWS: Ufos Sighted Over Uk
BREAKING NEWS: Angelina Jolie Pregnancy. 'it Was All A Hoax!' - BREAKING NEWS: Naked Janet Jackson Video Goes Online -
BREAKING NEWS: John Mccain Selects Laura Bush As His Vice - BREAKING NEWS: Gay Bishop Was A Wrestling Pro
That last one's my favorite. And it's probably been true at some point.
