Welcome to the first ever Spam Of the Week, or as I like to call it, "SOW".
Every week, or whenever I find something particularly interesting, we
feature a piece of unsolicited email or "spam" that seems to stand out for
one particularly funny reason or another. Our inaugural entry comes from the
fine folks over at "Liquidated Freight".
Public speakers know that a good way to loosen up your audience is to open with
a joke. The same concept works well for this advertisement, teasing us into
opening their message with the promise of a punch line to complete the
subject, "A Guy Walks Into A Bar...". I won't ruin the joke for you by
explaining it here but let's just say it's the best part of this spam,
unless you count the free knife.
Yes, that's right: a free knife! If a little bit of humor didn't reel you
in, this fine, multi-function, silver-looking and quite possibly
well-ventilated knife would certainly close the deal. Until, of course, you
realize that you'll need to purchase over $25 worth of close-out items
to claim your prize. Oh, but it looks so rugged against that rocky backdrop...
This message definitely wins, hands-down, as one of the best non-pornographic
advertisements I have ever received. To our newfound friends at Liquidated
Freight: For your innovative technique of luring us with a joke and following
that up with a fine quality pocketknife complete with can opener, saw,
scissors, corkscrew and, of course, blades, we present you the first ever

...and the bartender gets his drink, and someone says, "Nice Tie." The man looks around and sees nobody. Someone says, "Nice Shirt." The man asks the bartender, "Who said that?" The bartender replies, "It's the peanuts, they're complimentary."
