This Is What Happens When You Reply To Spam Email

Data Breach

James Veitch is a British writer and comedian.

How he ended up on a TED Talk stage with this bit of techo-stand up, I dunno.

But he hit it out of the park with “This Is What Happens When You Reply to Spam Email.”

I highly recommend.

It’s about 9 minutes — an eon by internet levels of concentration — but damn funny.  And a smidge educational.

Perhaps even “inspirational”… Next time I get one of these emails, my inner Veitch may be inspired to fire a few salvos in response.

Veitch has a book (which sounds pretty good) and shows you can see on his bio.

Thanks for the laughs, James.

But, ah no, I’m not answering your emails.
