Perhaps coincidently, while I was out of town earlier this week on a
business trip, it appears that someone (probably some spammer) took it
upon himself/herself to send out a bunch of spam E-mails which looked

If and when I catch the perp, I'm going to have my attorney pound his balls
flat with a very heavy legal mallet.
