One thing that continues to both baffle me and bring me joy is the never-ending collection of erectile dysfunction Cialis and Viagra emails in my spam folder.

For one, I’m a chick.

That said, I do have a unisex name, so suppose I can see how I might sneak into their email targeting criteria. But what I still can’t explain is why these emails are sent from Canada.

How does this happen?

Who out there is so sure that I am a male Canadian citizen with erectile dysfunction?

Maybe I pissed somebody off, some way, somehow. Maybe this person had my email address and felt that it would be a good blow (no pun intended) to add my email to a penis pill mailing list. Could it have been out of spite?

Or maybe somebody thought that it would be funny, like a prank, that would just make my day? Needless to say, being associated with a penis is funny enough. But a Canadian penis that doesn’t work properly… now that’s a real treat.

And here’s the best part: The emails include a coupon for 20 PERCENT OFF my first shipment!

So now I’m a male Canadian with penis problems, in a financial bind. I simply cannot afford to get it up anymore, eh.

I look forward to my next visit to my junk mail folder so I can see more mail about my junk. Can’t wait for the next batch of coupons, and if I grow a dick that needs a boost, I will seriously consider these offers.
