Chinglish Spam

Over the last couple months I've noticed an increase in the amount of spam I've received on my main e-mail address. Most of the spam has been from electronics manufacturers in China. I guess they think I want to buy the junk that American companies no longer want to purchase.

Today, a line caught my attention. "maybe it cant ends the hateful and horrible economic crisis,cooperating with us,however,you would save partial expense.dont hesitate,let'go shopping with happiness!"

I never knew the economic crisis had a hateful personality. And how much would I actually save with only a "partial expense"? The quality of writing in this e-mail (complete with Chinese phone number) is far worse than most of what my students used to hand in (plagiarized assignments not withstanding).
