Noun the work

I was suckered into opening a piece of spam today and I was amused by the randomly generated text the spammer had used to sneak by my corporate filters. It's practically poetry!

Spam #1 is my favorite:
Never how, her color. Song we bat, back. Wheel have, stand. Dark
show divide. Bank still wide night much say. Jump state ready
skin place never. But, family was my rule. Well and three cry
some. Whether well by, better. Look glass that fish. Noun the
work. Warm of river once

Spam #2:
Grow, ]total, city buy. Does early sleep quite strange coat.
Fine, table, part write fruit. Ride don't hard see. Cry down
sentence. People, cool, board class is, cut. Whether fall for.
Thing give too energy. Felt no, chair two why among. Cross was
mine red contain by.

... but why do you suppose it doesn't want me to felt? Oh well, noun the work!

They were selling office software cheap, no really. You can't get a better price.

The text is just a ruse to get past the spam filters. If the body of the email just says "Get office productivity software extra cheap", the filters catch it as spam. But if there are enough other words, so that office softwre cheap is only a small portion of the text.. sometimes the filters don't catch it.
