Junk Mail

Yesterday, we received, in the mail, an envelope with "This Is Not Junk Mail" printed in big letters on the outside. Somehow, that declaration strengthened my belief that it was, indeed, snail spam. Perhaps the senders should rethink their marketing.


  1. Isn't there some Named Internet Law to the effect that the more a message trumpets its authenticity and value, the less authentic and valuable it is?

  2. If not, I guess we can call it Nick's Law.

    Oh, and by the way, this message is entirely spam and completely worthless.

  3. I'm not sure that the converse of Nick's law is true.
