10,000 Monkeys Writing Spam

They say that ten thousand monkeys typing on ten thousand typewriters would eventually write the complete works of William Shakespeare. Our over-qualified team of spam poetry researchers has recently found evidence that the spammers of the world may fulfill that prophecy.

Using state-of-the-art spam poetry analysis tools, our staff has determined that some of the spam-embedded poetry that we’ve received actually corresponds to parts of Jules Vernes’ classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

These spammers, working independently, have begun to weave the fabric of one of the greatest works of literature. We will continue to monitor this remarkable phenomenon and will provide updates as we identify subsequent passages from that great book.

Here’s a sampling of the Jules jewels that we’ve encountered:

Similar facts were observed on the 23rd of July in the same year, in the Pacific Ocean, by the Columbus, of the West India and Pacific Steam Navigation Company.
