Letters From Nigeria: Yet Another Design Crack Thang
My close friends sometimes call me crazy for my impulse to constantly buy new domain names. I buy one for every weird idea that pops in my head. You never know when it might come in handy, right? Besides, they cost less than a dollar a month to register. In the past year, I’ve registered orareyoujusthappytoseeme.com, designsthatsuck.net, yahoomazon.com (for my mashup hobby), and yourule.us (a name with some serious potential, I think). Recently, I’ve been getting some whacked emails from Nigerian scammers that are just too funny to keep to myself. So on Saturday, I created LettersFromNigeria.com, a place for my funny spam to reside. My thought for this project is to do nothing and just let the good spam come to me. I was thinking of having contests where people send in their favorite spams with a chance to win prizes for best spam grammar, most number of exclamation points used, or most like avant garde poetry. Or maybe I could hire famous actors to recite beautifully composed spam letters. The ideas are endless.
If anyone has some ideas of how to make this a fantastic and fun site then please leave a comment and let me know what you’d like to see.
