My Son the Spam Copywriter...

I've got three kids - two boys and a girl. Ages 7, 5, and 3. My two boys share a bedroom, and last night while getting them into bed I noticed this sign on their door. I'm not sure when it was made and how long it was there, but it took me a minute to "translate" it.

Ceep UTO, no Gerl's.  Only Boy's.

Once I read it, twice... Aha! Cute! Classic message for a bedroom door of two boys.

It reminds me of spammers attempts to only slightly obfuscate text of their messages in such a way as to avert textual spam filtering heuristics, but still be translated by a human upon reading it.

If you think about it, our minds translate simple typeos easly and quikly - sort ov on the flie. See whut I meen?

Anyway, AJ either has a career ahead of him writing copy for spammers, or he's slightly dyslexic and may have to hang back in 1st grade for a second time... :)
