Rather odd comment spam

About a year-and-a-half ago, I wrote this very short entry, which said (in its entirety):

My car is one year and ten days old today, and I just rolled over to 10,000 km. That’s 6000 miles for the metric-impaired. I think I’ll buy her a drink. She looks thirsty.

Today I found the following comment in the moderation queue:

Easily, the post is actually the best on this deserving topic. I harmonize with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your forthcoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be adequate, for the extraordinary lucidity in your writing. I will right away grab your rss feed to stay privy of any updates. Fabulous work and much success in your business efforts!

Now let’s see…

  1. The comment is longer than the entry itself.
  2. It did not contain any links to questionable web sites.

Either someone is being sarcastic, or I have been hit by the world’s worst comment spammer.

Comment: Mark as Spam. Click. Done.

    I have been training in noticing irony. You have published someone’s comment and commented that it is spam. My car is 14.5 years old and has over 120,000 km. It’s amazing what trivia I discover when looking up the website of an out-of-contact friend with a memorable website name.
