There is no way this could have been anything other than SPAM – and I don’t mean the processed meat product.
This morning I got an email that was congratulating me for some sort of “achievement” – here is the text of the email:

This is a bad joke. It’s a joke, because I’ve never worked for a company (other than the US Army and a few fast food franchises) that even had enough “colleagues” to have made this nomination in the numbers the email reports. It’s a bad joke because I haven’t worked for ANYONE in the last year.
