I love randomized spam subject lines. Unfortunately, the spammers changed their algorithms some time ago and I get fewer subject lines that make my brain cells spin these days.

Today, pick an everyday item that it seems no one in their right mind would forge (use fruitcake if it gives you ideas!) and free-write or write a short story to delve into this mystery.
