I put up with advertising for one of two reasons -- either it is financially supporting content that I want to read/watch or the advertisement is for a product I would consider purchasing. Otherwise, I promptly ignore it.
A few minutes ago I got an email entitled "The Blonde and the Sheep" from a person with a believable email address. I didn't know who they were, but I was curious. Inside was a joke about, well, a blonde and a sheep. It wasn't really funny, but below it was this:
Good day. First of all, sorry for inconvenience. I have decided to put one of the best jokes to each of my advertising messages. I promise you to choose one of the best jokes each day, hope it would decrease your irritation of my messages.
And, of course, :-) I need to offer you some goods. I always take only the best offers for my audience, usually I test it by myself. 100% quality, low prices, fast delivery. I hope, this joke about the blonde was new and funny for you. Today i want to offer you absolutely new Penis Enlargement Patch.

I've gotta say, if I'm going to receive spam, which is more or less unavoidable, I'd rather get messages like this. I'm not really a dumb blonde joke kinda guy, but maybe one day in the future, spammers will know my tastes and include content I'd actually like (knock-knock jokes) alongside ads for penis pills.
Of course, I'm not in the market for penis pills, so maybe it would make more sense to grab something from the Truly Tasteless Jokes book. Then you'll sell the penis pills like hotcakes.
