What Donald Trump and penis patches have in common

Trump2 Some say Donald Trump has jumped the shark, but he’s still on top, along with penis patches, in the world of spam. AOL has released its list of the top 10 global spam e-mail subject lines from 2005, as measured by its spam filters. They are: 1) Donald Trump Wants You—Please Respond; 2) Double Standards New Product—Penis Patch; 3) Body Wrap: Lose 6-20 inches in one hour; 4) Get an Apple iPod Nano, PS3 or Xbox 360 for Free; 5) It’s Lisa, I must have sent you to the wrong site; 6) (xx)Breaking Stock News(xx) Small Cap Issue Poised to Triple; 7) Thank you for your business. Shipment notification (77FD87); 8) (IMPORTANT) Your Mortgage Application is Ready; 9) Thank you: Your $199 Rolex Special Included; and 10) Online Prescriptions Made Easy. In 2004, the top spam subject line was, “We carry the most popular medications.” In 2003, it was simply, “Viagra online.”
