Granite joystick

You know the spam you get with random words in the subject? (It's an attempt to fool Bayesian filters, a recent anti-spam technique that flags spam based on how many of the words in it have also been seen in other spam, compared to how many words in it have also been seen in non-spam mail.) I figured an email with the subject "granite joystick" was of that ilk. Until I realized it was a Viagra ad. (Excuse me, the ad was for "Viagrá" -- note the accent over the final 'a'. For precisely the reasons mentioned above.)
