When spam and blogs conjoin, the result can be poetic
Splogs, the illegitimate lovechild of spam and blogs, are websites made to look like blogs by streaming fake posts. Instead of musings about politics and technology, splogs are filled with computer-generated gibberish meant to entice search engines to link to them and get people to click on the ads.
Splogs may wreak havoc on search engines like Google, but they provide an excellent source for found poetry. Below is a sampling of poems reconstructed from splogs found on SplogSpot and Technorati. The syntax of the splogs has been kept intact. Some words have been deleted, and some punctuation marks have been added.
