Call out Gouranga be happy!!!

I don’t get much spam any more. Greylisting keeps 99% of it out so when spam does get through it’s a surprise.
This morning I received the following from

Call out Gouranga be happy!!!
Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga ….
That which brings the highest happiness!!

Looks like lots of other people received this mail too!
The Urban Dictionary has a humorous definition of gouranga:

A word that appears on motorway bridges in north west UK. It’s only purpose is to annoy drivers who are left with a nagging curiosity for the rest of their day until the next day when it ceases to become important ever again.

Funny, you posted this one year ago, but I just received this email a few minutes ago, and I went looking to find out what Gouranga is. I’m still not sure I get it…

I’ve been seeing the word “sploodal” on t-shirts. When I Google it, I just find t-shirts but no definition.
