Dada Spam

In the body of a Spam e-mail advertising a technique to "bigger your d11ck":
you miserable wrong off. window letters benefit reference. out embarrass use did out goes.least nothing companion slow night.young across social love? fascinate letters miserable force leader?yours yours again principle. thus wife leader fascinate social a? here force promised drew goes?anything teach development she. she leader friends social, love embarrass companion.
Where do these come from? Are they written by machine, thus to create large numbers of unique e-mails and refute the idea that a single "mass-mailing" is going out? Are they purposefully composed this way by a human being to defeat spam filters? Are they translated from another language? Is it the ghost of Gertrude Stein, floating around the internet, trying to sing to us one last time?

Isn't "fascinate letters miserable force leader" a fun way to describe George Bush... haplessly enraptured by "My Pet Goat" while his country falls around him? Also, I'm going to have to invent a "yours yours again principle" and start citing it in class.
