I stumbled upon this gem, and it opened my eyes to new possibilities of spelling (and lots of other liguistic innovations):

Link farm Nov 15, 2005

The typos are deliberate - that way they will get more hits from the search engines. The page is part of a link farm promoting a certain dealer.

Thanks... Nov 15, 2005

I was wondering, because it was too bad even for mad MT. But then why bother to make it look like a text, with some more understandable sentences and a whole page of other garble?

I wasn't even looking for 'telephone system', and it would certainly put me off the rest of the sites.
