Strange Spam

I've been getting some very strange spam lately, and GMail isn't sophisticated enough to filter it. This is unfortunate, because I get a LOT of messages - sometimes more than 5 per day. There is English in these messages, but it's all nonsense, and then there's an image pushing Viagra and the like.

Even though I hate getting the spam, I have to laugh at the verbiage they come up with. Here's an example of a recent one:

I can't decide if this is someone in a foreign country writing this stuff, or a random language generator. Something tells me it's the latter. I'd love for Google to figure out a way to filter this garbage out, as well.
