Fake transfer market more interesting than real transfer market

My work e-mail account has an aggressive spam filter that rounds up all that junk and then sends me a summary of the flagged messages once a day showing the sender's address and the subject line for each message. The subject lines can be amusing and are worth checking out for a laugh or two. Usually it's "Man eats dog alive" or "Tornado destroys New York City." Both of those were real messages spammers tried sending me, by the way.

Anyway, here's one from today:

AC Milan buys Drogba and Adebayor

Interesting enough to almost make me want to open the message and hear the spammer's pitch for amazingly cheap wang-growing pills.
