Yes, people who wear Polo are a race

Hey, if you're gonna get going with the soft racism jokes, may as well go the full nine and not pussy out when it comes to free shit to drink.

So I just got racially profiled by GMail. The ad it was giving me at the top of the main mail index just a few minutes ago was for Polo.com. While I have talked about the Power of the Horse here on the 'blog, I don't know if I have any Ralph-related e-mail threads in there. I'm guessing it saw stuff like my BMW CCA mailing list messages and thought, hey, this guy likes blowing money on excess, so he must like Polo. GMail is always thinking. And of course, it's totally right. Like I've mentioned before with the Spam index, when I go there I want to barf, and GMail, always thinking, puts that link up above for some disgusting SPAM casserole idea.

I would be OK with the spam I get if it was more targeted like this. Sure, it's kind of a creepy invasion of privacy, but do you know what kind of information credit card companies keep on you? I don't know the details, but someone I knew who had visited American Express simply described their databases as "scary." Since we have no privacy anyway, I may as well get junk e-mails for shit that I might actually care about. I think I've made it pretty clear that I'm fine with my small dick and the volume of my ejaculations, so you're never going to get anywhere with that. Send me more shit about The Horse, and when I say "The Horse" I mean the one stitched onto my shirt, not the one supposedly in some s!ut's pssuy.

I now expect to wake up tomorrow to a shitload of e-mails from Ralph, in addition to all the ejaculation and porn ones I already get.
