Dimensionally inconsistent(?) spam

Received at my Penn e-mail address today: spam with the subject line "Increase girth and inches in one easy step!"

Presumably "inches" means "inches of length". (I'll leave it to you to figure out what length they're trying to increase.)

But I couldn't help but notice that they really should have said "girth" and "length", naming both the quantities. (Or "inches" and "inches", naming both the dimensions, but that would be silly and redundant.)

I am curious as to what the one easy step is. Also, will the "girth and inches" be increased in proportion to one another?

It's such a relief to discover that other people are bombarded by these emails.

Hmmm. Maybe that means that the emails I get, promising to make me thinner, richer, less ugly, smarter, and better provided with nice trinkets are not directed at me personally!

Isabel: Wow! I always received such spam but never thought "deeply" about it. You sure have a presence of mind. I'm impressed!
