Cad é an Gaeilge do spam?

Good god, I just received spam from a Chinese electronic goods firm as Gaeilge. Looks like someone’s having great fun with Google Translate. Had they not heard of Babelfish?

Amazon.com Universal Wish List

In case you missed it, Amazon.com has a wonderful new tool for adding items from any website to your Amazon wish list, so you can create a central repository of Stuff You Want. All you need to do is add a bookmarklet to your browser – instructions are provided – and click on it when you see Stuff You Want. Fill in a few details in a window that will pop up and you’re good to go, or rather your friends and family are when they feel you’ve Been Good.

Unfortunately it’s not available on the laggardly Amazon.co.uk yet, but that doesn’t really have an impact on functionality. Just make sure you send people to both when you’re scumming for Stuff. :)
