Spam: White Dude Had It Rough, Wants To Show You His Helicopter

Here’s a spam we keep getting for some reason, despite the fact that the sender, Gary Coxe, isn’t going to trick us into hiring him for a weekly column about how to struggle against adversity (or whatever it is he expects to get out of emailing a shopping site). Here’s his classy message, today sent with the headline, “Frey’s book allegedly a scam!? Want to do a story on a TRUE tragedy story?”

His wife told him his baby wasn’t his, [Gosh, why ever would she do that? -Ed.]

His father was murdered,

His Uncle was killed in a plane crash,

Grandfather and stepfather died of cancer,

Lost a hundred thousand dollar a year business as a teenager,

Had $30,000 cash in the bank and lost it all,

All this and much more happened to Gary in about 4 years _ all by the time he was 21 years old.
But he has bounced back now!
So, today Gary owns several businesses and pilots his own private airplane and helicopter
– he truly walks his talk.

We’d link you to his website but it’s full of popups. Besides, if you really want to learn about this, you’ll pick yourself up by your bootstraps and fight through gale force winds filled with snakes surfing on shards of glass to kill the men who stand between you and a Google text entry box.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot, he’s ugly too.

    “Gary Coxe” sounds like a Romanian gay porn star.

    Also, the headline for the post is my front-runner for best Gawker Headline of 2006. Just thought I’d get the polling started early.

    The helicopter behind Mr. Coxe also appears to be a Robinson, which is the Kia of helicopters. It would be like my saying “I have an exotic sports car!” and bringing out a fiberglass-bodied MG on a Volkswagen chassis.

    He crashed his helicopter on take off once and then a month later crashed a different helicopter on a failed landing.And last i heard had sold his flight school due to the inability to obtain insurance.And yes they were both robinsons witch are both the cheapest and most dangerous to fly.But all small helicopters are difficult to maneuver bigger is better.He used them because he ran a flight school with them and insurance companies wont insure training first time training in 2 million dollar bell 407’s

    Nobody’s perfect!
    We need more inspiration today than ever. If you actually take a look at the people that inspire, they pretty well all have the same message and of course they are trying to sell something.
    It would be great if this inspiration was free but that’s not reality since we all have to make a living.

    I agree the website is not that great at all!
