Recently I received an e-mail from China with the following text:
Glad to contact you!
I am a supplier of fabrics.
Please allow me to introduce my company to you. I am a company in China with a factory producing cotton corduroy, velvet and flannel. 90% of the product are for export. Where do you buy the bags from,please?maybe they will need my fabrics.
mayber we have chance to cooperate.And I will be your friend.
I found it amusing because it looks like spam but it also looks like it isn’t. Probably the sender has seen my Powerbag pages and thus knows I have some corduroy bags.

Perhaps I should start that business then?
And I will be your friend, sounded like a it’d really be worth it…
Kind of interesting that he is (apparently) surfing around the internet looking for business outlets and new friends. I guess that’s one way to drum up sales!

However — it’s also adorable:
And I will be your friend.
