John Hodgman's 'Masterpiece Theater'

John_hodgman_2_2 Boing Boing tv (BBtv) has launched SPAMasterpiece Theater, a series of online episodes featuring author, Daily Show correspondent, and tweed-clad PC John Hodgman. Hodgman reads unaltered spam emails, juxtaposed with stock footage dramatizations, in a parody of Masterpiece Theater.

Hodgman describes the series as the dramatization of "true tale[s] of romance, adventure, infamy, and low-cost prescription drugs, all culled from the reams of actual, unsolicited emails, received here by us and people like you -- what we call SPAM."

Thanks to New York magazine's Vulture for bringing this to our attention.
