Mathematical Spam

I just received some spam from a couple of sources - It seems that folks are thinking somewhat in our terms.

The first bit was some political spam from Al Franken:

I love math. Always have. Sometimes, when I visit schools in Minnesota, I prove the Pythagorean Theorem, right there on the chalkboard.

But here’s some math I don’t love. Democrats have to defend 23 Senate seats this year. Republicans only have to defend 10. And if they take four of ours, they take control of the Senate.

Democrats are facing a real algebra problem.

X = President Romney. Y = a Republican Senate. X + Y = Z. Solve for Z.

The second one is some regular spam:

Higher Salary + New Job = A Happier You
