Uh, what?? (Help for spammers...)

So I see one of those traditonal crap spam mails as I'm perusing the junk folder just to be sure something useful didn't show up:
i am here sitting in thea internet caf!fe. Found your email and decided to a!write. I might be comin!g to your p!lace in a14 days, so I decided to email you. May be we can meet? I am 25 y.o. girl. I h!ave a picture if you awant. No need to reply here as th!is is not my email. Write me at ewkn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.info

Not that any of us would reply to such BS anyway, but the kicker for me was the (listed) sender's name:
From: "Beulah"
Question: When you read the name "Beulah", what image comes to mind? This one:

Or this one?

I mean, all I'm saying is that if you *really want* someone to click the link, your odds are higher with a name that conjures more the latter than the former, eh?[:D][:D]
