Did Someone Invest in Paprika Futures?

spam lite
I got the following spam this afternoon.

From: "Tech Support" <service@hvr4s.com>
To: <jgm@mydomain> (an address that must be randomly generated)
Subject: Reverting with the information you asked for.

Recipe for great BBQ Sauce:

1 quart apple cider vinegar
1 (20 ounce) bottle ketchup
1/4 cup paprika
1 pound dark brown sugar
1/4 cup salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 tablespoons red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice

In a large container, mix together the apple cider vinegar, ketchup,
paprika, brown sugar, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder,
Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Pour into an empty vinegar bottle,
ketchup bottle or other container and store in the refrigerator for up to
1 month.

Unless they've got lots of Worcestershire stock to move when everyone decides this is the best BBQ sauce EVAR, I don't see the purpose of this spam. hvr4s.com is registered with an address in Quebec. A google search for the domain turns up only another LiveJournal post for a message from the same address but with notable quotes.

That recipe would be better with bacon.

I wonder if this type of spam is meant to check e-mail addresses.. Like, if you respond with "Wow, that was good" or "who the hell is this?" then they know your address goes to a real person and they can sell it for more.

That actually looks pretty tasty. But yeah, what was the point of that spam? Cookbook advertising?
