Technical Recruiters Crack me Up

I just received an email from some recruiter who most likely found my resume on Monster or Dice. I keep meaning to pull those resumes, but being so lazy, I haven't gotten around to it yet. Besides, it provides opportunities for high humor like this. The subject, I think, says it all:
Jr. Java Developers

And, just for good measure, here's the first graph:
If you are still available and are interested ih[sic] the following job,send me your updated resume. We have the foll requirement in Boston, MA
To which I so graciously replied.

I'm not currently available or looking for contract work out of state, but more importantly...how on earth could you read my resume and try to marry it with a Jr. Java Developer position? You might want to reexamine it, and the criteria and metrics by which you evaluate talent.

Gosh, I hope Shawn gets back to me. Sure it's like shooting fish in a barrel, but I could use some cheap laughs this week.
