Strange and Hilarious Subject Lines That Made Our Day!

Hi guys! It’s summer. Time of vacations, but we’re at work. Let’s have some fun! We’re pretty sure that you receive tons of emails from prospectors on a daily basis. Some of them you read and find valuable. While others remain unread and go to the trash bin of your mailbox. It heavily depends on the subject line, to be honest.

As buyers become increasingly demanding copywriters do their best to create a subject line that stands out. It’s really hard to capture the attention in the era of informational abundance. Some of the subject lines reach your heart, but some… Well, they’re strange and thus hilarious, to say the least. Let’s take a look:
