spam oddity

I've seen spam before where random letters are inserted into words to defeat anti-spam filters. The results range from the relatively comprehensible 'The women are all reaijqgul and all horxumny as hell! ' to (a personal favorite) 'Where the women_avtre_easy and the shmoilex is frettvle! ' which takes a little thought to decode.

Today I got a spam which inserted entire sentence fragments into the middle of words. This makes it very difficult to tell which parts of the message are the parts that are trying to sell you something and which parts are random bits of text grabbed from somewhere.

Great number of negroes? I think we can all agree that the shmoilex is frettvle, indeed.

(Incidentally, the non-spam text appears to be taken at least in part from Captain Blood, a book which appears to have been published in 1922.)
