Interesting Spam

Interesting Spam

Just thought I'd share this, because it may be one of the most interesting spam subjects I've ever received. Does anybody know if it has another meaning?

Er macht sich daran, seinen Esel Finnegan in ein Rennpferd zu verwandeln.

Brief Googling indicates this comes from a summary of episode 114 of Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks. The German source is evidently here.

I confess I was hoping for a more interesting source, like Karl May or maybe a translation of Somerville and Ross.
