Language Torture (Online Dating Style)

I was scanning through some spam source code and encountered a rather strange lure to an online dating site. This is the line (referring to the service's customers) that got my attention (spelling and spacing left intact):

Many of them are just looking fornew friends, an occassional lover and a night stand.

Now, I know that somewhere along the line most of us have been in a relationship in which we either treated, or were treated by, someone as little more than furniture. Here, apparently, is a Web site that guarantees it. Perhaps by New Year's Eve you can aspire to a dining room table. Or an "occassional" chair.
