Goofy Malware Lure

I'm kind of left speechless by this amateurish attempt to get unsuspecting recipients to click their way to PC infection:

Subject: Your order for chopper for the weekend

Your order for our air commuter services has been taken and processed. The rotorcraft will be at your disposal from 16.45 saturday to 7.30 p.m. wednesday. Once again, the rates are as follows:
1 hour in the air: 525$
Takeoff / Landing: 254$
1 hour standstill on the ground: 78$
Longest period in the air is 3 hours.
When flying for longer distances, a co-pilot is needed, and the cost consequently increases by 120$ per hour.

Clearly written by a non-U.S., English-as-a-third-language crook. Like so many of these messages, the link isn't to an attached document, but rather to a hijacked web site, where obfuscated JavaScript takes over.
