Spam hides decent content

How often do you actually read your spam? Well, these two jokes were so good that they fooled my spam filter into thinking they were regular mail:
Young Hopeful: "Father, what is a traitor in politics?
Father (a veteran politician): "A traitor is a man who leaves our party and goes over to the other one."
Young Hopeful: "Well then, what is a man who leaves his party and comes over to yours?"
Father: "A converter, my son."
AND
By the time John pulled into the little town, every hotel room was taken.
    "You've got to have a room somewhere." he pleaded. "Or just a bed--I don't care where."
    "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant," admitted the manager," and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you."
    "No problem," the tired traveler assured him. "I'll take it."
The next morning, John came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
When asked about how he slept, he replied, "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?"
    "Nope. I shut him up in no time."
    "How'd you manage that?"
    "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," John said. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful.' With that he sat up all night watching me."
