"She took everything with her when she left him. Her clothes, her book, even her cat, the whole nine yards!"

The unsolicited advertisements and flyers you get in the mail, both at home and in your email account.
"I'm sick of junk mail! I get a hand full from the post office and then 100 spam emails in my inbox. When will it end?"
