Ridiculous LinkedIn Invite Messages

I get LinkedIn Invites every day and many don’t have a personal note. That’s a failure. However sending a ridiculous LinkedIn Invite note is also a failure.

I will keep adding to this list as I discover other ridiculous LinkedIn Invite notes:
(I did not correct the Grammar and spelling issues.)
(Share the text you have gotten and if it is ridiculous enough I’ll add to this list & attribute you.)
