I see this all the time and just now realize I have no idea what it means.

"The contents of your mail are well digested."

Shocked I understand they're trying to say they've read and paid attention to you. (They only think they need to say that when they aren't, of course.) But- where on earth does this come from. I understand screwing up common sayings, but... digested?

Most of my emails probably give them gas.

Actually, that one makes sense to me.

To digest is to break something down. It is also used -slightly incorrectly- by a lot of people to mean absorption (taking in) as well.

Think readers digest for a similar use of the word.

I think they just use the thesaurus a bit too much. It can sometimes remind me of that friends episode where Joey writes some kind of speech and uses synonyms for almost every word.

Maybe they were just really hungry, and ate your email. Ask them to please stop doing that, it's not healthy. Very Happy
