Viruses and their lack of creativity

Nothing annoys me more than lack of originality. The viruses people send me are ALWAYS 39k. I mean always. Last year there were the same size also – every one of them was like 119k. (These guys must send out the same bug – cant they even make their own??) But this year they are all 39k. Today someone sent me two viruses in one email. One of them was called a .doc file but was actually a .pif file in disguise.
How big was it? 39k.
The other one was 40k which made me feel a little better – at least there is some ounce of creativity out there, even if its a variation of 1k.
