Try something like this:

Header                __ junksubject1        Subject =~ /junk subject 1/i

Header                __ junksubject2        Subject =~ /junk subject 2/i

meta                     junksubject    (__junksubject1 && __junksubject2)
Score                     junksubject        20.0

Describe              junksubject        blocked subject lines
