This is two topics in one.
First, is the real "Spam". I'm sure most of you have at least seen it. It comes in a blue and yellow can. I'm not really sure what it's made out of, other than some unmentionable meat by-products and left overs. I've tried it and it tasted disgusting. Have any of you ever tried it?
What about "spam" as in unwanted "junk" e-mail?
Who was the "genius" that first coined that phrase and what was the thinking behind it? Or was it just one of those "cutsie" names given to computer and related items that has no real describing meaning (such as "Adobe Photo" [adobe, BTW is sun dried mud turned into fragile bricks]) or "mouse" (you'd have to be on acid to see any resemblence between a "mouse" and a mouse rodent).
