Thursday Thoughts – SPAM.

Spam is a brand of canned precooked meat products made by Hormel Foods Corporation. It was first introduced in 1937 and became popular worldwide after its use during World War II by Allied Troops. In 2007, the s!even billionth can of Spam was sold. The thing to remember is that Spam was widely distributed.

Electronic spam is defined as the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited messages (spam), especially advertising, as well as sending messages repeatedly on the same site. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media. I find both forms of Spam disgusting, both for its taste and inconvenience to my daily computer work.

I remember well having to eat fried Spam when my parents were struggling financially in the 1950s. I have tried it since and I have the same gag reaction…

  2. Len loved Spam so I always have several cans in my hurricane kit. I have since given these, and everything I bought for him, to a friend that hasn’t had money coming in due to surgeries 😊

    Fortunately, my dad hated it from having so much of in in England in WWII. Therefore, we never had it at home. I only had it a few times at friends’ houses. Horrible stuff. I have friends from Hawaii and all of them love Spam. It’s a big deal in Hawaii. I heard they have Spam donuts in Hawaii. Aak! Aak! Aak! I hate electronic spam as much as canned Spam. But the one Spam thing I love is Monty Python’s Spam skit and song.
