Spammed-A-Lot!

15 Nov

SPAM – or spiced ham – was first introduced in 1937 by the Hormel Foods Corporation. A canned precooked meat product made from chopped pork shoulder, salt, water, and modified potato starch and covered in a gelatinous glaze served in households throughout the world .

Spam became a pop culture icon, an American institution and theme of many jokes about “mystery meat”. Monty Python’s famous sketch*, about a customer who is irritated by a cafe which features SPAM as a key ingredient in every dish on its menu, gave rise to the canned meat’s name being given to unsolicited bulk messaging, sent through email, blog comments, and instant messaging, etc.

WordPress.com has a built in “spam-catcher” — it funnels all spam comments into a special folder where one can review the message and determine whether it is truly spam or a genuine comment. Most of the spam is nonsensical with links that lead back to a spammer’s commercial site, but some of them are actually quite hilarious  – in a slightly bizarre, ungrammatical way!

Below are some of the comments**  that landed in the spam filters of this blog and the blogs of friends.
