If you see me, you see the product of Ranch Style Beans, Wolf Brand Chili, Vienna Sausages and ……..SPAM.  I’ve taken many a fried SPAM sandwich to school in my lunch box (or paper spam_classic-455sack).  Many will disagree, but I like SPAM.  I never get it any more, but I wouldn’t mind a sampling once in a while.

3.8 cans of SPAM are consumed every second in the United States, totaling nearly 122 million cans annually, so I’m not alone.  The acronym – SPAM – is credited to several sources.  It may be that the name is an abbreviation of “spiced ham”, “spare meat”, or “shoulders of pork and ham”. Another popular explanation is that Spam is an acronym standing for “Specially Processed American Meat” or “Specially Processed Army Meat”.

No matter what, it disturbs me that SPAM has gotten such a bad reputation.  Internet Spam is the bane of my existence.  According to Wikipedia, we can blame Monty Python for the bad fried-spam-meat-19214314rep.  They apparently never tried it.  Email Spam (apparently, Russian women think I’m hot), text Spam, Facebook Spam, it’s all a pain.  The worst for me is the Spam I get on my webpage.

Every day I get 30 to 40 comments that are clearly Spam.  As of today, I have about 20 legitimate comments from friends and readers.  I have over 3,000 Spam comments.  Some people have too much spare time or are just nefarious.  Most are from other lands (i.e. China, India, Russia).  I think there must be some software that converts those languages into English.  If it weren’t such a nuisance, I’d think it was funny.  It’s obvious to me that none of them have read a word of what I have written.  Here are some examples:

I wish to get across my passion for your kind-heartedness supporting women who absolutely need guidance on this one situation.
