Comes in a can with a key opener - my husband always buys the crap and
then says woof woof everytime he eats some. Glad it's coming out of his
wallet and not mine.

Spam: Self Promotional Advertising Message

There is some debate about the source of the term, but
the generally accepted version is that it comes from the
Monty Python song, "Spam spam spam spam, spam spam spam
spam, lovely spam, wonderful spam"

Like the song, spam is an endless repetition of worthless
text.

Another school of thought maintains that it comes from the
computer group lab at the University of Southern California
who gave it the name because it has many of the same
characteristics as the lunchmeat Spam:

Nobody wants it or ever asks for it.
No one ever eats it; it is the first item to be pushed to the side when
eating the entree.
Sometimes it is actually tasty, like 1% of junk mail that is really useful
to some people.

Here are a few general references on spam.
