As a kid I loved Spam, once pilfering a can from the cupboard and slipping it
under my pillow so I’d have fatty, delicious, porkish dreams. As an adult,
I hate the stuff -- at least the kind with the lowercase "s."
Hormel, makers of the uppercase form of Spam, is also irritated by unwanted
e-mail. In fact, it tried to prevent antispam vendors from disparaging
the name "Spam." The only problem, according to a European court,
is that no one seems to realize that Spam can actually refer to a high-calorie
processed canned meat-style foodstuff.
