Interesting factoid learned while doing legal research today:
Use of the term ‘spam’ as Internet jargon for this seemingly ubiquitous junk e-mail arose out of a skit by the British comedy troupe Monty Python, in which a waitress can offer a patron no single menu item that does not include Spam . . . Hormel Food Corporation, which deputed its SPAM luncheon meat in 1937, has dropped any defensiveness about this use of the term and now celebrates its product with a website.
