Now that we have finished with business let’s talk about spam, a well-known word with two wildly different meanings.
Spam, in its modern iteration, refers to barrages of unsolicited computer messages that muck up mailboxes and slow the flow of online information. Spam is also a canned, pre-cooked meat product that servicemen, especially sailors, ate during World War II.
