    Did you know...???

    Spam is a popular Monty Python sketch, first broadcast in 1970. In the sketch, two customers are trying to order a breakfast without SPAM from a menu which includes the processed meat product in every entree. The term spam (in electronic communication) is derived from this sketch.


    :tongue:

    That is interesting did not know that. Have sometimes wonder how all the new Internet names come about. Most of the are acronyms for something long and technical.
