CLOSE ENCOUNTERS - OF THE "SPAM" KIND!


I have never liked Spam -- and by that I mean that distastefully salty MEAT-N-A-CAN, LOL...Side note, my parents cooked up Spam all the time when we were kids and temporarily living in the Middle East. They would have it shipped to Saudi Arabia and hence that was our "meat" to eat...I had everything from spam sandwiches, to spam & eggs, spam & hash, etc etc YUCK!!! It's maybe because I ate it so much as a youngster that I had grown to dislike it!!

Well, now I have grown to dislike another type of "spam."  Apparently "spammers" are clogging the self-publishing bookstores (such as Amazon) with copies of authors' work (basically not there own) to make a buck!
read about it at this link http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/16/us-amazon-kindle-spam-idUSTRE75F68620110616

Why is it when you hear the word "spam" it brings a negative connotation??  Ummm, well let's think about this...lets compare...

MEAT-N-A-CAN's  SPAM= Distasteful and Salty

SPAMMER's SPAM = Distasteful and Insulting

Yep, pretty similar. LOL. Sorry for all of you who love spam--the meat that is (can you really call meat-n-a-can MEAT??).

God Bless!

Thanks for the link. This is worse than a spammer. This is being a thief.
