Have you ever heard of Prem? Me, neither. At first, I thought it was a new product trying to compete with SPAM. Turns out it’s been around for years. Funny thing is, I bet the makers of Prem rather wish their canned meat had SPAM’s notoriety.
Meanwhile, SPAM – with a little help from Monty Python – has become synonymous with unsolicited email. Hormel, the makers of SPAM, have reconciled with their product’s unfortunate association. If nothing else, it keeps SPAM in the public eye. Hormel only asks that people use lowercase letters when talking about junk email, and all caps when talking about their canned ham. Finally, a legitimate use for all caps. Seems fair enough to me.
If I were on Prem’s advertising staff, I’d suggest a jokey counter-spam ad, in which their canned meat is slang for something good. The ad might have someone in a staff meeting exclaim, “Our third quarter sales figures are totally prem!” or something like that. Of course, if I were getting paid to boost Prem’s sales, I’d come up with something better!
I emptied my blogs’ spam folder today. Amazing how much stuff accumulates and how oddly it is written. Some of it makes sense, or at least it’s obvious what they are selling because of what the spam links to. Others are just bizarre, such as this one:
When the progenitors is on its has a caboodle of introduce to be done. Cardinal of all repair issues affecting this family. Once you can enter a hospice or apartment, we for to rehabilitate the demeanour, if it was times utilized nearby someone else. You force neediness to start a foremost refurbishment. Enclosure stain does not for experts. Not each knows how much fun brings a common painting the walls. It is advantage to lessen your child pick out the most optimal color. Of course, if it is an irritant, resplendent or somber color such as dusky, degree persuaded to set into negotiations with these children and win over them to change their colors to more subdued. Ordinarily repairs also relates to changes in flooring, but in this cover, children are remote to be needed. They can absorb such support works, like cleaning after repairs, cleaning dumfound, zachlapanych of paint, etc. The work of inbred offspring made firm bind people together are needed, because they sire the appearance of the dwelling.
Thank you fior youe attention
Um, OK… I have no idea what a “zachlapanych of paint” is, do you? This piece of spam gets points for its creative use of English, if nothing else. Anyway, my timer is dinging, so I guess it’s time to go make the NaBloPomo blog roll rounds and see what other folks are up to. After that, I think I’ll go eat some Prem. I hear it makes a good sandwich on New York Original Texas Toast.
