Origins of Spam

The word “spam,” meaning an unwanted message received via e-mail, originated from a Monty Python sketch in which several characters arrive at a restaurant only told be told that everything on the menu contains spam. The diners ask the waiter if any item on the menu doesn’t contain spam, but they realize that’s not going to happen. All they want is something of substance, not processed meat.
