The Origin Of Why Spam Is Called Spam
The term 'spam' (unsolicited or undesired bulk electronic messages) takes its name from this Monty Python sketch.
Etymology: The term spam is derived from the 1970 Spam sketch of the BBC television comedy series
Monty Python's Flying Circus.
The sketch, set in a cafe, has a waitress reading out a menu where every item includes Spam canned luncheon meat.
As the waitress recites the Spam-filled menu, a chorus of Viking patrons drowns out all conversations with a song,
repeating "Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam… Spammity Spam! Wonderful Spam!".
The excessive amount of Spam mentioned is a reference to the ubiquity of it and other imported canned meat products in the United Kingdom
after World War II, as the country struggled to rebuild its agricultural base.
