Greetings friend! Now you can be Emperor of her bedroom, last long! Make money from home, important information enclosed!

31 years ago, on May 1st 1978, the first spam email was written by a man named Gary Thuerk. Sent out two days later to around 600 unwilling recipients, it advertised open houses on America's west coast for computer company Digital Equipment Corp. And so a phenomenon was born. Weight loss medications!

Now, spam makes up around 97% of all email traffic - and has become such a part of our lives, it's inspired many people to turn it into art.

I'm with Bubba - this is bitterly disappointing in terms of pork shoulder canned meats.
