Oh, I like that one much better.

This has probably come up before, but whence "spam?"

I have heard two different versions:

(1)  The original spam was actually sent out by Spam.  (I find this story
        it doesn't seem that a meat-packing company or even a reseller
        canned meat would be an early entrant into e-commerce.)

(2)  Spam stands for "s-something p-something advertising message."  OK,
but what are s & p ?
