Gmail & Spam

In my quest for the email address that I’ll keep for the next millennium, I have acquired no less than 8 email accounts. That’s right, count them all. There’s no way that I need that many, so I’m going to start letting some of them go. A couple of them are through Gmail, and I have some invites that I can give out. I’ve offered them to my friends, and I still have extras. Fifty-five of them, to be exact. And maybe more soon.

So, I have some Gmail invitations up for grabs. These things are selling on eBay, I’m willing to give them out for free. If you’re interested, email me and let me know. First come, first served.

When I put last night’s entry together, I linked to Spam. I’ve been thinking about their page since, and its cracking me up. You have to check this out. They’re marketing campaign is “Spam is Crazy Tasty!™”

Now, I realize that Spam has been getting a bum wrap for years. Anytime Monty Python mocks your product, it can’t help. And in addition to that, Congress passed an anti-spam law last year. So you know that Hormel’s marketing folks are fighting an uphill battle.

Even with all of that in mind, and regardless of whether or not Spam really is crazy tasty, this is hilarious. When was the last time you said, “hmmm, I think I want something that’s crazy tasty for dinner”? I don’t care who you are, that’s just funny.
