Fight Divers envolvendo os Monty Python

The original spam (a contraction of spiced ham) is made by Hormel Corporation, which sent enough cans of it overseas during the Second World War to feed every G.I. In a celebrated 1970 Monty Python skit, a diner tris repeatedly and in vain to order a dish, any dish, without spam. She is drowned by a group of Vikings in horned helmets, who chant the word dozens of times - "Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam!" - eliminating any possibility of rational thought. The word was rapidly adopted by computer programmers as a verb meaning to flood a chat room or a bulletin board with so much data that it crashes.
