Wrong Kind of Spam

So I'm quickly checking my Gmail, and I open my spam folder to empty it out, when I notice something odd about the google news ticker thing. Now for those of you that don't know, Google searches for keywords when using adsense to display relevant ads to the user. For example, if you search google for "candy" the ads will probably be for various types of candy. But adsense is in other places besides google, such as gmail. Adsense searches through your email for keywords to display relevant ads. And now I see Google News must do the same thing, because these are the headlines that showed up: Spam Imperial Tortilla Sandwiches - To serve, cut each roll in half Vineyard Spam Salad - Combine grapes, spam, peapods and onions in large bowl Savory Spam Crescents - Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown Spam Fajitas - Serves 8, add extra salsa if desired Spam Breakfast Burritos - Bake 5-10 minutes, serve with salsa Spam Swiss Pie - Bake 45-55 minutes or until eggs are set Spam Skillet Casserole - Broil until golden Spam Quiche - Makes 4 servings Amusing, to say the least.
