Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Bacn, Spam, and Red Meat

This is the newest internet buzz word. Most of you are familiar with email spam, which is junk email that comes in from only God knows where and is meant to lure you to click on links or download Trojans or viruses.

Bacn is a different story, as mentioned by Wikipedia.

(pronounced bacon) is the term given to electronic messages which have been subscribed to and are therefore not unsolicited but are often unread by the recipient for a long period of time. Bacn is email you want but not right now.

Basically it is newsletters and such that you have subscribed to. And you all know what the other Bacon is? Don’t you?

Spam, to all you unfamiliar with food related meaning of the term is:

Spam luncheon meat is a canned precooked meat product made by the Hormel Foods Corporation. The labeled ingredients in the Classic variety of Spam are: chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added, salt, water, sugar, and sodium nitrite. The product has become part of many jokes and urban legends about mystery meat, which has made it part of pop culture and folklore.

It looks like email is being categorized as meat. Here is what you can expect in the future:

Sirloin, the email coming in from your best friends.
Tenderloin, email from your significant other.
Ribs, is email from your family.

BBQ. Anyone?

    At my husband’s office, there are several catagories of e-mail, like you’re supposed to check “routine” or “priority” or whatever. And of course, at the beginning that works, but in a very short time, all your e-mails become priority. And they have blocked blogs, u-tube, a lot of the stuff office people waste time on.

    It sounds a bit forced, like something you do not really need a new term for.

  15. N. |

    It sort of does. You know buzz words, this is how they are born.
