Spamming Spammy Spammers

I’ve seen a couple stories now that are just ads for really stupid things that don’t belong on Ficly. Now, I don’t have time to police them or read every story that gets posted (that’s your job). So, I’m asking you to keep your eyes peeled for spam and report it to me, either with a note on Ficly (you can send me one from my author profile) or an e-mail (

I hate spammers and their spammy spam. If it gets worse, I’ll see what else we can do, but in the meantime, please just point it out to me and I will deal with it with extreme extremeness.

In other news, tomorrow, March 10th, is The International Day of Awesomeness, a holiday I invented a few years ago and may have mentioned before. I welcome all who wish to celebrate it with awesome awesomeness. The site has more details on the who, what and why of the silly holiday.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled schedules.

    Spam is not awesome. Not even in meat form. But tomorrow shall be. :)

  • Jae

    Haven’t seen any myself, but will be watching.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever had spam…

  • August Rode

    The only spam that I ever liked was in a Monty Python sketch. (

    By the way, Kevin, I’d like to compliment you on your use of redundant redundancies. ;-)

    Oh man, tomorrow is the International Day of Awesomeness?! I can’t believe I have once again failed to plan, thus planning to fail.

    Epic fail for THX. Epic fail of failness.

    Why am I the only one who likes spam? The food spam, not the internet-viagra-breast-diet-money-in-africa-spam. In Hawai’i spam and eggs is breakfast!

  • Jim Stitzel

    I love spam (the foodstuff). Fried up on toast with some cheese and mayo — feast of kings right there.

  • Scrawler's Secret

    Spam: Canned Ham. Grew up knowing it as a hillibilly redneck dish. Don’t put it on the stove in the can. It will get airborn.

  • BARomero

    With respect to Elsa, Spam is the official breakfast meat of Hawaii and the Philippines…

  • ElshaHawk (LoA)

    that’s fine for them, but not for me. I can’t stand it. My mom used to make it. I have tried it. I can’t even bear the thought of it now..

  • J. Rein B.

    @BARomero: well technically SPAM is a bit too expensive here in the Philippines, so we get by with cheap knockoffs. :D

    When I was a kid, I opened a can of Spam, the juicy stuff went all over my arm, kind of banished any thoughts I had about eating it.

    The other spam-
    Indifference. shrugs

    hate spam but love the international day of awesomeness

    I had spam, tomato ketchup and white bread for my wedding dinner.

    Sort of.

    I helped my new wife to the loo, just after we’d finished the starter. When I returned, my place setting had been replaced, and I got spam, bread and ketchup to eat. Also, my cutlery had been replaced with a geometry set.

    My awesome friends thus re-created a happy shared moment of spam-consumption from our university days where we had all the ingredients but realised that we had nothing with which to slice the spam, and nothing with which to spread the ketchup. Martin’s pencil case came to the rescue and happiness ensued.

    I made myself a spam sandwich and ate and enjoyed it muchly. It was soon replaced by my actual main course, which I enjoyed all the more for the spammy interlude.

  • ElshaHawk (LoA)

    @ethel despite my distaste for the stuff, that was an awesome spam story!

  • August Rode

    Not sure why I didn’t mention this earlier but there’s an archive of spam-related haiku at I highly recommend it.

  • Tina Murphy

    “When the moon is pink, I am full of emptiness, And miss you like Spam.”
    Thanks for the haiku link August Rode! Made my mom and I laugh!

  • Slightnmighty

    I can’t believe I missed the day of awesomeness. Weepy weep.

  • Lone Writer

    I forgot AGAIN! D:
