So, I have a dumb question. What is SPAM? Really? And I don't mean the most popular "meat" product consumed by Hawaiians or the #1 canned food item The Husband has stock-piled in his doomsday bunker because it literally takes 20 years before it will spoil. No, I'm talking about the SPAM comments I receive over here, at the Bird's Nest. Are the SPAM comments I receive from time to time on my blog from real people or just computer generated? Because I've gotten some pretty funny comments lately...and one, we'll it was just plain mean.
I know I can't be the only one who's received a negative comment on their blogs at one point or another. But man, it's really hard for me to accept that "real" people are sitting safely behind their computers anonymously heckling my heart; because that's what I pour out into my writing.
In honor of all the lovely comments I have received lately, who'd like to pop open a big ole can-of-SPAM with Jaybird today? What are the funniest/worst/best Spam comments you've received? Do you ever respond to them? What do you say to something like this- (FYI it appeared on my blog exactly as I have repeated it here)

We had to eat whatever was available, inexpensive and could stick to your ribs. Somehow, my mom always found a way to make "something from nothing". I know the ingredients and that introduction make this recipe sound a bit sketch, but it's quite yummy. And even though we can afford to eat a bit better now, every once and a while, I still love to make some of the more creative recipes my mom came up with to feed us, all those years ago.
List of Ingredients:
