Illegal aliens have always been a problem in the United States. Ask any Native American.

Re: A little SPAM trivia

Since you're the only one that guessed it comes from the Monty Python sketch where they endlessly say "spam" over and over and over and over and over...sort of like our new registrations. tongue

I'm a former M.W.D. handler and had to work with acronyms years ago but I'm probably out a limb with this answer -- no, I didn't google this either.

Sliced Processed Ham = SPHAM - H = SPAM (?) roll

How pathetic am I? I watched a tv show about the history of SPAM about a month ago, the meat.

It's actually not an acronym but a combination of the words spiced and ham.

What is a M.W.D. ?

Pathetic, you; I don't believe so. While some tv shows may be pathetic; educational trivia is fun stuff.

Well, I was close but no cigar.

M.W.D. refers to a Military Working Dog (K-9). I worked with my four-legged partners in off-base housing & in Weapon Storage Areas (WSAs). During my time in the service, working with the dogs was very rewarding & educational too.

That is pretty cool. I'm a huge dog lover. smile
