[11:33:13] <Servus> strange duck

[15:33:48] <wjp> hi
[15:33:57] <Colourless> hi
[15:33:57] <wjp> Colourless: could you enlighten me wrt Spam Spam Spam Humbug? :-)
[15:34:13] <Colourless> honestly, i can't. All i know is that it's from 'somewhere' else
[15:34:29] <wjp> google and everything2 didn't reveal much :/
[15:34:40] <Colourless> i am very much guessing the Abe Lincoln stuff might be a bit of a hint
[15:35:04] <wjp> I added lincoln as a search term too, but that mostly showed that unreal easter egg :-)
[15:35:26] <Colourless> search for lincoln and humbug
[15:36:01] <wjp> ok, apparently he used the word at times
[15:36:36] <Colourless> now.. where did the spam spam spam come from, i'm not entirely sure
[15:36:56] <wjp> it mostly appears in connection to slavery, it seems
[15:37:08] <wjp> can't think of any connection between spam and slavery, though
[15:37:22] <Colourless> hmm
[15:37:39] <Colourless> humbug pretty much refers to disgust
[15:37:57] <Colourless> all I can think of is spam spam spam humbug, was a 'joke' refereing to the 'real' spam
[15:38:11] <wjp> there was also an X-files ep. called humbug, it seems :-)
[15:38:41] <wjp> humbug: 1) An imposition under fair pretenses; something contrived in order to deceive and mislead; a trick by cajolery; a hoax. 2) A spirit of deception; cajolery; trickishness. 3) One who deceives or misleads; a deceitful or trickish fellow; an impostor.
[15:39:02] <Colourless> heh, seems i'm wrong :-)
[15:39:04] <wjp> or as a verb: To deceive; to impose; to cajole; to hoax.
