Old English Manuscript?

Spam Observations #20

Kerry Webb wrote to me today with the following question:
"What is OEM software, and why should you care?"
Which is probably the easiest spam I've ever had to process mentally.

Let me put it to you in an interview format, like I was being interviewed by, let's say, Vanity Fair:

Kerry: What is OEM software?
Reverend Anaglyph: I have no idea.

Kerry: Why should you care?
Reverend Anaglyph: I don't.

Reverend Anaglyph: Do we get lunch?

I think the answer is "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a seasame seed bun."

Only Exciting Men. OR, Only Exciting Me, which is the Freudian slip that I was about to leave before I realized the "n" was missing.

BTW thanks a lot everybody. Now Google searches for "McDonalds" & "ejaculation" will all end up at The Cow.

Sorry Reverend, but what is a Cold Weather Landing Exercise? Is it a common exercise for cows?

Onions Extra Mayo is indeed feature-rich software, typically used as optional extensions to complement other products. Though like most software it can end up being shelfware.

Or even vaporware.

Pil, just google the term "Cowlex". I think the Reverend might have a trademark infringement case building.

2 weeks, 4 days before someone asked! Yippee.

jmf: I don't think the military can hold trademarks. Anyway, They don't want to tangle with The Cow's legal department. We all saw how that turned out for Dan Brown.

RaJ: So, like, if I go to the right place I can download this to my laptop? Sounds kinda messy...
