What is the German word for spam? I was hoping it would be something awesome like, Schmerzlichmail. However, it’s simply “Spam.”
But the article makes it fun… in the German languages there are three different ways of saying “the”: der, die, das. The article for spam is “die”, thus it is: Die Spam.
I’d like to see someone with a German accent yell out, “Die Spam!!!”
In this screenshot of Google Translate, you’ll see Lao is one of the language options.
What is Lao? Google’s auto-definition from omniglot.com says:
Lao is a Tai-Kadai language spoken by approximately 15 million people in Laos and Thailand. It is closely related to Thai and speakers of Lao are able to understand spoken Thai without too many difficulties.
Translate spam into Lao, and you get:
That is so darned cute! It makes spam seem friendly! Literally translated ຂີ້ເຫຍື້ອ means garbage. Appropriate enough.
In Catalan, spam is: el correu no desitjat. That’s a long phrase to say!
