Name idea: Spam, Egg, Chips

LETTER

Re: Rare chance to consider possibilities, February 7 letter.

I took Mr Williams’ advice and reflected on what and who I am, where I came from and how I got here. After much soul searching and think-tanking, I’ve come up with the obvious new name for Gisborne, Poverty Bay.

It’s non-sexist, non-racist and non-offensive (perhaps the vegan’s amongst us might not agree with the last point). I am a human being, I came from the sexual union of mum and dad and I got here by eating (would be dead if I hadn’t). Spam, Egg and Chips (previously Gisborne, Poverty Bay). Really nice ring to it, wouldn’t you say? Quite different and pretty unforgettable to boot.

I changed sperm to Spam — that will give us a great opportunity to twin with the maker’s of Spam and trouser some serious sponsorship money. The whole world has heard of Spam as well, which is about 8 billion more folk than have heard of Turanganui a Kiwa etc.

I am sorry I am a bit lost there after "non-offensive". I was nodding my head and then my mouth opened but not for spam or sperm.

Oh, reading the letters section is so comedic! Top marks to The Gisborne Herald for allowing such a diverse range of opinions.
