Ishtar?

These kinds of email messages—the ones you want to keep but just don't want to open right now—were dubbed bacn over the weekend. And the term is beginning to spread.

The fact that superblog Boing Boing mentioned the word's coinage probably doesn't hurt the effort to add this term to the lexicon of email—right alongside spam. Hmm, what email annoyance can we affix sizzlean to?

Yeah, I know, that was only marginally food-related, but when it involves bacon—even in the slightest—it's news with a capital B here. How 'bout this: In real bacon news, this guy went and made his own—he shows you how.
