AI and Lovely Spam!25-12-2022 09:36
Homo Ludens fed the core idea of Lovely Spam into the GPT AI system to give us yet another festive version of its story.
Spam was an elf who worked in Santa's workshop, creating toys for boys and girls all over the world. He loved his job, but sometimes he wished he could do more to spread holiday cheer.
One day, as the Christmas rush was in full swing, Spam had an idea. He decided to sneak out of the workshop and deliver presents to everyone in the village, not just the good boys and girls on Santa's nice list.
At first, Spam was thrilled to be spreading so much joy. But when he returned to the workshop, he found Santa waiting for him with a stern look on his face.
"Spam, what have you done?" Santa asked. "You know the rules. Only the good boys and girls get presents on Christmas."
Spam's heart sank. He had always wanted to make everyone happy, but he had never meant to break the rules.
"I'm sorry, Santa," Spam said. "I just wanted to spread some holiday cheer."
Santa sighed. "I understand, Spam, but you can't just give presents to everyone. It wouldn't be fair to the boys and girls who have been good all year. However, I do have a solution."
Santa transferred Spam to the "unwanted correspondence department," where he spent the rest of the holiday season sorting through piles of misdirected letters and packages. It wasn't the most glamorous job, but Spam was happy to have a second chance.
As he worked, Spam came up with a plan. He knew that Santa's workshop was always flooded with letters from children, and he also knew that many of them ended up in the "unwanted correspondence department" because they were addressed to the North Pole or had mistakes in the address.
Spam decided to use this to his advantage. He began secretly delivering presents to the children whose letters ended up in the department. At first, he was careful to only deliver to the good boys and girls, but soon he couldn't resist the urge to bring cheer to all the children.
When Santa found out, he was furious. But as he looked into Spam's pleading eyes, he realized that the elf had learned his lesson and was simply trying to spread joy in his own way.
Santa decided to let Spam off with a warning, and the elf returned to his job in the workshop with a new appreciation for the magic of Christmas and the importance of following the rules.
