So what does "spiral-sliced" really mean??

I got a Harrington's ham for this christmas (I won't get banned for buying a pre-smoked ham, will I?) and tried one of the "spiral-sliced" offerings.  Cut it into four chunks and froze the other three, heated up the other for dinner today.  
Well, I thought "spiral-sliced" meant it was cut about halfway through, then rotated in a screw-direction manner, making serving (and later sammich-making) easier.  But this ham is what I'd call "spiral-scored", it has shallow cuts all around it, only about 1/2" deep; I'm guessing its to allow a glaze to go into the ham (I cooked mine naked).  No biggie, especially since I just got a meat slicer.
But, now I "googlez-Image'd" spiral-sliced hams, and they all look like this:
WTH??  What am I missing here?  
Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    I have went to spiral cut "pre-cooked" hams for all my Naked cooks. Bet you just got a mis-cut one. It will cook fine.
