And Now for something completely different.

MILY FREDRIX , Associated Press May 28, 2008 MILWAUKEE -" Love it, hate it or laugh at it — at least it's inexpensive. Sales of Spam — that much maligned meat — are rising as consumers are turning more to lunch meats and other lower-cost foods to extend their already stretched food budgets".

I couldn't help but think that this article is pure politically motivated BS. Has Mily ever shopped for groceries? Spam (which I have never bought, but I might now for nostalgia) costs about 3.50 - 4 dollars a pound. It is sold in 12oz tins. Is 4 dollars a pound an inexpensive meat? For Mily's it is. I'll bet shes never even tasted it. Personal experience has taught me that other cuts of meat are less expensive.... and can stretch your budget, - if food is a place you look to stretch your family budget.
The truth is; Hormel has mounted an extensive marketing campaign for this popular product, and other new Spam products:

Original SPAM® Classic
SPAM® Lite
SPAM® Less Sodium
SPAM® Hot & Spicy
SPAM® Hickory Smoke Flavored
SPAM® Oven Roasted Turkey
SPAM® with Bacon
SPAM® with Cheese
SPAM® with Honey
SPAM® Single Classic
SPAM® Single Lite
SPAM® Spread
Also the well known and advertised Spam Recipe Contest has been widely covered. There are Spam festivals for pork's sake!

Mily is just a media drone...
And remember - backwards it spells "maps"

Felix: The only reason SPAM persists is that people still go camping. Its sole redeeming quality is not SPAM's edibility, it is its durability. SPAM is the indestructible foodstuff.
Back in Boy Scouts, they used to say "SPAM" is an abbreviation for the meats it's made of: Shoulder, Penis, Anus, and Muscle.
Now doesn't that sound like some good eatin'?
