Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam

News is out today that Hormel Corporation profits are up about 14% over prior year. Their executives are attributing that to an economy that is driving people to buy more... Spam.

Now I don't know about you, but I hate this stuff. I hate the texture of it, the smell, the taste, even the concept of it. Bits and pieces of pork, smashed into a small can held together by some kind of gelatin.

I don't even want to think about what pieces of the pig they put in there. Or for that matter, the turkey Spam. Or the hickory Spam. Or the bacon Spam. Or the hot and spicy Spam. Or the dog Spam. Okay that one is a little over the line, but all the others are genuine. You can check it out here.

My wife loves this stuff. Fried. I guess she grew up eating it. My son loves it too. So we have had to come to a sort of uneasy truce. No Spam when I am around the house. And since I travel and am out of the house often, the deal works.

But I will say there is something Spamish about which I will be eternally grateful. The clip below. It is the classic Monty Python Spam Sketch. Enjoy.

If you've ever used Gmail, they list spam recipes up at the top while you go about the business of deleting.... spam.

Ironic isn't it?

I can only eat SPAM one way: musubi.

Ever tried it?

Is Spam really that much cheaper than other meat? I doubt it.

It may not be anymore, but I know it once was. And, being canned, it was easy to stock and store.
