I like SPAM. No, not the junk stuff you get through your email, but the canned stuff you eat.
I am sure that most, if not all, of you have eaten it as have many through out the world. Now, I just wonder how much you know about it? Well, of course I am going to tell you all about it. How do I know? Why of course, I found a book at the flea market this weekend that has all kinds of uses for stuff other than what it was designed or made for. The book is:
The most amazing thing is just how many cans of SPAM have been sold. Way back on March 22, 1994, Hormel Foods celebrated the production of its five billionth can of SPAM. Laid end to end, that many cans would circle the Earth twelve and a half times. Wow!!
Spam can be prepared many, many ways but it has uses other than food. For example, SPAM can be used as a furniture polish, to steam-proof bathroom mirrors, and it makes a great fish bait. It has been around for quite a long time. It was invented in 1937. I am not sure just how it got its name but some think it was a contraction of the two words, spiced ham. I love SPAM but because I take medication for elevated blood pressure, my wife says I shouldn't eat it. Well, at least I hope you all had a good breakfast of SPAM and eggs and toast and butter with jam and. . . oh you know, have a good day today, you hear?
