Ewww- no that sounds pretty nasty to me. But then, I am not big on bacon nor "processed meat products".

Why is that, do you think? The price of fresh meat there, maybe? I could never eat it. It doesn't even look like food to me!!

AHA! This explains why they kept serving spam and eggs at the little restaurant on the islands that Adam Sandler met Drew Barrymore at in "50 First Dates".

Spam is popular in the Philippines, as well.

Also - we attended a traditional Chinese wedding in Chinatown (SF) a few years ago - one of the appetizers was made of Spam. And jellyfish. Ew.

I think it probably started back around WWII - our GI's ate it, cases were shipped around the world during and after the war to feed the hungry nations, etc.

(Actually, I've eaten quite a bit of it myself, back when I was a kid - one of my dad's favorite lunches was SLT - fried Spam, lettuce and tomato sandwiches!)

for those who just can't get enough SPAM trivia, here's a history link from the Hormel website:

I like SPAM because when we went on vacations as a child, we always had SPAM sandwiches. It brings back happy memories

OK.... I know Spam is terrible for a person, but as a kid my mother made something called "South Sea Island Supper". It was Spam in a pineapple/peapod sauce served over rice. It really was good!
I made it for my family once....just once...they wouldn't even touch it! ;-)

I remember seeing a special on the Food network about a Spam festival in Austin, Texas - I hate the stuff, but the recipes were intriguing. Also, there are tonnes of Spam haikus on the net, which spawned a book, which I found on Amazon, called Spam-ku.

If nothing else, it is a big part of our culture - afterall, look at the musical Spamalot.

All hail Monty Python!

Ah yes, that was a staple of school dinners at my primary school (and possibly secondary school too). I haven't seen one in the wild since about ... say, 1968?

Are they in captivity? When did you last see one, 2F?
