I believe at this juncture we have proved that you can never stop spam.

It's KB's fault. He should know better than to mention porn.

Spam spelled backward is MAPS.

When you go to Google Maps and google SPAM you get

Classic review. "I love SPAM and don't care what its made of as long as its edible."

Some people fear the addition of pink slime to their hamburgers. Other people eat it out of the can with relish.

The biggest problem is in the name. They should've called it "odds 'n' ends" or "pink fluff" or something. Pink slime doesn't make my mouth water.

Sweet, dill, mustard, or some other Portland-ish variant? NPR has the annual cranberry relish recipe, have you tried that with your Spam?

In Portland, it would all have to be handmade, whatever it was. I was at a pub the other night and they had up on the chalkboard, "Handmade slim-jims", which should be fairly close to "Handmade pink slime", though with mechanically separated chicken gristle instead of beef. The relish would have to be locally made by artisans, and definitely organic. Oh, and the "meat" would have to have at some point in its life been "free range" and "grain fed". Not that it should matter that much when it comes to eating blended rectum, tendon, skin and cartilage.

I like that. When I die I want my headstone to read, "Handmade, free range, and grain fed."
