Oh please, like that's a battle cry for SPAM!

They'd be far better off if we fed them with about 500 other actually nutritious and good foods that we have an excess of.

I'm sure, if they had the chance, they'd want to eat something far nicer than Spam.

Not exactly a compelling argument to say "Well, a starving person, desperate enough to to eat about anything in his situation, would eat it."
Further shows why it came into being in the first place. Out of a dire situation.

I just compare it to good old Danish hot dogs. Sorry, but Americans lose here big time. What people here call a hot dog is a fatty sausage in a dry roll with a little ketchup.


The things they sell in Germany is as poor.

It seems you're keen to be some kind of Grizzly Adams, but the flaws in your views are just endless. You refuse to wear deodorant, but eat SPAM and hot dog meat? You won't pay for a steak but killed a bear for food? You're an amusing bunch of contradictions.

Nice site, by the way. Very humourous. The above disclaimer was especially chucklish.

-I take a bath every morning. I use a good soap and have never spent money on deodorant.

-I live in a rural area. We try to grow and raise as much of our food suppy as
we can.

-I do not eat Spam everyday or hotdogs.

-The last time Spam was on our menu was six months ago.

-The last hotdog was two months ago.

-I'm taking red lentil soup for lunch tomorrow.

-Moderation in all things

-During the Summer months, we rarely eat meat.

-Many members of my wife's family are vegertarians.

-It would be a good thing if all people who eat meat had to kill one animal.

-It would help them understand a lot about life.


I think i will stop here and wait.

The government is making money off of OOC now? I had no idea the superthreads were so lucrative.

Oh dear. It's a cheap version of Spam. How embarrassing.

Haha.
My first job was at a grocery store. We used to sell Treet. Never tried it.
Although a guy gave me a dollar to eat raw squid once.
So it's not like I have high standards (well, certainly not at that time anyways)

You ever heard of Souse?
That makes Spam look like filet mignon.

I have! But Souse is the fancy-schmantzy name for it -- in my area it was just called Head Cheese. Doesn't that sound yummy? When I was a kid the mere thought anyone would actually consume the Head Cheese and Blood sausage the tiny (seriously tiny -- it was only about 12'x18') grocery store just up the road from us stocked completely grossed me out.

I was brought up with Devon and tomato sauce sandwiches, looking back they were dire.

Having live on the Gulf Coast all my life with hurricanes that have disrupted power and gas for days to weeks at a time, Spam was not our enemy.
That's the only time I ate (grilled) Spam.
But if food prices don't fall soon, well who knows??
