And, seriously, who can keep a straight face while watching the classic Monty Python SPAM® skit? To the credit of the Hormel folks, even they have a sense of humor about their product. On their website, they say:
Over the years, the SPAM® Family of Products has made itself known around the world, winning over the hearts of soldiers, world leaders, chefs, kids and parents alike. In fact, Gracie Allen, Dwight Eisenhower, Margaret Thatcher and Monty Python all have sung praises of the SPAM® Brand.

But it's time to be honest. All the guffaws and choruses of "Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam" aside, somebody is really eating this stuff. A quick look at the availability of SPAM® products on amazon.com revealed that it is still alive and kicking and being produced in a multitude of forms. (There are so many, in fact, that scrolling through them, single file, is the visual equivalent of singing the Python song.)

And for the SPAM® lover on the go, there are even single serving packets. Don't worry...They come in Lite too.
So my question is this: Are you SPAM®-eaters out there willing to step up and admit that you have secretly been making Hormel richer? That you've been whipping up all the SPAM® recipes we've been posting? That you get up in the middle of the night and raid the refrigerator for a tasty snack of SPAM® leftovers? I promise you won't be ridiculed...much.
Hey, wait a minute. If this much SPAM® is still being sold, the joke just might be on us. What if SPAM® is really good, and those SPAM® hoarders out there are keeping it all for themselves? Maybe I'd better check out those recipes again.
