    Happy Birthday SPAM! SPAM makes me think of that movie 50 First Dates, with Adam Sandler. I love that movie.

    Yeah, I've seen this movie like 4 or 5 times so far and every time I see this movie I wonder how it would feel like every new day you are a totally different person. Different in the sense, you don't remember who you are, who's your loved ones, you get surprised everyday that those are your children playing around. The idea of the movie is just fantastic. There are just a few movies that really moved me and 50 first dates is one of them, others are Back to the future, Sixth Sense and more

    Oh, Happy Birthday SPAM® Brand!

    (EDIT: Please disregard my previous comment on SPAM, I didn't know what were you talking about.)

    Basically. Just remember that all childhood memories aren't necessarily good.

    SPAM is one of those things that people either love or hate. I've never met someone who said, "I can take it or leave it." Either they can't stand it and would never eat it again, or they find it to be a very tasty ingredient.

    I love it.

    The ingredients of SPAM are as follows:

    chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added
    salt (for binding, flavor, and firmness)
    water (to help in mixing)
    sugar (for flavor)
    sodium Nitrite (for color and as a preservative)

    I've never had Spam, but those ingredients sound good to me.

    And here are some other interesting SPAM-related facts to consider:

    In the United States, 3.8 cans of SPAM are consumed every second.
    Hawaiians eat an average of four cans of SPAM per person per year (this is the highest SPAM consumption rate per capita in the world).

    Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia eats a SPAM and mayonnaise sandwich three times a week.

    Nikita Krushchev credited SPAM with the survival of the WWII Russian army. Quothe the Krushchev: "Without SPAM, we wouldn't have been able to feed our army."

    We lived in Hawaii & SPAM® was a way of life.
    It was on the menu @ local restaurants.
    Generally served as SPAM®, mayo & shoyu over rice.

    Spam is big in Japan, too. I didn't mind it so much cooked in soy sauce, scrambled eggs and rice (called Nitta), but an Okinawan housewife gave me a spam and mayo sandwich that was pretty hard to choke down. The spam slice was an inch thick and uncooked.

    All I can say is, I'm glad I'm vegetarian, after those descriptions of the product and its ingredients.

    I can't help but wonder if their sales have skyrocketed since the term SPAM has been coined online. I remember hearing a very successful marketer once say , "any press is good press." lol.

    If you ever visited a packing house I don't think you would eat weiners again. I think spam is made out of the same ingredients , LIPS and ....Holes.

    You forgot the allowable percentage of bug and rodent parts. Read the actual FDA Handbook.

    Btw, after reading that FDA Handbook, there is no need be on any diet anymore, because almost everything that I like to eat, is mentioned in there with extra flavor...
