So its come to this:

"Sales of Spam — that much maligned meat — are rising as consumers are turning more to lunch meats and other lower-cost foods to extend their already stretched food budgets.

What was once cheeky, silly and the subject of a musical (as Monty Python mocked the meat in a can), is now back on the table as people turn to the once-snubbed meat as costs rise, analysts say."

"Sales of Spam — that much maligned meat —"

It's an American classic.... The Pate of the masses.... Wow...!

If you haven't eaten Spam on toast points, you don't know what you've been missing.

It's numero uno in my book... My dog loves it too...

Sometimes you Americanos act like a bunch of mentecatos.... The genuine american culture is so incredibly rich and beautiful and so many of you are missing out on it.... What a shame...!

Spam is something to be proud of.

Best regards,
