Excerpt from "From Pork Bellies to SPAM"

Tim Ouellette

For sheer fun, though, I visit the Spam Haiku Archive (http://www.naic.edu/~jcho/spam). Brought to my attention by a fellow worker, this site shines through as an example of the complete quirkiness accessible on the Web. Mixing the ancient Japanese poetry form of Haiku with the modern day creation (some say abomination) of Spam has spawned thousands of strange and unbelievable poems.
