Ate three cans of SPAM,
But theres still room for Jell-O.
I love this country.
And we love John Chos collection of Spam-ku (Spam-related haiku). Cho, a researcher at MIT and the Spam Haiku Archive Master, or S.H.A.M., has been selflessly preserving Spam-ku for future generations since 1995. Three years later, his compilation numbers 162. And we didnt even know that many people actually eat cubed pig in a tin. We recommend this fleshy compilation to anyone who likes these pink loaves, sings about Spam with Monty Python or simply relishes the taste of some finger-lickin good poetry. Vegetarians beware.
