No, I am not talking about junk e-mail that we inevitably get each day to win a "free" i-pod, but the mysterious meat made from ___________. While I was on retreat with the Carmelites in Austin, MN the inevitable happened, spam was on the menu. There is a Hormel factory located in Austin and you can see it from the interstate. Growing up I never had the 'opportunity' to eat this curious creation. Last Thursday I had my first spam sandwich and it was really not that bad. It did not have much taste and it did not bother me too terribly much. I am not saying I will go out and buy several cases of it for my own enjoyment, but I think I'll stick with something that I can identify as being an animal product.
