Several weeks ago one of the threads discussed Spam. I knew what it was and had read about it being part of the diet for the military in WWII, but I had never tasted it. So, when I saw a small can on the s/market shelf, here in OZ, I grabbed it.
It's made by Hormel Foods, Austin. MN. All I can say is, that if you fed this stuff to animals you'd be cited for cruelty.
Forget about weapons of distruction, if they had of dropped this stuff on the enemy in WWII they would have surrended en masse. Hit Afghanistan with it and Bin Laden will break his neck to give up.
I reckon it's 'tinned salt', let it dry, gring it up , and whack it in the salt shaker.
One of the ingredients, listed on the label, is 'mechanically separated chicken'. Now I'm having trouble getting my mind around that. Do they have a robot pull the chooks apart? Are they on a rack and stretched until they tear apart?
Mechanically separated, what a great phrase. I'm going to whack it in my will. Among the other things in there to put a smile on my Son's faces when I depart, I can just see Ryder reading the will - shit, dad wants to be mechanically separated. Followed by Slade - okay, lets get the fucking Caterpiller out.
