Some people like the product. You can't say it's just wrong. All you can say is it's not right for you.

Spam is the pink slime of the pork world.

I wouldn't say it was that innocent. On the other hand, it's probably no worse than just about any store bought, processed meat, like salamis. It's also very salty.

Meat & gelatin just don't go together for me. Personally I cannot get the image of the feeling of eating an eyeball.

Nor ears, hooves, noses, nards or other waste products give me any attraction to eating Spam.

It's a product totally built on pork's "pink slime." Everything you wouldn't eat goes into it. Tails anybody?
