Every page of this book is hilarious! I was also pleasantly surprised by the fun and witty historical account of Spam and canned foods in general. Very funny stuff.
Your friends will dig it at your next cocktail party. mmmm...Spam.

Need a fun eye candy with meat book to alleviate the boredom while waiting for your plane to take off, land or show up? This would be your answer...lots of info with brilliant color, facts and fun! Small enough to pack into a carry-on, have in your bath or anywhere you might like to enjoy short bursts of spamtastic data! Great stocking stuffer! Who knew????

I enjoyed the book and appreciated the tongue in cheek humor. Bad pun I know. It gets spam out into the public eye and hopefully onto the dinner plate. I'm originally from Austin, Mn. the home of Hormel, rhymes with normal, and as a kid I didn't like spam. When I started working on a farm I was served fried spam and loved it. Have eaten it ever since. Even liked the food in the army. So spamlike. The book brings the joy of spam into the light of day. Spammites unite. Fun book that kids will love.
