Spamtastic Day

I must admit I do like a bit of kitsch now and again and at one time owned a collection of snow domes, which I have a bit of a penchant for. I inadvertently stumbled across this one which made me smile. When I first saw it I thought it was a joke but it seems like its a real item that you can actually buy here. Its what I think of as a classic snowdome in terms of shape and format. Looking through the rest of the website which is strangely captivating, it seems that spam consumption is alive and well. It has a fan club as well as a museum. You can even listen to a charming country and western ditty called "Pam don't take my Spam" So, if you're ever at a loose end in Austin, Minnesota you'll know where to go. Personally, I can't believe people still eat it and I certainly haven't touched it since the dreaded spam fritters (yes - deep fried spam in batter) were force fed to me at school . Just as well Jamie Oliver didn't exist then.
