What The Heck!

Spam Anyone?

Sitting on my desk is a can of Spam that someone left in the NPR kitchen for the taking. Most of it is inscribed in Japanese, I believe, with a couple of smiling geishas pointing to the "25% Less Sodium" information bar. On the back are photos of some of the wonderful sushi creations one can make with the product.

Mmm...Delicious Spam

The can is a result of a Morning Edition story on Spam Sushi that ran last 4th of July, detailing Hawaii's creativity with the contents.

A little more background comes from my alert colleague Anne Ledford who discovered this article not long ago and shared it with me: Live in Hawaii? Chances are you've got Spam
