By: Blanche Nonken To: All Spamites Re: Somethings Are Forever Howdy All, Some things really last forever. When I tell you this story, you are going to say I am crazy, but we already know that. Last Saturday I went to the used bread store. The manager of the place was having a garage sale. Seems his parents are both gone and he was getting rid of their household furnishings. Things were dirt cheap, but I only bought one item. That item was a can of Spam. Big deal you say. Well, it was because I only paid a dime for it. This is old Spam, it is the type you need a key to open the can with. I called Hormel on Monday and read the stuff on the can to them. This can was packed in 1951! The can was not bloated or rusty and apparently still vacuum sealed. Opening the can, I found the Spam still had color, smelled ok and looked ok. Not being a dummy, I realize that there could still be something that would make me sick. So I took a slab into the lab and we tested it. All tests were negative and we ran them 3 times. So I ate the rest of it. Only regret I have, is that when I came home I had a message on the machine from Hormel. I called them back and they wanted to buy my can of Spam. They offered me $10.00 for it. They were sorry to hear I ate it. They wouldn't give me anything for the can.
