Commemorate Pearl Harbor Day with Lousy Canned Spaghetti

Seventy-two years ago today, 2402 Americans were killed and another 1282 wounded in an Imperial Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Share in their sacrifice by eating some SpaghettiOs, one of the worst mass market food products on the planet.

    Why not Twinkies?
    After all, they have a shelf life of at least 72 years.

    @CSK: Oh, geez, that sounds disgusting. But to be honest, I’ve never eaten Spam. I assume it tastes like canned cat food smells, is that correct?

    It’s musubi, basically Japanese for a left overs sandwich and I wouldn’t call it a delicacy. I did survive a fair bit of my college on them though.

    Hawaii eats more SPAM than any other state, not per capita, total.
