The Classic Canned Meat

I often joke here and elsewhere about spam … of the interweb and email variety … so I’m not really surprised that there’s a vast amount of spam stuff (yeah, that’s the technical term) out there. And, I knew that Spam of the pink, canned and edible (though some would question that) variety was a topic of much humor. I had no idea — though I shouldn’t have been surprised — that there are hundreds of Spam limericks (Spamericks?) out there, and some of them are pretty darned good.

Take Mike O’Connor’s (K.M.O’Connor), for example.  This is just one of his, and one of many others, on http://mit.edu/jync/www/spam/limericks1.html. Who knew there was so much spam talent out there?

A finicky Finn from Helsinki
Complained that his skin wasn’t pinky,
So he went on the lamWith a large tin of SPAM.
Now he’s pink as a skink but quite stinky.
— Mike O’Connor’s (K.M.O’Connor)

And, of course, the ever irreverent Weird Al sums it all up so well.

About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
