The Ballad of Jed Spampett
Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor white trash, kinda crazy in the head
Then one day as he was shootin, at some food
Up from the ground came those cans of blue
Spam that is
Pink and sweet
Well the next thing you know, he could feed the whole clan
When out of the woods popped a Hormel man
He said Spamabama is the place you oughta' be
So they loaded up the truck but only got to Antrey
Hill folks that is
Make you squeal!!!
Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his clan
And they would like to thank you folks for chockin'down that Spam
Your all invited back 'ere morn to this localaty
To take a shot and see if ya got a case of dispepsy
Gas pain that is!!!
Moan and groan
Get the Rolaids !! Ya hear?!
From 1939 SPAM, the canned pork meat, became ubiquitous both in the UK. A although rationed, it was generally easily available and not subject to supply shortages, as were other meats
Margaret Thatcher had fond memories of SPAM and actually referred to it once as a “wartime delicacy”
Nikita Khrushchev went much further and actually said: “without SPAM we wouldn't have been able to feed our army”
Some soldiers referred to Spam as "ham that didn't pass its physical" and "meatloaf without basic training."
Those rumors of President-Obama being a Muslim have been laid to rest by his very visible consumption of a porky pan-Asian fusion delicacy--well that's what fancy food folks will be calling Spam musubi now that Obama noshed on one while playing golf, making the Hawaiian snack chic.
Old man seeks doctor.
"I eat SPAM daily", he says.
