I just saw a 15 second commercial for Spam

I just saw a 15 second commercial for Spam.
Image
I suppose that's all they could afford. A handsome black man frying up slices of spam in a pan. Cheese--some sort of white cheese on top. He stacks two and puts them on a bun. He eats. He dosen't gag.

I've never been a fan of Spam. I'd rather eat Underwood Deviled Ham than Spam.
Image
But that doesn't mean I like it.

Spam had a setback recently because they decided metal shavings would be a nice additive. They had to recall 220,000 pounds of it because a few pussies bitched. I feel for them but still don't like it.

I recommend a nice Chipped Beef on Toast. Otherwise known as SOS or Shit On a Shingle. We ate that often enough, usually at midrats, when I was putting myself at risk protecting the sea lanes. For you. Don't bother thanking me. I know you care plenty. It is surprisingly expensive to make at home because dried beef is hard to hard to find because the only recipe in the world that uses it is contains the word shit.
Image
Here's a nice recipe I use.
READY IN: 15mins SERVES: 4

1 (2 ounce) package dried beef
1⁄4 cup butter
1⁄4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1⁄8 teaspoon ground pepper

Directions

Cut beef into ribbons or pieces.
Melt butter in pan on medium heat.
Mix in flour and pepper with a whisk or fork.
SLOWLY add milk, mixing constantly.
Bring to simmer and add beef.
Simmer for five minutes.
Serve over toast.

They are worth eating only at 3 am on Ritz crackers.

I thanked your post as a way to express my gratitude for your military service.

I don't have much experience eating canned meat products myself, Spam or otherwise. But I have seen it on some store shelves here, so somebody must be buying it.

Fuck Ritz. I think Vienna sausages on Doritos sounds better. Thanks!
