"T" Oxymoron: Targeted Spam

Now that’s a great oxymoron! Funny thing about spam is that when I was living overseas, the one product that seemed to pop up all over the world, including far flung corners of 3rd world countries, was… Spam! That “who knows what it’s really made of” conglomerate of some kind of animal protein and gel.

That is one company with an incredible distribution system.

Even more fascinating is that it (Hormel Foods) hosts a SPAM fan club! And a SPAM museum! And a SPAMMOBILE that could be headed your way!

Who knew?

We’re on the homestretch for A-Z oxymorons for you wordinistas out there. I’m a little worried about the next few letters…stay posted! I won’t let you down.

    Gosh. I actually like Spam. My mom used to fry it up in butter and we’d drench it in catsup and called it spamloaf.
