Aloha Spam!

Okay, this confirms it. I’d heard that Spam was very popular in Hawaii, and apparently, the rumors are true. Evidently McDonalds has been selling Spam creations over there for years and now, Burger King looks to get in on the action. Jaymes Song of the Associated Press reports:
Hoping to cash in on Hawaii's love affair with the pinkish meat product, Burger King Corp. last month began offering Spam for breakfast — going head-to-head with rival McDonald's Corp., which has been featuring Spam in the islands for years.

Burger King is offering the Spam Platter — two slices of Spam nestled between white rice and scrambled eggs. The fast-food giant also offers the Croissanwich or Biscuit Sandwich with Spam.

Denise Yamauchi, Burger King managing director in Hawaii, said sales have been "very good and very promising."
Promising and Spam, I bet you’ve never heard those two words used in the same sentence before. Sounds like trouble in paradise to me.

Ugh! It just gets worse and worse!

One of the worst Spamolizations I've seen is Spam sushi! Oh, yes, it is to be believed: a (semin-) nutritious food, adulterated so wantonly is, well, "Eeewww!"
