This year marks the 75th anniversary of the spiced ham product, and love it or hate it, that’s not an insignificant figure. I got an email from Spam’s PR reps, telling me that there are a dozen different varieties of Spam. This was news to me. Blindingly, joyously good news. It was like suddenly discovering the secret sixth volume of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, or waking up to realize that Star Wars Episode 1 was all just a bad dream.
To celebrate, I held the first ever office-wide Spam taste-a-thon, bringing in all twelve varieties, in the hopes of introducing my respected but Spamgnorant office-mates to a new taste sensation.
