LONG LIVE MYSTERY MEAT

SPAM is 70.

Not the spam you get in your e-mail inbox, but the mystery meat in the famous rectangle can that at one time only could be opened with a special key stuck on the top.



To mark its platinum anniversary, SPAM is offering to its loyal, brave partakers, single-serve, easy-to-open packets with campy verbiage that claims, "This dotted line is like a freeway, the freeway to a delicious explosion in your mouth."

And that"s not all! Besides the new-and-improved SPAM container, the new-and-improved SPAM Web site has an interactive museum through which you can browse.

Who could ask for anything more?

Electronic spam, BTW, was named for the Monty Python SPAM sketch, set in a cafe where nearly every item on the menu includes SPAM luncheon meat.

Sad thing is, that original can of Spam from 70 years ago-if opened today-would have the same smell, taste, texture as a fresh can made today. Long live preservatives!
