The NYTimes reports that a decrease in consumer confidence means an increase in sales of the best meat a shiny buffalo nickel can buy:

Through war and recession, Americans have turned to the glistening canned product from Hormel as a way to save money while still putting something that resembles meat on the table. Now, in a sign of the times, it is happening again, and Hormel is cranking out as much Spam as its workers can produce.

I have no comment, other than to say that I’d rather eat SPAM sandwiches for lunch than eat Big Macs every day.

And now, check out a photo essay from the SPAM hall of shame fame.
