I was a little shocked to find that, when I offered to take Jane anywhere in Minnesota 'within reason', she insisted on the Spam Museum in Austin, near the border of Iowa.
The Spam Museum rests in the downtown of the city, which is home to Hormel Headquarters. In some parts of the world these days, spam is more associated with the junk people get in their emails. But the term originated with the famous luncheon meat, which famously grosses out, and is consumed by millions.
The luncheon meat was the first in the world to require no refrigeration. And so the notion of meat in a can, absurd, yes, has caused countless numbers to imagine or falsify the apparent contents of those cans.
