The big slab on the bottom that looks like it was deep fried is what made me take a break to fix myself a snack.

You can do a lot to Spam, but you can't change the taste of that original beast parts treat!

One thing about that Spam, (Sumo food), you can't hurt it, any more than it is already.

I've always been curious about Underwood Deviled Ham. Anyone eaten it?

As a kid we had some tins of it in the pantry. I remember seeing it there on the top shelf for years and years. Probably still good.

Oscar (uh-oh, two Oscars):

Why, "YES", I have had Underwood Deviled Ham. I had it at my rich friend's house when I was a kid.

I had seen the TV commercials, but had never actually seen any food in such a small can except for cat food (which I had not eaten either).

I found that Underwood Deviled Ham was similar in appearance and smell as cat food which came in a similar size tin.

It did not suit my taste (pooh pooh) and I understood why it is sold in small quantities. En mass, the smell and appearance would be overwhelming.

It is inevitable that any cyclist's mind will gravitate to cycling, or food. So since this has become a "food thread", I would like to say that I enjoy those little smoked oysters.

Mike, is Spam cheaper than cat food? For the cat, I mean. I don't think we should let anyone get the idea we cyclists enjoy cat food (even if any of us do). I remember Mel Gibson in Mad Max VII (whatever), when he was eating that dog food, right outta the can.

See, it'll put hairs on your chest (maybe your legs, too)!

I guess this would not be a good time to talk about those giant insects...

Yes, Mike, there's two of us here now, so be careful what you say to me, the other Oscar Might think you're talking to him, so from now on you can call me "Racso", I have nothing against the name Oscar, But for the last fifty three years people has been calling me Oscar., so I think its time to change, right Mike?

I kinda like it, "Rasco...."

Hey, why not make the other guy use, "Rasco?" I mean, you were here first (right)?

Now this is a "name thread."

Before Joe kills this thread (and puts it out of its misery),
I want to say to Hunter, could you verify that my absolute hero, John Stamstad (o.k., you weenies turn the other way), the guy who keeps pure vegetable oil in a water bottle and eats Little Debbies for bonk insurance and rides like a pure demon out of (that place), actually was advised by his nutrition specialist to eat Spam at night (when he had time to digest it)?

Nobody else laugh, John will smoke your **s. Am I wrong, Hunter?

Yes it is true. John tends to eat some of the most sugar loaded, and the most fatty foods you can get. I have also read that while he is riding he has eaten candy bars. I persoanlly have seen him come in devour Gu, Ice Cream, a hamburger, and a bananna, drink a Coke, puke, get back on and take off. This was done at the then titled 24 hours of Canaan when he entered under 4 variations of his name. The reason for this at 5 ft. 6" and weighing 140 pds? He has no body fat at all. He actually needs this stuff in order to continue. He is also asthmatic. Pete is correct John will smoke you!

And to put it straight I don't have any thing against the other Oscar, I just really wanted to change it for a long long time and be called "Racso"

That's, "Racso," not, "Rasco," Joe. Don't worry, I did it too.

SPAM is so gross my mom never lets me get it., The one time she did let me get it...darn..she wasted 2-3 bucks. I opened the can and got hit by the smell and the gross sight of the fat jelly, I threw that dang can in the trash and vomitted in the same motion. And that isn't nearly as bad as vienna sausage..ew

At a rough guess, I would say the spam thing was meant to hide the advertising material they had posted (although I could possibly be wrong). So it's probably a good thing anyway.
