Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Not the Nigerian version, nor the Flying Circus version--Workers Spam it up at Springville plant
News staff writer

SPRINGVILLE - As a Southerner whose mom knew how to fix Spam 47 different ways, Mitch Liddell believes it's his duty in life to pass on his heritage.

That's why once a year the welding machines and drills go quiet at the Liddell Trailers plant in Springville. Just as some plants shut down for Thanksgiving, this plant that builds custom trailers for 18-wheelers stopped everything for Spam-O-Rama one day last week.

Spam-O-Rama has been a Liddell Trailers fixture since 1986. One day each year all employees bring a dish that features Spam. The event, which Liddell calls a "job perk," touts the wonderfulness and dispels the myths about the canned meat that has been one of his favorite foods since he was a boy.

"It's an education process," Liddell said as he watched his employees dig into Spam lasagna, Spam cornbread, scalloped potatoes and Spam, macaroni and cheese Spam, Spam-in-a-blanket, Spam dip, pinto beans and Spam, butterbeans and Spam and other delicacies. "You have to educate your employees. Some have to be culturally enlightened." [...]
Indeed. And what's the best part of the SPAM? Why it's,
"When you pull it out of the can, you have that end piece with all the gelatin on it," he said. "That's the tenderloin."
