The day is upon us

It's true... I am going to eat SPAM in every meal for 30 days. Most people aren't as worried about the "how" as much as the "why," but my reasons for embarking on this SPAM journey are quite sound.

For starters, the timing feels right. 2007 is the 70th anniversary of the invention of SPAM. It's also the Chinese Year of the Pig. That, my friends, is the stars aligning. I don't need further motivation, but there's more. In less than a month, the most anticipated book in the history of meat-tribute publishing is hitting shelves. I'm talking about The Book of SPAM. Throw in the fact that SPAMalot the musical is touring the country, and well...

My point is that there’s a Category 5 SPAM storm happening out there and I want to be a part of it.

And it dawned on me. I could eat SPAM every meal starting on July 30th, 2007. That would give me three weeks of physical and mental preparation for when The Book of SPAM comes out on August 21st. And by week four, I would finally be ready to savor a bite of SPAM with every page of the book!

It's perfect.

And come August 28th, when it's all said and done, I can look back on my journey with pride... one strong SPAMFAN stronger.
