Great moments in Papergreat history: Spam advertises on the blog

Screenshot from shortly after midnight on March 1, 2012.

Late last night, I became perfectly giddy when I came across this advertisement for Spam -- Spam! -- on Papergreat.

I'm a big Spam fan, so it's way cool to see it right here alongside the ephemera.

The funny thing is that, until now, I've only ever had one small mention of Spam on the blog.1

Meanwhile, it's clearly time for Underwood's Deviled Ham to step up and respond to Spam's advertisement. Underwood has gotten a lot of free love here on Papergreat. It's time for them to put their money where their meat is!

Or, ahem, something like that.

1. To rectify that, I must say of Spam: "I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!" (And, as an aside, the glorious Spam sketch premiered on December 15, 1970, the day after I was born. Spam.)


  1. I'm not sure if I ever ate spam but I know I ate Underwood's Deviled Ham. Can't remember if I liked it though :)
