Internet & Networking "In October Commtouch reported an 18% drop in global spam levels (comparing September and October). This was largely attributed to the closure of Spamit around the end of September. Spamit is the organization allegedly behind a fair percentage of the worlds pharmacy spam. Analysis of the spam trends to date reveals a further drop in the amounts of spam sent during Q4 2010. December's daily average was around 30% less than September's. The average spam level for the quarter was 83% down from 88% in Q3 2010. The beginning of December saw a low of nearly 74%."

Pan-fried, a light mayo, and some hearty rye - it's not that bad.

Nah, way too much vinegar and not enough pepper. I'll take El Yucateco Chile de Habanero (green or red) hot sauce any day. Mmmmm... habaneros... [drool]

Grill a thin slice and put it on hamburger with a slice of pineapple. This is the best way I have had it so far.

Breakfast hash is another good way to eat it. It's great for camping since it is compact and doesn't require refrigeration.

Another good idea, a hamburger topper! It's definitely a must on a camping trip.

Clearly, sir, you are secretly on the payroll of some vague, unnamed commercial interest dedicated to subversively advocating spiced pork products. Everyone knows that the M2SC (Mystery Meat Standards Consortium) had recommended canned corned beef as the standard for all breakfast hashes in the draft version of their V5 standards... until Hormel objected, that is.
