Burger King says, 'aloha' to Spam ( o _ O ) Something Posing As Meat. Do you like Spam?

When I hear the phrase spam and eggs the first thing I usually think of is Monty Python. That's not to say that I haven't ever enjoyed the guilty pleasure of a sandwich of scrambled eggs and Spam. But the much maligned potted meat is more than an occasional meal item in Hawaii, it's an institution.
McDonald's has offered the pinkish mystery meat as part of its breakfast menu in Hawaii for five years. Now its rival Burger King is getting in on the action. The King recently began offering the Spam Platter, which consists of two slabs of Spam, flanked on either side by white rice and scrambled eggs. The Croissanwich or Biscuit Sandwich with Spam have also been added to the menu. I wonder if they've created any ad spots with the King flashing the "hang loose" sign with one hand while digging into a Spam platter with the other.
In the Army, if it wasn't canned C Rations, it was Spam this and Spam that. One of their favorite things to do was chop up Spam and put it in white gravy. Then they would put it either on biscuits or toast for breakfast and on mashed potatoes for lunch. We called it SOS (I can't tell you what the initials stand for because there might be kids reading this.). We were considered fortunate if there were green scrambled eggs mixed in with the Spam and not the gravy mess (Don't ask why the eggs were green.). I think that is where the great writer Dr. Seuss got his idea for his book "Green Eggs and Ham". It got to where I liked the canned C Rations better than Spam. At least the C Rations varied what was in the cans. It was even better when the Army changed to the freeze-dried add hot water kind of meals that people now buy to take hiking and camping. No Spam in them!! (+ info
Why is this happening to me?
I often feels like crying when i mentioned about my injury and yada. And talking to somebody I am unfamiliar with makes me feel like crying too. And I often cried just over a small stuff like my shampoo got replaced by another brand... Seriously, what happened to me? And sometimes, when I get maligned or sometime else, my heart is kinda heartache.

easiest infection to spread by touch on wooden rod?
A neighbourhood bully is out there to malign my name..and disturb my office ..he leans on a wooden rod...what can i apply there at night ...so that when he comes there and touches it in the morning ....he gets ill for at least a month.... police, lawyer or other neighbours are not an option ...
I am not going to pay for his foolish acts ...he has been out to get me for past three years ...and thats it .....i want to fix him without letting him know...coz i believe in better ...less riskier solutions....i dont want to give him any chance any more....he is planning big against me....and i have to do something like this to avert a big loss ...
believe me i have tried all other methods ...ignored him, replied to his positve talks etc...scared him by smiling at a joke targeted at him...
flu looks easiest thing ...any ideas
another way is moving out which will help him to further malign me...i just want him to put him out of order for a month suggest me easiest and least dangerous thing ...
Im going to stick to answering the question and ignore your motives, etc.
You dont have any good infectious choices. Nothing you could aply to something he leans on is going to have much chance of creating infection, even if it were plague, smallpox, or the like. Ignoring the issue of the unobtainability of these, and the related issue of collateral injuries to other innocents or yourself, nothing is really going to have good odds of infection is he only leans against the post. And certainly nothing is going to lay him out for a month. You need a more surefire mechanism to achieve your goal.
Now, if that post could just PENETRATE HIS SKULL OR CHEST CAVITY, then youd have some choices. In that case plain old Staph aureus would probably be your best choice. But lets face it, if the post gets into those spots, you dont need an infectious disease help to make sure he is away for a month.
Envenomation by snakes or insects is anothe possibility, but for that youre going to give me 10 more points. (+ info
About breast health..Help me please...What should I do?
I have found a big lump in my right breast for one month. It's hard and lies in the top of my right breast. I don't know whether it's malign or benign. It makes me feel nervous and tense. One month later, it seems to be bigger I want to check my breast, but I don't know where I should go: medical clinic or general hospital. Could someone please help me?
.If you are concerned, then go to your doctor and have him/her check it and go from there. It's VERY unusual for a young woman your age to have breast cancer, but it still may be something that should be addressed. Even if not, for your peace of mind, get it looked at. My family practice doctor examines my breasts yearly when I go in for my pelvic exam. You don't have to go to the hospital for your issue unless your doc orders tests or a mammogram. (+ info
Left ovarian cystic focus with debris suspicious for haemorrhagic cyst? Endometriotic.?
Hi, may anyone interpret this medical terms to layman terms and advise if this is malign or non malign? What precautions or any advice for healing? Thank you.
haemorrhagic means that if it haemorrages (bursts) it could cause problems. (i think) so basically you have a cyst on your left ovary which has been caused by endometriosis and they are concerned about it bursting and cusing more problems. hope this helps sorry if it scared you. good luck (+ info
im getting a surgery to removed a lump on my breast,thats painfull?
they dont know if is malign or benign,im scared
I had a lump removed from my breast and it was benign. I can sympathize with you for being scared. Try to relax. They say that if the lump is painful it usually is not cancerous. Hope that is true. Be brave! I hope everything turns out to be O.K. I will say a prayer for you! (+ info
Do tumors hurt when you touch them?
for example...breast tumors.....(malign or beningn).....I have a lump in my belly (pea size) and it hurts when I touch it so I want to know if that might be a tumor.....or a cyst
No one here can answer that other than in a general way . . because most cancerous lumps do not hurt, that does not mean that one might not be pressing on a nerve . . and end up hurting. However, any type of pain or unexplained lump needs to be examined as soon as possible. No one knows if this is serious or not, so it is better to be safe than sorry.
Good luck. Go see a doctor. (+ info
I'm so pale! how can I get a tan SAFELY?
I love natural tanned people. And I hate orange monsters. My skin is so pale and I wanted to know how can I get a naturally beautiful color, WITHOUT exposing my skin to malign melanoma or skin-cancer. I also don't want to look orange... do someone know how to get it? :S
I have the same problem. I use this: http://www.boots.com/en/Garnier-Skin-Naturals-Summer-Body-Moisturising-Lotion-250ml_24007/
Its a tanning moisturiser. Its affordable and it is the highest recommended by 351 people out of 380. It is safe and gradual, so you don't come out looking like an orange!! (+ info
As a muslim I feel so persecuted, WHY??
You have to understand I have strongly entrenched views regarding the west and their enforced ideology....However, i'm prepared to accept a more liberal view. Recently, i travelled and attended some parties, where i was introduced to (I THINK??) ecstasy, and that opened my mind to new parameters to explore. With all the bad things in the world, i'm now thinking of converting to Judaism as i realise that atrocities can only malign my brothers of islam. Am i rejecting my faith for an ideal, though not perfect world? I don't like being easily recognised, so i have now shaved my beard and started drinking light beer. As a result I have felt more accepted.....Is this wrong???
First off I think that persecution of anyone for the sake of their religion is wrong.You're starting to be more of a free thinker now so go and explore the things that you don't know about.That's the only true way to know what's right.Not just someone telling you it's right.You shouldn't convert just based on being accepted though.I live in the USA and I don't have feelings against anyone who TRULY follows Islam.Just the radicals that think the whole west is the enemy.If this makes you feel good and that you're doing what you should then do it with the absence of any guilt.That will make you more spiritual in the long run.

Raised mole problem/question?
I am wondering wether or not, skin cancer can occur from a raised mole, if it gets ripped off. Thats what i have heard from a couple of people and i just wanna make sure. I had a raised mole, but i got pissed and sort of scratched it/dammaged it, in the next couple days it fell off entirely. Now its fine. I would like to know however, besides the fact that moles are annoying as hell, what problems do they pose ? Can they turn from benign to malign (probably spelled it wrong, im not from the usa, you get the idea) because of you damaging it ? Or it doesent matter, and they would have to be cancerous from the beginning ? Because i have another one, and if i would fall off as nicely as the one before, i would take it off myself, haha. Im gonna go see the doctor tho, i would just like to see my question answered. :)
Raised moles won't turn into cancer just because you scratch them - it's a myth.
Melanoma (the usually pigmented, very aggressive form of skin cancer) may initially look like, or even start from a flat mole. However, even scratching those won't be cause the cancer; the cancer decides on its own whether or not it wants to break out. If a flat mole grows, is irregularly shaped or unevenly pigmented, or starts bleeding spontaneously, have it looked at by a dermatologist. (+ info
