Lo, many years ago, I was editing a magazine about the Internet when a distinctly putrid smell ravaged the office. My art director, Tom DeMay, had decided to scan fistfuls of Spam to illustrate a story on the subject. As he noted, "Only genuine Spam was used for this story. Accept no substitutions."

So while I gaze at the curiously beautiful imagery on the blog Scansandwiches, I have two thoughts. One, does this chap's office smell? And, does he eat the other half of the sandwich for lunch?

I scanned a cauliflower—both whole and in smaller pieces—once for an article.

Oh pee-U! I don't understand how Spam can be popular, but it must be because they have "Chicken Spam", "Spam Lite"... not sure what else. No way it's passing these lips! And... that guys office smells - for sure!
