DAILY DIRT: I wonder if Harley Quinn eats Spam?

Daily Dirt for Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022

Before we get to Spam, let’s have a little fun with Halloween … Welcome to today’s three thoughts that make up Vol. 417 of The Daily Dirt.

1. Ahhh … Halloween. Just the thought drums up images of ghosts and goblins, trick or treating and innovative costumes.

According to CBS News and several other (lesser) media outlets, here’s a sampling of this year’s most popular costumes for kids and adults alike:

Gold medal: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. With all the potential Oscar talk surrounding actor Austin Butler’s performance as The King in the latest “Elvis” movie, it’s no surprise Elvis and Priscilla Presley might be the hottest couple’s costume of the year.

Silver medal: Harley Quinn. The  popular DC Comics superhero/villain continues to attract fans of all ages. Personally, I like the red, white and blue hair and fishnet tights.

Bronze medal: “Top Gun”: Yep, the influence of that Tom Cruise movie is still going strong.

2. I came across the following bit of wisdom earlier this week:

“No matter how cold it is, someone is still sleeping with the fan on.”

Someone must know my wife.

3. I don’t even begin to understand this, because never in my life have I been able to take a bite of this product.

CNN is reporting that Spam, arguably the most famous brand of canned, pressed meat, is on track for an eighth straight year of record sales.

Apparently, the 85-year-old product has been undergoing a cultural reinvention. Reportedly, Hormel says it can’t make Spam fast enough and is boosting production capacity.

Spam is now even on the menus at fine-dining restaurants in some major cities. There is even a pumpkin spice flavor of Spam available.

The world, as we know it, is surely nearing the end.

Steve Thought O’ The Day — I couldn’t resist finding out what exactly goes into Spam. Surprisingly, Spam contains only six ingredients. Those are: pork with ham meat added (that counts as one), salt, water, potato starch, sugar and sodium nitrite. Still doesn’t make it sound any better.

Steve Eighinger writes daily for Muddy River News. He would like fried Spam.
