Breaking a long standing tradition of pork and pork product avoidance by the Jewish community, a Kosher version of SPAM recently available at several New York Deli's has become the most popular seller, jumping ahead of Pastrami in recent weeks.
"I never knew a cloven hoof animal could taste so good", said Mel Gibson, no relation to the formerly famous actor, but a recently converted Goyim. "I love it, especially when it's fried crisp and stacked high with a nice piece of Swiss cheese and a little spicy brown mustard, and a garlic pickle on the side…" Gibson wouldn't shut up.
Critics of the supposed "Kosher" certification, question how SPAM could find a Rabbi who would actually perform the inspection of the plant and provide the certification. SPAM marketing representative, Benny Annajetz tells reporters, "Rabbi Horowitz is a big believer in the modernization of the Jewish faith, and of slow roasted BBQ ribs as well. He has certified our processing plant for cleanliness and quality and that's all I have to say".
"Some of the rules are ridiculous", says Horowitz. "Created at a time when nothing was clean. The water, farming techniques, livestock feed, even the soap was covered in poo. Pork. It's what's for dinner, baby. Baby back ribs, that is".
The 9 inch high stack fried SPAM sandwich sells for $3.95 and comes complete with your recommended annual allowance for sodium.
