I have been told that Spam is extremely popular in all the Pacific islands, including Hawaii. I hear it is still "a thing" in the upper Midwest, too. Anyway, it contains calories, which is a trait you generally want in food.
Very popular in Russia as well. They started eating it during WWII when they traded with our GI's, been in love with it since.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
