To me a little more light hearted than suicide (though not so light on the stomach), this question may baffle bards, poets, philosophers,  chemists, biologists, physicians, and morticians for ages to come.


My idea...Check out this website:

http://pemtropics.mit.edu/~jcho/spam/archive.html

SPAM-ku archives.

Then, after you've got the overall "flavor" (bad analogy!) Maybe we could write some SPAM-ku here to express our philosophical ponderings about this putrid pink conglomeration that is ever swathed with the ectoplasmic jelley of our curiosities... that we have called  SPAM ....AM ...AM ...AM...     (formidable echo)


Using the 5 - 7 - 5 syllable format, here is an example or two to inspire you potential masters of Spam-ku.


She shook the cold tin,
a morbid thud, and Spam WAS.
Porcine NIRVANA!

or

A trail of  vomit,
speckled with shards of pink meat,
Sam ate Spam again!

or

Sue's windshield was struck
by the slick pink projectile.
SPAM road rage is real!


Have fun!

Yes Swamp Faeryie,

that is a VERY good description of Spam, but I think you could improve a bit on the 5-7-5 syllable concept!      (LOL!)

Perhaps spam is an archetype used to portray the cheap and petty use of money to solve all of life's difficulties.

But all phlosophical conjecture aside for a moment, I especially liked this one!

SPAM: slurp it on up!
It tickles on the way down
and on the way up.

Her Gut sprayed his tux
with frothy pink residue.
Pre-prom Spam milkshake.

Awesome for spackling

half pig and half troll.

A philosophical Spam-ku...


Is the whole of Spam
really greater than the scum
of it's countless parts?

The question of origin, Spam-ku style...


Was Spam created?
Or has it always been so
repulsively gross?

SPAMagnosticism...


Some claim "There is Spam".
Others say "It isn't real".
Those who don't know, wretch.

Nihilist Spam-ku.


There are no laws which
govern the production of
this purposeless mass.
