    Did this recipe come from the ending credits of “Hot Shots”?

  4. Hefe says:

    Too bad, the brownie recipe in the credits is LEGENDARY!!!

  5. I go away for a few days and come back to Spam. Makes me sorry I have been gone.

  6. Hefe says:

    You could try the Bacon, Eggs,and Spam – that hasn’t got much Spam in it.

  7. Hefe says:

    That would be a great meal right before going to see SPAM-A-LOT on Broadway!

  8. Spamtastic! Spamalicious! Shaspam, Spamman! Spamdacious!

  9. Don, real men cannot even say Fritatta without laughing. I am actually thinking of someone from the South saying it.

    We’re knights of the round table
    We dance whene’er we’re able
    We do routines
    And chorus scenes
    With footwork im-pec-able
    We dine well here in Camelot
    We eat ham and jam and spam-a-lot!

  11. Hefe says:

    On second thought, let’ snot go to the south. Tis a silly place. They say Fritatta. Pass the spam please.

  12. You say Fritatta, I say Fritatta; let’s call the whole thing Spam.

    Hefe, why don’t you tinkle that on the ivories and we will all sing along…

    So, I’m branded as being weird for having a blog devoted to Central Asian “plav” by a guy who is posting SPAM recipes.

    I particularly enjoyed the sentence which says “continue cooking until SPAM is heated through”.

    Other recipes typically phrases such as “continue heating until [insert favorite meat here] is cooked” or “continue heating until [insert favorite seafood here] has turned pink”.

    Because SPAM is already cooked and already pink, one has to ask what is the point of heating it at all?

    Hakuna Fritatta!
    What a wonderful phrase
    Hakuna Fritatta!
    Ain’t no passing craze

    It means no worries
    For the rest of your days
    It’s our problem-free philosophy
    Hakuna Fritatta!

  15. Pretty good, Don. If I were the official scorer, I would probably give you 2 comment points for that. But seeing as how I am not, well, one it is.

    However, I do not think it means no worries in the Afican dialect from which Hakuna Matata comes. It rather means, “You resemble the hindquarters of a warthog and you smell like that too.” Kind of changes the meaning of the song but I would hate for you to use that in the wrong place. Could get ugly…

  16. Hey NKZ guru, how did the debut go today? We lifted you guys up…

    Did you have help? Even Moses needed help, and he just had to lift his arms and a staff up.
