OK, Thanksgiving dinner taken care of.

Shouldn't that whole thing be encased in green Jell-o for a unique dinner treat for the whole family (and guests)?

So much for breakfast, gentlemen.

My aunt did bring something like this, with bits of some sort of meat as dicey as Spam or moreso, encased in Jell-O, to my parents' house for a Thanksgiving a decade (+/- a few years) back, and grew enraged that neither my brother or I, both vegetarians, would try it. God had put the beasts of the field on Earth for the use of men, after all.

You probably have heard of the prevalence of Spam in Hawaii in the '70s and '80s, perhaps still, for rather unsurprising legacy marketing and availability reasons. Ramen (or in Hawaii, usually simian) served with Spam and the like. I'm not sure if the simian served at the McDonald's there came with.

Delightful spell-checker fun again. "Saimin" above "corrected" twice in simian fashion.
