I like to keep an eye my Museum of Spam’s press coverage with Google news alerts, but the poor old Googlebot often confuses it with the Spam Museum that opened for the love of the tinned meat in 2001. Anyway. I was intrigued by the Oskaloosa Herald’s story of a baseball team’s visit to that place which included a 14 year-old banjo player (‘this kid has a future’) and a mystery dinner. The thing is the writer, Burdell Hensley, is too busy fuming over the biased American media to provide an answer to the mystery… so of what might a mystery dinner at a spam museum consist?
I don’t do this often, but here’s a shout to Agi over at Digital Silence, because he asked for it. (You should not regard this link as evidence that Agi was bribed to report on my Museum of Spam; he reported the story solely on the basis of its news value.)
And thanks to everyone else who links to the Museum of Spam:
Canada’s Globe & Mail
Chris Rachael and Chaz’s Domestic Tranquillity
Thanks very much if you link to the Museum of Spam. If you place the URL of the page containing the link in the comments here, I’ll add you to this list.
Update: This list is now maintained over here.
