Maybe Rush Limbaugh was brought down by these?: Spam-flavored macadamia nuts! Only in Hawaii...

This goes straight to the top of horrifying but can't-look-away food creations of 2009. Hawaii, as you probably know, is the (non-email) Spam capital of the United States; they've created an entire subcuisine around the potted pork product. And I must admit to enjoying Spam musubi now and again myself. But Spam-flavored nuts? (SFX: gentle gagging / throwing up in mouth)
I have this theory that the use of meat as a condiment is one of the more obvious signs of our coming apocalypse. Between bulgogi hot dogs, pastrami hamburgers, bacon everything, and now this, maybe those ancient Mayans were onto something....LINK: http://tastyislandhawaii.com/blog/2009/12/28/macadamia-nuts-with-spam®-classic-flavor/
(note: Love the Spamnuts musubi concept! Very pomo.)
