SPAM.....Who buys it?

I find this to be a great mystery. Anyone I talk to makes a face when I mention buying a can of Spam. But every store I go into is well stocked with this canned meat. Someone must be buying it.
Is anyone care to 'fess up and/or share recipes? I am willing to admit that I enjoy fried Spam and eggs once in a while, and I seem to remember a dip that involved Spam, Velveeta and a food processor.

That dip which involved spam, Velveeta and a food processor: are you sure there wasn't a (raw) whole fish in the recipe, too?
Breakfast Sandwich. Lightly toasted sourdough bread, mayo, sliced beefsteak tomato, two thin pices of fried spam, and a fried egg. All together it tastes pretty good!
The most disgusting recipe I have yet read (makes Kraft Dinner seem like haute cuisine):
FRENCH FRY SPAM CASSEROLE
Categories: Main dish
Yield: 8 servings
1 pk Frozen french fry potatoes,
-thawed (20 oz)
2 c Shredded Cheddar cheese
2 c Sour cream
1 cn Condensed cream of chicken
-soup (10 3/4 oz)
1 cn SPAM Luncheon Meat, cubed
1/2 c Chopped red bell pepper
1/2 c Chopped green onion
1/2 c Finely crushed corn flakes
Heat oven to 350'F. In large bowl, combine potatoes, cheese, sour
cream, and soup. Stir in SPAM, bell pepper, and green onion. Spoon
into 13x9″ baking dish. Sprinkle with crushed flakes. Bake 30-40
minutes or until thoroughly heated.
you could buy both frozen chopped onion and frozen sliced bell peppers.
Hawaii consumes more spam per capita than any other US state, although I think some of the Pacific Trust Territories may consume even more than that. Spam and egg sandwiches, Spam musubi, spam fried rice, fried spam as a breakfast meat, spam in saimin (ramen), you name it, we will find a way to use it here.
