No not the digital version...The pseudo-meat version. This morning I heard a story on NPR about how Hormel has seen a 14% increase in sales over the past quarter. This is mainly due to increasing sales in SPAM, as people can no longer afford to eat meat. While we haven't resorted to eating SPAM yet, our diet is nearly vegetarian lately. We generally only get meat (in the form of chicken or fish) once or twice a week. The rest of the time we get our protein from cheese and beans. It is rather ironic that our budget is the tightest it's been in years, even though we are both working and making more than we ever have since we've been married. But between daycare, food, and gas for our modest cars, we are just breaking even.
