Ad placement of the week

I think this is great, atop the Spam folder in Gmail (still beta) sits a text-ad for Hormel Foods luncheon meat, a.k.a Spam!

Yes, very clever move by Hormel.

It appears they've underwritten the placement of both these contextual ads on Google and the recipes themselves on RecipeSource.

If nothing else, they've gotten a lot of online buzz from people finding the ads and chuckling about their placement.

Have people ever eaten SPAM?

I'll admit to have eaten it when i was a kid. Not only that, I liked it.

Interesting idea, although that recipe sounds dreadful!
