The ham that didn't pass its physical, aka Spam, got its due at Spamapalooza today. As part of a promotional event for the upcoming production of "Spamalot" at the Ahmanson Theatre, the Center Theatre Group hosted a Spam-themed mini-festival in the Music Center's courtyard earlier today. Ye olde jesters and clowns were on hand as musical theater lovers and Monty Python fans (see picture after the jump) lined up for tickets while the 'Tina Taco Truck in the courtyard dished out Spam tacos (three for $6). Don't tell this to vegans, but the dirty truth about Spam is that it tastes just like salty, grilled tofu.
