SPAM Museum Hosts British Couple’s Wedding
Austin, Minnesota is home of the SPAM Museum, the canned meat, not the emails. And apparently the museum also hosts international weddings.
Mark Benson from Liverpool, England, who's full legal name is Mark I Love Spam Benson, married his girlfriend Anne Mousley this week at the museum. Guests were treated to appetizers created from SPAM recipes, like SPAM sushi and SPAM doughnuts.
