Its hard to look for the word without the title, I didn't get it at first, but i got it. Maybe you should have zoomed in a little closer, because I kind of had a hard time looking for the word.

I think this would be better if we could see it more.

I like that you used the full frame. With this angle reading the text, specifically the song titles, was a bit difficult.

Buddha is my dogs name! I think this perhaps could have been more interesting if you had zoomed in on the 6. SPAM 2:24 and widened the aperture so that it blurred everything around it. Props for the Monty Python reference

One of the funniest skits in Monty Python's career.

How did Spam ever get put on the B side?!? Interesting concept on the challenge and the only Monty Python reference I've run across yet ( surprisingly ).

An interesting idea, but I think the depth of field needs to be a bit wider here, as the "Monty Python" portion of the label is already rather soft, and it is needed for the image to make sense. The lighting also seems a little dull.

Other than that one song title (which is very hard to see, thank goodness your title made me look for it), there isn't much connection to the challenge theme with this photo.

Very difficult to see the song title, almost wrote it off as a DNMC but after a second glance realized the tack name was spam. Nice shot of a record and the origin of the term.
