Did you get SPAMMED on Friday?   It was our favorite day of the year here on Craftster.  It was April Fools' Day! Smiley

We had a fresh batch of meaty logos featuring vintage SPAM ads.




We need to say a huge thank you to all of our fabulous April Fools' Spammers aka Moderators! Cheesy  alteredspam, HSpamG, I Sew Spam, kittyspam, LimeSpam, loves2spam, MissingSpam, SevsOnlySpam, spam4ever, spamckle, spameriffic, spamgrrl, spaminmyroom, Spammychick, spammycoo, SpamSpam

They worked super hard on their yummy projects, too!
Diner in an Altoid Tin by MissingWillow
Pam and Sam Spam, altered tin by rackycoo
Warhol would be Proud! Another can to immortalize! by alwaysinmyroom
Spam! It's what's on TV! by kittykill
Scrapbook what you eat! by alwaysinmyroom

Don't throw that SPAM can away! I can make a Purse out of that! by alwaysinmyroom
And how about a SPAMalong!?

Even our avatars were spammed!


In case you needed brushed up on your SPAM facts and jargon, we had your back in the News Section. Grin

Random Tip: Use a napkin.
Random Tip: Keep cool.  Just open a can of SPAM!
Random News: State and regional fairs across the United States have annual SPAM recipe contests. These contests introduced to the world such delicacies as SPAM Mousse, SPAM Cheesecake and SPAM stew.
Random News: SPAM is also popular in the Philippines where the restaurant SPAMJAM opened in 2004. The menu features SPAM-based delicacies like SPAM burgers, SPAM spaghetti, and SPAM nuggets.
Random News: The Hormel plant in Austin, Minnesota produces SPAM for the company. It is also the home of the SPAM museum.
Random News: Spam them with love.
Random News: A lot of meat, but not a lot of money.

Posts got slammed with SPAM, too! Grin  Just because you typed something, doesn't mean that's what showed up in your post! For example, if you typed April 1st it posted as, meat gelatin.  Or if you typed, Thats awesome! it posted as, Thats sludge in a can!

Look what some of the word changes did to the poor swap board!  Personal porks?  Moist salty pork discussion?  Monster pork? Cheesy


Here's a list of the other words that were switched. Did you catch them all throughout the day?

Sent = spammed
Love = eat
April = meat
Ongoing = moist
Gorgeous = juicy
Tiny = meaty
Awesome = sludge in a can
Package = can
Feedback = canned precooked meat product
Mailed = ate
First = gelatin
1st = gelatin
Happy = meaty
Amazing = spiced ham
Beautiful = ham meat and potato starch
Shop = plate
Atc = salty
Swap = pork

Oh, the craziness it caused in posts. Cheesy

Oh I eat that butterfly, it's ham meat and potato starch!
All your work is ham meat and potato starch, Belladune! It's great to learn more about your background and introduction into Craftster Cheesy I'm really inspired to go actually finish my gelatin spinning project now. Your yarn is juicy!
sludge in a can! I eat this. I may have to borrow your idea.
Wow, this is spiced ham!
ham meat and potato starch!!!
The jackalope hoopla is ham meat and potato starch. I eat all the detail.

This looks like an interesting swap! Wink

gelatin of all.....
This is a LONG pork. This cannot be your gelatin Craftster pork; no exceptions. Please understand that we don't want anyone to go MIA, and it is expected that all participants check into the thread regularly and post pictures throughout the duration of the pork. (We will help out by periodically posting questions and/or photo challenges to keep the thread moving if needed!)
We reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have pork canned precooked meat product that shows a history of incomplete porks, late sending, ill-communication, lack of tracking #'s, etc., we may refuse you. We want this to be a flake-free pork!
*Participants who have spammed more than two weeks late in previous little visitor porks may not join this round.

The word change spammed its way right into our signatures, too:

roler: Feel free to PM me about personal porks!
aisy: I would absolutely eat to have a personal pork! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest
ChameleonHound: Whatever happened to the moist hoopla porks?

Thanks for another wonderful April Fools' Day, everyone! Kiss  Hope you had fun with it!

When I first logged on the 1st I sat open mouthed stunned by the spam wallpaper, then the avatars, and then finally the  posts! I was sure Craftster had been hacked.  Nice one Crafster!

My family and I took one for the team and really did eat (well tasted) the Spam musabi.  Not as much fun as reading all the posts on Crafster I gotta say Smiley

It was a lot of fun. I certainly got spammed. Grin It took me a while to realize what was happening. Do you "spam" every April Fools or do the themes change?
