O’AHU, HAWAII — Researchers in Hawaii have uncovered a World War II-era submarine sandwich inside the island’s only 7-Eleven store location.
The sub, known in the early 1940s as a “Spam-n-Depression Special” is made up of mostly Spam, lettuce and iron ore.

According to 7-Eleven Spokesperson Ray Dinkins, “This is truly an historic day for everyone in the 7-Eleven family. While most of our food is pretty old, it’s rare that we find a food product with such historical significance. This thing survived Pearl Harbor, after all. That’s how you know it’s a hardy meal.”
Added Dinkins, “We were considering having the remnants of this sandwich placed in The 7-Eleven Corporate Museum of Unnatural History, but then some guy on his lunch break came in and wanted to buy it, so we sold it to him.”
At press time, initial reports were beginning to surface regarding a 7-Eleven in the Yuma, Ariz., area and the archaeological discovery of a paleolithic-era hotdog, though there is no word yet on whether this could be the controversial and elusive “missing sausage link.”
