Passengers Stuck on Cruise Ship Sent Airdrop of Spam

A luxury cruise ship that's been stranded in the Pacific for two days has received air-dropped supplies including Pop-Tarts, Spam, and canned crab meat. The ship stalled due to an engine fire, and tugboats are currently slowly pulling it towards San Diego. Carnival, the cruise line that owns the ship, will refund all passengers and offer coupons for future cruises, which we're sure they'll jump at the opportunity to take. Somehow we don't think Spam Pop-Tart sandwiches were quite what they had in mind when they signed up for a luxury cruise.
