Snacember 26

Too.  Much. Ham.

Traditional Christmas Ham,

In veritable ham coma.

But still sane enough to know that this, right here?  Is VERY VERY WRONG.

I mean, I know it is either the joy dream or nightmare of my people, but very. wrong.

But hilarious.

Reminds me of the time I went to a conference in Houston, and the vegetarians asked what items were on the buffet that they could eat.  They were motioned over to the following items:

Salad (with bacon bits and salami)
Cream of Potato Soup (cooked in chicken stock)
Corn (with bacon)
Collard Greens (cooked with ham hocks)
Green Beans (more bacon)
And BBQ beans (bacon AND sausage)

God Bless us Every One.

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. I just wanted to say that my mom got me your book for Christmas and I am very excited to read it! Thanks for all the holiday tips; I have really enjoyed reading them. Have a happy New Year!

  2. too funny. or sad. can't decide. It's like a time I was in NY with a friend and we went into a Jewish deli to get sandwiches (and black and white cookies, of course) and she ordered a ham & cheese. The guy behind the counter (obviously non-plussed over what he thought was another snarky jokester) said 'very funny. now what do you want.' not deterred, my friend repeated her order, and finally I had to point out to her that perhaps she should order a nice roast beef or bowl of soup.....
