Howdy Newbie.

Strangers shouldn’t ought to go tossing ham around in these parts. You seem to think you’re pretty fast with that ham. Do you think you’re faster than me?

My cousin's last name is Hamm. She works at a school. What a xenophobic last name! I'll have her arrested at once.

I don't believe this story. The Spanish teacher would not have said ham. They would have said "jamon". Nice try nubes.

The ham in Spain dries mainly in the plain.

Don’t hear any Jewish groups crying anti-Semetism over this. For that matter I would think the vegetarian community would be more offended by this. C’mon kid suck it up and be a MAN!! What would binLaden think?

Here is something I posted about Spanish ham a couple of years ago:

I was talking to my daughter at lunch today and she asked me if she had told me about what she had discovered about the Spanish fondness for cured ham.

She said she had traveled all over Europe and did not see the cured hams that hang from the ceilings in the delicatessens as is common in Spain. Usually, in the smaller delicatessens they have about fifty to one hundred, "severed legs," as she calls them, hanging from the ceiling, each with a little paper cup hanging below to catch any grease that leeches out of the ham.

Here is a picture I took of some of the completely cured hams in a local supermarket, with prices ranging from about $80 to $150.



She did her research and discovered that it all had its basis in religion, the Catholic religion to be exact.

As you all know, the Moors conquered the southern part of Spain and it remained under their control for over 600 years. But, in January of 1492, a year, known to all Americans, the Moors surrended Granada,their last stronghold, to the Catholic King, and were finally driven out of Spain.

In July of the same year, the persecution of the Jews began and of those whose allegiance to the King and Catholicism was in doubt.

Many changed their names, but as Marie Antoinette was suppose to have said "Let them eat cake," the King would ferret out the non believers by declaring in effect, "Let them eat pork."

Thus came about the tradition of hanging hams on their doors and under the eves all around their houses to show they were the good guys. Of course they no longer do that but "Jamon Iberico" can be seen hanging in many places like bars, butcher's shops and delis. In like manner, the bars always seem to serve their cooked tapas with chirzo, (Spanish sausage) and other pork products.

Below is the one of the types of holders that are found in most Spanish households:

The first time I heard that commercial I busted out laughing. I think a lot of people are using the term, you jackwagon now. I don’t know if they made that word up for the commercial or not, but I had never heard it before, but throwing the tissue’s at the guy was the best....:O)

Nice information there. I was curious on some of the reasoning behind it's use. When in Spain many years ago I was able to sample that style of ham. It is wonderful. Fortunately here in the states we have a form of cured pig that keeps me going and happy. Bacon.

I remember years ago, a liquor store hired some guy to dress up in Hamm’s Bear outfit and stand near the door without moving- like he was a display. Then, when a customer walked in, he’d suddenly reach out and welcome the guy. It scared the heck out of a lot of people.

I’m shocked DADT was repealed.

Did it not occur to someone in the RNC that pitting the Muslims against the Gay Mafia might not be a good idea?

It’s like visualizing legalized lesbian divorce - in California. Which one is Mom, and thus privileged under the ‘law’?

If you get Muzzies who refuse to serve along with gays, who caves. Christians? In the US, they have no standing. As long as we keep paying taxes, they won’t come after us to kill us all.
