Jambon


45 comments:

  1. Is that hunk of pleasure cured?

    If not, you may be inducing trichinosis anxiety in O Docker, unless his objection (more probably) was to the snobbish french moniker?

    Is a pig just a pig?

    Ask your friend at the pizzeria in Italy... shut up!!

  2. J'ai voudrais le jambon avec le fromage. Now you're talking.

  3. Our Gallic friends certainly know how to live life to the fullest.

    They make a marvellous dish of alternating slices of this jambon and Sandscraper's fromage, lightly drizzled with moutarde and wrapped in a crusty baguette. Sheer genius!

  4. A ham and cheese hoagie with mustard, O Docker?
    Can I get a can of Charles Chips on the side?

  5. I am imagining O Docker, back in Philly, ordering un jambon et fromage hoagie at his favorite local spot...

    After a beating by the proprietor and the patrons on premises, he dusts himself off and responds...

    well then, how about a croque-monsieur?

  6. Mojo, nobody gets a beating in Philadelphia unless they're wearing a New York sports jersey.

  7. It's all a crock, monsieur - this Frenchifying of our French fries, this gallification of our gastronomy.

    What gall to insist that all derives from Gaul.

    Let's call a ham a ham, ahem.

  11. How about three hams?

  12. Thomas Jefferson told us, "Having a ham every now and then is a good thing."

  13. If you don't have a ham and you are not rich, blame yourself!

  14. It is three hams that when I get there that are gone - Prosciutto, Serrano, and -- what's the third one there? Let's see.

    Oops!

  15. Of course hams are not people. Who would say such an outlandish thing?

    ReplyDelete
  16. There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that things happened in my life with hams that were not appropriate.

  17. How many people here are going to use ham if it were legal? I bet nobody! "Oh yeah, I need the government to take care of me. I don't want to use ham, so I need these laws!"

    ReplyDelete
  18. "O beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain." Well, ham could be an amber wave, right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I tried ham a couple times, but I did not inhale.

  20. Rarely is the question asked, is our children eating ham?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can see ham from my house.

  22. You know that old Beach Boys song, Jambon is Ham? Jambon jambon jambon, jambon jambon is ham.

    Q. What's the difference between West Ham and a teabag?
    A. A teabag stays in the cup longer.

  24. This Christmas, we're mounting cameras inside the oven and people who have never watched ham baking before will be able to see what makes cooking so exciting.

    Of course, that means I'll be able to sell ad space right on the ham.

  25. I pink, therefore I ham.

  26. Who was that famous American who said, "a ham in every pot"?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think that was Hambert Hoover.

    ReplyDelete
  28. A ham has always gone a long way in my house, and this is no exception.

    ReplyDelete
  29. "I pink, therefore I am" is the fundamental premise that underlies the life work of 17th century French mathematician and philosopher René à la Carte.

  30. Je m'offusque à votre remarque, ô Docker, et vous mettre au défi d'un duel, vous porcine américaine, euh jambon!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Let cooler heads prevail!

    Where's Joe when you need him? My husband tells me that bourbon goes quite well with ham, er jambon.

    BTW, this job is BORING...

    "A ham and cheese sandwich on one slice of bread is the responsibility of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which inspects manufacturers daily. But a ham and cheese sandwich on two slices of bread is the responsibility of the Food and Drug Administration, which inspects manufacturers about once every five years."

  33. I watched the Jambon Cru the other day, the coxswain kept yelling "stroke, stroke" and by God one of them had a stroke.

  34. René, no one puts a circonflexe on my O without suffering the consequnces!

    I accept your challenge.

    We meet tomorrow, at dawn, on the Cartesian Plain.

    But my trusty épée is in the shop this weekend, so I will borrow a quill pen from my mom's sister to defend myself.

    La plume de ma tante est sur la table!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I thought the circonflexe was the parents' decision......

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes, Baydog, but the pain is acute.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Pain is acute? Are we talking about Tweezerman's sticky buns? That was grave.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ha! Nehmen Sie dieses oomlat O Docker, Sie Schwarzwälder Schinken! Muss ich dafür, dass Ihr "Schwert" in der Werkstatt ist?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I do not like
    Green eggs and ham.
    I do not like then
    Sam-I-am.

  40. I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant's faithful one-hundred percent...

    ... is that a jambon et fromage omlette that i smell??

    See Ya! ... (publisher's note: readers avert your eyes)

  41. Apologies for the poor German translation.

    If you used our translator, what Goethe meant to say in English was:

    "Ha! Take this oomlat O Docker, you Black Forest ham! Do I care if your "sword" is in the shop"??

    ReplyDelete
  42. Mr. Google, my smattering of German was enough to get most of Mr. Goethe's comment, but I can't figure out if he was offering a Schinken und Käse oomlat or an Umlaut.

    The less said about my Schwert, the better.

    I think I'm going to bed now.

  43. Öops!

    What I had for dinner last night gave me dieresis.
