Paula Deen Hit With Ham at Atlanta Food Drive

This is just kind of laugh-out-loud good. Food Network star Paul Deen got smacked in the face with a ham while volunteering at a food drive in Atlanta. Deen was helping to unload thousands of pounds of meat for an Atlanta food bank when she unexpectedly got one of the donated hams right in the kisser.

“I thought it busted my lip, but it didn’t,” Paula Deen said later in an interview with WGCL-TV. “I’m OK. It just knocked me for a little bit.”

The ham-cock happened after Deen threw the ham to another volunteer and he jokingly tossed it back to her. Except she wasn’t paying attention and got the ham in the face. “I thought he was going to pass it down the line,” Deen said, “but all of a sudden this ham… hit me full long in the face and ’bout knocked me cuckoo.”

Deen posted to her Twitter feed later that she hasn’t “met the ham that could stop me yet!”

Bravo for the sense of humor, Paul Deen, and glad you didn’t end up with any hammy scars. It was pretty damn funny though.
