Talk about a ham-fisted move.
On Monday, celebrity chef Paula Deen was handing out free hams at a charity event in Atlanta when an overzealous person in line—who had just watched Deen throw a ham—decided to toss one back to her.
It hit her in the face.
She’s fine and laughing about the experience and getting great exposure from the mishap. For instance, I had never heard of Paula Deen until this morning, when I read that a ham hit her in the face.
And to the guy who threw the ham, welcome to your 15 minutes, sir.
Here’s the video (with a brief commercial before it, sorry), as you’ll notice Deen is just off-camera when it happens.
