  6. This could be the ultimate aim of the islamotards - the only place you can see ham is a museum.  A Museum of Horrors!

  9. I’ve been there, what a cool shop! And I don’t even eat the stuff!

    And it’s in Spain…

    Sorry, is my wistfulness showing again?

  10. There’s a slice of cheap ham frying himself on the PPP thread.

  13. Thank God for Jamon.
    Lived on it in New Caledonia. My Grandma travelled the world and lived on Ham Sandwiches in every country she visited!

  14. Mmmmmm bacon. Delicious and historical.

  15. The 2008 Moros y Christianos festival is set for April 21-24 in Spain.

    Lots of jambon hangs around, also many photos of it.

    It works like mossie repellent here. (Did I spell mozzie? Sorry, make that a u.)

    Yeah sure is…Now, he could give me a shot at it. I wouldn’t, miss, that is…:).

  22. #21 El Cid,

    I have no doubt your aim would be true.

  23. El Cid,

    that moron was on Letterman a couple of weeks back, and when Letterman asked him why he liked Chavez,
    the moron answered,“the fact that Chavez hates Bush was enough of a recommendation for him”.

    He and others of his ilk are extremely lucky to have been born in a country, that allows them to live…not just IN the country, but to live, period.

  25. El Cid,

    As Ayan Hirsi Ali said to that dickhead in Canada,

    “you were born in freedom, that’s why you can spit on freedom”.

  26. I love pig. Surprised, though, that the Musselmen haven’t complained.

    On his world tour of gastronomical delights, Mr. Herbert might want to drop by this place and do some research. Frankly, I’d love to be the curator of either museum.

  28. Any country that has a museum devoted to ham is alright by me.

  29. O/T, but too good not to link. Friend and commenter Captain Heinrichs sent me this.

    And Powerline has the latest exhibition of Dennis Kucinich casting spells. His motivation? Maybe just because he’s a left-wing moron. Or maybe that red-headed specimen of feminine pulchritude he’s married to promised him something “special” if he’d man-up and diss Cheney (“Look, honey! I’ve got some new ♪ manacles ♪ !!”).

  30. #29 The lack of legislative responsibility and flagrant disregard for providing the services they were hired to perform is what SHOULD be brought forward at these clowns’ dismissal hearings.  Kick them to the curb and garnish their wages at whatever Walmart they’re fortunate enough to find employment.  With these string of ridiculous bills, proposals and accusations, I’d be shocked if it turns out that any of them actually meet the minimum requirements to even work at Walmart (let alone Congress).

  31. On my honeymoon, we stayed in a hotel about a block from there. 

    GREAT place.

  32. I’ve also been to the Museo del Jamon, which is a truly awesome place, but you have to understand that Madrid is full of these little ham shops, each one featuring ceilings festooned with these huge ham hocks hanging there like edible stalctites. I love the little upside-down umbrella stuck in the bottom that’s meant to collect drippings, and the sight of someone walking down the street with one of these huge cuts slung over their shoulder, provisioned for a family feast. There are a lot of things I love about Spain, and the ham definitely makes the top ten.

  33. I first read that as “Madam Celebrated,” thinking of some hot prostitutes set forth by an honest matron.

    Imagine my dissapointment when it was just more fatback.

  34. If God didn’t mean for us to eat ham, he wouldn’t have invented pigs.

  35. Who can forget that classic of Spanish arthouse filth, Jamón, jamón:

    In Spanish, the word “jamon” not only means “ham” but also “a dish of a woman”.

  36. Hey, that’s one of Christianity’s Most Sacred Sites!!! No photography allowed!  Behead those who disrespect swineflesh!

    Where’s the nearest street protest?  You’ll be seeing me shortly as Christian Rage Boy.
