Oy to the World! Hams for Hanukkah

People who know anything about Jewish dietary regulations also know that ham, pork, bacon and any other post-oink meat just isn't permitted.

This week, however, a gourmet grocery store in New York City hit the mother lode of ill-advised advertising. Balducci's grocery store in Greenwich village advertised a special on boneless hams as "Delicious for Chanukah" (Chanukah is an alternate spelling for Hanukkah).

The manager of Balducci's understandably feels like a real schlemiel and was not answering questions. The ham sale has been discontinued.

Next sale could be: Leavened Bread Delicious for Passover (see next post)
