"I ranned head on to a hog!"
My favorite Southern chef Paula Deen got an unexpected serving of ham — across her face. The Food Network star was helping unload 25,000 pounds of donated meat for an Atlanta food bank on Monday when someone threw one of the hams like a football and accidentally smacked her.
Though smiles and laughter, Deen added: "I'm OK. It just knocked me for a little bit. I ranned head on to a hog!"
She says she was unloading hams when she tossed one to a man, who then said "Back at 'ya." Thinking he meant it only as a sentiment, she turned around to get another ham when the idiot threw it back at her.
"He really meant, 'Back at 'ya.'"
Fortunately, the ham was a Smithfield.
