Paula Deen was hit in the face with a ham at a charity event. Paula Deen (for those of you not aware) is a chef with a show on The Food Network about Southern cooking. The ham is just a regular old ham that was in a box until someone accidentally threw it at Paula Deen at a Hosea Feed The Hungry And Homeless event.
Fortunately, Paula Deen is fine, and can even look back on the event with charmingly folksy colloquialisms.
From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Celebrity chef Paula Deen got more than she bargained for when she went to Hosea Feed the Hungry & Homeless to make a donation on behalf of Smithfield Foods.
As hams were being tossed down a relay line Monday morning, an eight-pounder whacked Deen in the face.
The errant ham “hit me full long in the face and ’bout knocked me cuckoo, but I’m fine,” a laughing Deen told WXIA-TV. She iced her nose to keep down the swelling.
