Hamming it up for Christmas

Hamming it up for Christmas

It wasn't just the Chardonnay
(So cool and crisp and dry)
That prompted all the compliments
For last night's pork stir-fry.

The marinade, the crunchy veg
'Mmm' said the writer's fella
Praise given for the gift of his
own resident Nigella.

The fire was glowing, just like me,
The News came on the telly
The wondrous mouth of Ann announced
Eat pork? Not on your Nelly!

Our pate, spam and Christmas ham
Have all gone in the bin
We're told there is an outside chance
Of poisoning - diox in.

It's formula has double ox
Quartets of H and C
If I remember rightly
It scarred Yushenko V.

So dump it all or bring it back
To your local super store
They sold you something in a poke
What you asked for, only more.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

Avoid the ham, avoid the pork,
they'll only bring you torment.
Resist the lure of the Irish fry
even in your rasher moments!

You should send your offering to the Irish Times damellon - the old lady would be most impressed.
It's great!

How terrible D, poisoned like Mr Yushchenko.

Another reason to become vegetarian.

Oh, no! No Christmas ham?

What an announcement to hear right after a big helping of pork.
Thanks for the smile, I wish I could send you a ham.

Aww! Cute and funny.
You could always go for Tofurkey.

We're doing lasagna. A red one, a green one and a white one. The white one is a seafood lasagna that is just tdf. yum yum yum.
