Well he definitely looks like a HAM




That Hamm sandwich is going to have its buns full of mayo soon. Lettuce relish in the tots that such a delicacy will be fed(erally) (im)pounded by some starving anti-“pig” felonious fellatio addicts. Sorry, you asked for jokes.

I’m drinking bleach now…

In the joint, Hamm can tell bad yolks to his fellow peeps because bad actors are called Hamms which are associated with eggs. Eggad, I think I got that one right. I’m walking on egg shells right now so I’d better quit.


As long as he ain’t a Ham radio operator…have at it Jeff.

How many hams do you think we may have on TAH?


Well, bye.


Caught red-hamded.

And Hamboned.

Green Thumb

Or Hammered (from behind).


A lot of veterans in that area they don’t take kindly to people faking the fink.


I’ll bet he don’t smoke….

Oh, he’ll be smokin’ soon enough, with enough friction……

Green Thumb

And a working a Phildo for his new man.


If he had actually joined, he’d of only had to do 2-6 years, depending on when and what!

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

With such outrageous claims, he was rather Hamm-handed about the whole SV scam thing.
I’m just as glad that all this is taking place in TX, instead of up further north. A lot of beer drinkers “in the land of sky blue waters” might get upset about his name.
He’s gonna be a Hamm & cheese (ewwwww!) sammach soon enough.
Get him in a prison pileup, with enough friction, he’ll be a smoked Hamm.
And the jokes just keep writing themselves……

I wonder if Bubba & Thor have popped his cherry yet?

I wonder if Hamm prefers:

1) a Slim Jim
2) a Vienna Sausage
3) a Kielbassa
4) a Knockworst
5) a Pork Banger

Maybe he likes Juicy Bananas?

The Underwood Corp is awaiting the latest issue of Prison Bride Weekly featuring this Ham. I’ll bet that the spread will be quite devilish.



It’s a shame…he has a decent beard so you’d think he wouldn’t be such a POS.
