What am I supposed to do with this?

  1. Nov 19, 2004 #1
    I went to pick up my paycheck today and my boss gave me a little "bonus" a $50 gift certificate to honey-baked hams. I'm a single guy. I live on double quarter pounders, carne asada burritos and anything served in a paper bag with the option to super size.
    a $50 ham? how long would it take to eat that? using nothing but sporks as utensils?

    Buy a bunch of little hams and asked them to be placed in brown paper bags?

    I LOVE HAM. :approve:

    You can get them to spiral cut it. That would be easier for you to carve off the bone with a spork. :approve: I hope you like ham sandwiches. Or invite a bunch of friends over...you do have friends, don't you? :wink: Or, if you really don't want that much ham, how about donating it to a homeless shelter or food bank?

    are little hams like veal?
    I didn't even know there was a store named "Honey-Baked Hams"
    Really sort of limits your inventory choices doesn't it and I thought the Dollar Stores were a bit specific.

    I thought I did, until that comment.

    lol, I thought you said donate it. actually give it away. You really bought into that "sensitive" tribdog didn't you. donate it? I might make a couple of bums wrestle for the bone to chew on. maybe some shopping cart races for a bite.

    yes, quit rubbing it in. I get it. You love hamanino. geez. Maybe I'll just climb back into bed, remember the days when you were so nice, and eat my ham.

    Don't make me have to hug you again! :rofl:


    Easy, down boy! You don't HAVE to donate it, it was just a suggestion if you were just going to waste it. But, a ham has to be better than some super-sized combo meal.

    Okay, this is a dumb question, but although I seem to be one up on you to know there's a such place as a Honey Baked Ham store, I have never actually considered walking into one. Do they have ANYTHING other than ham? I mean, is it just the name of the store, or do they really only sell ham? Maybe you can get a small ham and some other stuff to go with it?

    EDIT: I just looked up their website...they have LOTS of pre-cooked food. It looks like heaven for a single guy! You can get beef, turkey, fruit, and pies. If it's too much food for you, you can invite me over! I'll definitely help with that feast! :approve:

    The only meat I eat is from animals that died of old age, peacefully, in their sleep, after a long happy life. :approve:

    :devil: I "knew" it was just a ploy. :devil:

    yeah, a small ham and maybe a side of ham with some of those little hams maybe a ham for dessert.
    I wonder if they have any pork.

    Yikes! I just looked at the prices on that site! You'll be lucky to get a pie for under $50. That gift certificate won't buy you much there, don't get your mouth watering too much. They have hams for over $100!!!! For that, I want the whole pig!

    I knew my boss was a cheapskate. Probably has stock in HBH.
    I invite everyone over for dinner, then go to the store and have to shell out an additional weeks pay, and boom his stock goes up 3 points. I could probably get a little ham, use it to bait those homeless we were talking about earlier and we could roast them.

    You have a way of bringing out the worst in me. I know I shouldn't laugh at that last comment, but I did anyway, a little too hard, and now I can't stop. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    that's weird. Its usually my putting something in, not bringing it out that causes that "don't stop" or "can't stop" reaction.
