Well, this woman went to the butcher shop to get some ham for dinner.
She asked the butcher what kind of ham he recommended, and the butcher said,
"Well ma'am, we got some Damn ham here for $3.50 a pound..." Needless to
say, she was surprised at the butcher's language! The butcher, who was
reasonably astute, noticed the alarmed look on the woman's face, and quickly
justified himself. "No, no, ma'am, I wasn't cursin', the NAME of this here
ham is "Damn ham". Amused, the woman requested some "Damn ham."
That night, before dinner, the woman took her husband aside and
explained what had happened at the butcher shop. He also was amused, and
suggested that they play a joke on their son. So, at dinner, after grace,
the man turned to his wife and said, "Honey, pass the damn ham."
Their son looked up, surprised. "WHOAH! Dad be gettin' hip!
How 'bout them mother-fuckin' potatoes?"
