    Thank you Average Betty for hosting this contest. And THANK YOU Farmer John for this delicious ham. I am very happy to accept this into our home this Christmas. It will only fuel my internal struggle to understand why anyone would eat a ham this holiday season that didn’t come from Farmer John.

    Despite my snark for Paula Deen, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas. I also pray that my karma’s in check after this. I wouldn’t want to be hit in the face with a flying ham.

    My acceptance won’t be nearly as poetic as Rene’s… However, I must say I’m thrilled to among the winners of the Farmer John Holiday Ham Giveaway! Honestly, I would haiku for hams any day — thank you for the inspiration. What a great contest idea, and how exciting to win a delicious Farmer John ham! My holiday is complete :).

    Thank you, Farmer John and Average Betty!
