I believe this particular pass play is called the Ham Mary.
During a charity event yesterday in which celebrity chef Paula Deen was helping to unload 25,000 pounds of meat at an Atlanta food bank, one of the workers needed a football break. He threw a ham to her. Actually, at her. He hit Deen in the face.
"I thought it busted my lip, but it didn't," she said.
Though smiles and laughter, Deen added: "I'm OK. It just knocked me for a little bit."
She says she was unloading hams when she tossed one to a man, who then said "Back at 'ya." Thinking he meant it only as a sentiment, she turned around to get another ham when the errant swine came at her. "He really meant, 'Back at 'ya."'
Later, she tweeted: "I haven't met the ham that could stop me yet!"
There is, of course, video ...
