Showdown at the USDA Corral

This is the latest article to catch my eye:

Restaurant owner beans meat thief with a ham

Mar. 16, 2008 11:59 AM, Associated Press

A meat thief is no match for an angry restaurant owner swinging a ham.

Joe Scola says he heard a noise in his Scola's Place restaurant in Gloucester, Mass., and saw a man trying to get away with his arms full of meat taken from the restaurant freezer.

Scola says that when he caught up with the man and started taking back his stock, the man raised a five-pound log of frozen Italian meat over his head as if to use it as a weapon.

The restaurant owner had a frozen ham in his hand and slammed it into the man's face, making a gash. The stunned thief dropped his loot and ran.

Police say they're haven't found the man responsible for the Wednesday confrontation.

Ed here again.

This totally ruins all of my future games of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Italian Meat Log, Frozen Ham." I don't know about you, but where I come from Italian Meat Log totally beats Frozen Ham.
