    Lorenz Gude,

    Don’t know if you are aware of this but in Israel one can buy a sort of ham made from Turkey at the Cold Cuts counter. They call it Shenkin(Ham) Hodu(Turkey).

  5. E.G. says:

    Turkey is an Israeli ally.
    Won’t find ham there, though.

    Any Balducci beheading posters yet?

    A few decades ago, roughly, a psychologist published a paper on “Humour as a Neurotic Response to Stress.”
