The Hangover Ham by Lyle Rosdahl

The ham he had laid out the night before was gone. He had been on a bender and always craved ham the day after, typically a Sunday, because it soothed his salty, snaggletooth. At least he blamed it on the snaggletooth, front right incisor (#8). On the TV, a commercial, Gum for Your Bum, played over and over (a putty like substance inserted between the buttocks and “chewed” throughout the day — ‘only a week to a firmer gluteous maximus’) and his wife wanted to know loudly where the ham was. She moved gently up and down on the chair.
