That's what came to mind when he was talking about breakfast and eggs.

How many more breakfast/eggs shots do I have lying around, really? The fact that it was someone that he might poke fun of was an added bonus.

Errrr

You're from Southern Jersey, mrfantasy, not Northern.

Though, really, what is ``from''?

I would just like to clarify, that I defined, "from" as where I am currently living. Three years ago I would have called that stuff canadian bacon.
I would also like to point out that I have never eaten it, but I promise I will before I move out of NJ.

ITS CALLED ROUND HAM DAMNIT

ROUND I TELL YOU

Re: ITS CALLED ROUND HAM DAMNIT

are you offened that I called it canadian, or that I called it bacon, or that I now call it taylor?

I think you are right though, round ham is probably the best name for the stuff, since, that's what it is.

One day we should grab the materials (pork roll, cheese, eggs, kaiser rolls, ketchup) and make some. Or get it from a diner.
kikibird From: kikibird Date: September 22nd, 2005 09:08 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I don't know if I am ready for that yet.
it would have to be after drinking pretty heavily, I think.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 22nd, 2005 10:28 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

That can be arranged

Diners and greasy foodstuffs are best while drunk.

I need to clarify that where I'm from, it's "Taylorhamncheese" - ordering "Taylor Ham" will get you a chunk of meat on a paper plate. This was not an option in your poll and I was left with no options to choose. Boo hoo.


In other news, I had no idea that "Pork Roll" was another name for the Proper Noun "Taylor Ham" (being named by a company called Taylor and being the Ham that that particular company makes). So, I spent all this time dating Russ being accused of being un-Jersey because we had no Pork Roll to the best of my knowledge. On top of that, I confused "Pork Roll" with the infamous Vineland "Pepperoni Roll", which just looked nasty. So I was proud that we had none of that stuff. Turns out, we do have it and it's not Pepperoni Roll (Thank god!)

So, now I say, nay, I am MORE Jersey because I know what it says on the packaging.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: September 22nd, 2005 03:09 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
We know it's officially named Taylor Ham in central Jersey. We just call it ``pork roll''.

I am glad that this did not get as violent as the sloppy joe discussion

Re: Also

FUCK YOU

IT'S PORK ROLL, NOT TAYLOR HAM!!!

IN THE CIVILIZED SECTION OF JERSEY, WE KNOW...

Yeah.

I think the big difference is that the Taylor Ham people can see it being called pork roll, and the pork rollers understand that it's Taylor brand ham. Unlike the Sloppy Joe thing, where it's two vastly different things sharing one name.
