Cooee. Phoenix I have my swear box ready.
Is it time to start cursing the gammon yet?

There was a thread the other day about ham Doodle.
Apparently gammon is an offensive word now (don't know why).
I did ask where phoenix was with the gammon but no response as yet.

People cannot just take a word like gammon, use it, in their view only, offensively and other people take offence and say it is non-pc!

It's a gammon - needing to be cooked.
Ham is different - it is already cooked.

So I will buy gammon.
And cook it.
Rant over

Now, where's phoenix?

I have four gammons ready to be cooked. One for us and the others for the AC in the U.K.

Even more reason to curse it perhaps

Is that why gammon is cursed, because it’s become offensive?
granygravy, 4 gammons! Must be a lot of cursing in your house tchgrin

I cursed when I did mine in the slow cooker!

It turned into 'pulled gammon' all by itself.
