Fancypants Ham Sells For 2 Million Bucks (Really)

When you think about the price of ham these days, you probably hover in at around 8 dollars a pound. Of course, if you are purchasing it right from the hog, the price tends to uptick a little bit. How much of an uptick? Oh, about two million bucks. That’s right. Somebody bought some pork for an absolute boarload of money.

Everywhere at the Kentucky Fair, a dry-cured country ham is auctioned off for an exorbitant price. This year’s 16-pound bevy of pig parts went for an astounding 2 million bucks. The pig in question wasn’t raised on a steady diet of diamonds; it was just your average ultra-delicious cured hog. So why did it go for so much? It was an auction to raise money for charity, although this year’s entrant beat the record by a full 1.5 million smackeroos.

In other news, white bread is still just a buck or two. Who wants to make a really ironic sandwich?
