Fancypants Ham Sells For 2 Million Bucks (Really)
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.
