Ham For Hanukkah?

A store here in NYC was captured advertising "Boneless Spiral Ham" that's "Delicious for Chanukah." From the link (where there are pictures):

Instead of pointing out the mistake to management, Shapiro posted the snapshots on her blog to amuse others.

"I just thought it was funny," Shapiro, a self-described "unobservant Jew," told the newspaper. "I wasn't offended in any way. I just thought, here's somebody who knows nothing about what Jews eat."

On Tuesday, the first night of Hanukkah, the signs had apparently vanished.

A Balducci's official, who didn't want to speak on the record, told the Daily News that it was a mistake. The official pinned the blame on a stock clerk who normally doesn't work the meat department.

A stock clerk mistakenly made laminated product cards? Really? Shapiro has more pictures at her website.
