Grilled Ham

Sssssssssss [sound of sizzling ham]


I'll throw another one on the grill if you're hungry.


Pass the A-1 steak sauce. [nose twitches]


I've heard of 'pressed ham' and 'canned ham' before, but THIS is ridiculous, Melissa M.
P.S., it's not staged, those hams crawled up thar like that!

I want to nom those little feets! This is all too redonk, I can't stop laughing.

I don't get it. What am I seeing? Did the owner squash them this way for a photo op?

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:24 PM


Can someone 'splainy to me what exactly I'm looking at? What is that blue thing?

And is it wrong that I want to nom on their noses?

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:27 PM

This borders on cruelty. You really shouldn't be encouraging more of this by posting this.

oh no curious, they do that all the time.. showing off that they're spineless :)

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:35 PM

Hahahahahaha *snorts*
The first pic is hilarious, but that 2nd one w/ the 2 of them is just pushing it to laughing hysterics!! That is just too much!!!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:37 PM

My hammy skippy used to do that too...-- it's two hamsters squished up behind their wheel, probably taking a nap. i'm sure the owner didn't put them there, hammys don't like being squished into places.
what's even funnier is how they manage to get themselves into that position... :P

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:38 PM

There's no way that the owner could have put them there and have them stay still long enough for a picture. Anyone who has every owned a hamster knows this. If they were forced into that space, they would be squirming all over the place. The look relaxed in the picture, and I'm positive they are napping.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:43 PM

Hey, one more and it's connect four!!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Er...two more.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 12:46 PM

When I was younger I had a hammy that did the same thing. Actually he seemd to like to find places to squish himself into for naps, he rarely napped in any 'normal' spots. Their bodies are made to squish into odd places and mine seemed to get a lot of joy out of doing just that.

Alright, I'm calling off the angry mob.

Villagers, put down your pitchforks.

Chanpon, there are three kinds of people in the world. Those who are good at math and those who aren't.

Ok, so that blue thing is the back of the wheel! Thanks for clearing that up, stronggrace. I've never see the back of one of those things and thought it looked like some weird propeller thingy.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:10 PM

ahahaha is this the hammy equivalent of cats that squarsh themselves into tiny lil boxes? So cute. They look all comfy, weird as that sounds.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:12 PM

I'm impressed the photographer had the willpower to get his or her camera. I would have tickled those little feets and woken them up!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:12 PM

Get your tow fer the price of one Ham steaks, Grilled to perfection just waiting for a mustard slathered hunk of bread! Don't forget the swiss cheese and lettuce and tomato

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:12 PM

I'm afraid you'll need to coral us with more than that!

BURN THE WITCH! *rabble rabble*

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:13 PM

Hamsters love squishy places because it makes them feel safe and protected XD
These pics made me laugh, haha.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:14 PM

eh? Points finger at Brown girl --->

I bet Andrew Zimmern had these before!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:18 PM

lol! Oh, how precious are they?! Hahaha, that's so funny and cute and hilariously cute!! Oh my gosh, this picture makes me happy.

They're so silly! I want to kiss their little extremities. lol

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:27 PM

My friend's hamster died like that... he was on the wheel and must have slipped between the wheel and cage and died... she found him in a similar position when she came home. So I don't think this is funny... But that's jsut cause of accidents that CAN happen this way

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:33 PM

I just wanna know why?

Why hammies?

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:53 PM

milly- yeah, they can. but a hammy's gonna do what a hally's gonna do, and usually it comes out ok, luckily.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 01:54 PM

thanks for the downer, milly. geez.

silly hammies!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 02:06 PM

Milly, it is possible that your friend's hammie was taking a nap behind the wheel and died in it's sleep. My daughter's hamster was curled up in her nappy corner and never woke up. At least she died peacefully. Hammies are good at getting themselves out of tight spots.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 02:14 PM

haha my hammyhams used to do this on the top of her wheel, and just lay there all crammed in and uncomftabuls-looking. so sillies!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 02:16 PM

Annie-MUSTARD?? Who puts mustard on a hammy sammich? What you want is a nice cranberry chutney!

Agree, Michelle. These hams need their version of boxhab-is it grill-ham, or ham-grill? Either way, it will be mistaken for an edible delight. Grillhab, grillham, wheelhab. That's it, wheelhab-can cover front of wheel or back. Nah, wheelhab should be for those hams who run all the time. Grillhab is for this situation pictured.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 03:12 PM

If they can gets they little heads in, the rest of they bodies will follow.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 03:28 PM

I had a hamster who loved to do this. One day she accidentally suffocated herself :( So I would watch to make sure your hamsters are okay and possibly even discourage it.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 03:30 PM

I finally made the first comment, I didn't even say "bleen" and I still got edited out - AND it's my birthday. That's cold Theo. Cold. Please excuse me while I go pout (a bowl of pudding to appease me would go a long way - I'm just sayin')

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 04:19 PM

I had a hamster who did this. Eventually he got too big for it and didn't realize it, and he got stuck. I had to take the wheel off and get him out. :)

What a perfect opportunity to nom on the little pink feetsies!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 05:24 PM

@cheesybird - LOL! In my defense, the hammie on the bottom is a little ..um... "wide". I seriously thought he was two hammies until I counted the feet sticking out.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 05:28 PM

my two hamsters do this, too! the way they sleep is so adorable, you gotta love hammies :)

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 06:57 PM

This makes me cry.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 08:20 PM

Jesus frappacino christ peoples, use your common sense and read some posts before you assume this truly is a cruel grilled ham'n'cheese contraption. GAWD.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 08:46 PM

I just would want to tickle the little peenk toesies and nosies!!!

What, you mean you've never taken a nap underneath your car before?

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 09:14 PM

I know that Cage! That's the hammie space station! Easiest cage in the world to clean! er - sorry, anyway - I had a full sized ham who used to do the exact same thing - in that exact same type of cage behind that exact same kind of wheel. I thought she was dead the first time I found her like that but nope - just happy and smooshed. Eventually she did it so often the wheel fell off its spoke. She'd gotten a little... er, 'fluffy' by then.

cheesybird = best comment ever!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 09:33 PM

Yum! All I need is some ketchup please...

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 10:06 PM

Ham sammich!



::pokes ham bellies::

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 10:53 PM

O_o okay... how the heck did they get in that position? Im confused. they look comfortable but yet they look to squished.. they are so adorable from that view though, my hammy was lying on his back while he was sleep today and was kicking his little feet in the air, so cute!

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 11:00 PM

My gerbils were always finding redonkulous positions to squish themselves. They'd squish themselves three across a plastic pipe to nap and cause traffic jams. Them thar critters have jello bones.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 11:04 PM

seems like hammy's are like kittens, love to sleep in tiny places.:)
I can't stop wondering???
How the h*** do they extract themselves out of there.
" pardon me" " excuse me " "ouch" " easy there will ya"

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 11:45 PM

When my kitties are lying next to metal or tile, my immediate reaction is to turn up the A/C.

 |  Jul 20, 2008 at 11:54 PM

Turn us over. We're done on this side.

 |  Jul 21, 2008 at 04:43 AM

OMG! I just want to ticky those little feeties!
