“All of a sudden this ham… hit me full long in the face and ’bout knocked me cuckoo.”

–Celebrity cook and Food Network star Paula Deen, who was hit in the face by a ham today while volunteering at an Atlanta food drive. Deen, who was helping to unload 25,000 pounds of meat donated to a local food bank, was the honored guest at a recent “Fortune Most Powerful Women Evening With…” dinner in Atlanta, where she told the guests, “Ladies, I have got a revelation: Eat the cookies. And chase them with bacon.” (Click here for Pattie’s post about Deen and the career wisdom she served up at the event.) –Jessica Shambora
