Where's The Beef? (186/365)

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

The Simpsons, Lisa the Vegetarian, 15 October 1995 (Season 7, Episode 5)

TIME:  3:25 PM
PLACE:  Lebanon Ave.
SUBJECT:  Old Neon Sign

This is part of a sign from a local meat processing plant.  I believe that the plant closed around the beginning of this year.  I have passed this sign more times than I can count and have always liked it, especially the meat graphic at the top.  I'm taking a poll, do you think that the graphic is a ham or a roast?  My vote goes for ham - even though it is a little red in the interior.  The round bone in the center and the cross-hatching signifies "ham" to me.  But, if you disagree, please tell me why.  Thanks!

I vote ham!

The criss-crosses make me think of ham and the shape of it.

It's a neat graphic. I agree - it's ham!

My first thought was ham!
