Chef Paula Deen accidentally hit by charity ham

Celebrity chef Paula Deen got an unexpected serving of ham - across her face. The Food Network star was helping unload 25,000 pounds of donated meat for an Atlanta food bank on Monday when someone threw one of the hams like a football and accidentally smacked her.

Deen tells WGCL-TV: "I thought it busted my lip, but it didn't." Though smiles and laughter, Deen added: "I'm OK. It just knocked me for a little bit."

She says she was unloading hams when she tossed one to a man, who then said "Back at 'ya." Thinking he meant it only as a sentiment, she turned around to get another ham when the errant
swine came at her. "He really meant, 'Back at 'ya."'

Later, she tweeted: "I haven't met the ham that could stop me yet!"
