Slandering a Ham

So I googled my new team name, and found a newspaper article from


Daily Alta California, Volume 81, Number 56, 25 August 1889

SLANDERING A HAM.

Max Levy, a Butcher. Objects to Criticisms of his Wares

John Hammerschlag is a sort of self-constituted health officer, and as he is a butcher, ho is constantly on the alert for diseased meat. His penchant got him into trouble last night. Passing Max Levy's ham stand on the corner of Sixth and Folsom streets, he gave a sniff, remarking in a loud tone, " Those hams are rotten." Levy objected to having his hams slandered, and talked back to Hammerschlag. A crowd gathered around the excited pair, and finally a police officer appeared on the scene and arrested Hammerschlag, booking him far "vulgar language'* and "disturbing the peace." " It's a hard case,"' remarked Hammerschlag"'sorrowfully, as he was led to his cell,' "to arrest a man for saying a ham is rotten. It is the first time I've ever heard of a man being arrested tor using vulgar language to a ham.''
