Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, celebrity chef Paula Deen was struck the face with a ham someone threw in her direction at a charity event.
Deen was helping unload a truck load of hams at Hosea Feed the Hungry & Homeless to make a Thanksgiving donation on behalf of Smithfield Foods.
This was all good until someone playfully threw a ham at a storage bucket and missed ... hitting the Food Network star on the head and nose.
HAMMING IT UP: Paula Deen was tagged by one.
Deen was "startled at first, but quickly regained focus and kept her humor," says her rep of what was the most flagrant abuse of meat since ... well, this video.
Adds Deen's rep, "She's totally okay and now is icing her face."
