Rum Ham

noun; compounding
Rum ham refers to ham that has been soaked in rum. The purpose of rum ham is to eat your alcohol as opposed to drink it while enjoying the taste of ham simultaneously.

Etymology : Rum ham is a compound of the words used for the alcoholic beverage “rum” and the food “ham.” The word “rum” comes from a shortening of the word “rumbullion” from the 1650s which meant “liquor from sugar cane or molasses.” The word ham comes from the Old English word “hamm” which referred to the “hollow or bend of the knee.” This word was first used in the popular TV show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in the episode “Jersey Shore” which aired on September 22nd, 2011.
