(Newser) – Paula Deen is fine and even joking about the size of the ham that whacked her in the face during a charity appearance today in Atlanta. The Food Network phenom was helping deliver donated meat when a relay toss went astray. "All of a sudden this ham that weighed 200 pounds hit me full long in the face and 'bout knocked me cuckoo," a cheerful Deen, who admitted the ham was closer to 8 pounds, told WXIA.
