I was having dinner out with some friends at a Mexican restaurant yesterday, when we noticed an odd addition on the menu. One of the breakfast tacos had, next to it in bold print, "TRY IT WITH HAM!". Seemed odd to us. A little mor forward and punchy than is usually associated with breakfast tacos.

But then, we realized that the phrase really works in any circumstance, anywhere, and is especially useful in the workplace environment. For instance:

"I'm sorry your vehicle repair wasn't done to your satisfaction. If you'll bring it back to the dealership, I'll contact the Service Manager and they's TRY IT WITH HAM!"

"All right, I've corrected the billing on your insurance policy. Remember, next month you can pay by check, debit card, or TRY IT WITH HAM!"

"I've reset your password, so type in TRY IT WITH HAM!. Yes, it is case-sensitive."

Comment with how you can incorporate TRY IT WITH HAM! into your personal and work life!

It seems I missed this bit: Comment with how you can incorporate TRY IT WITH HAM! into your personal and work life!

Okay, "We're late setting up the store, the fixtures don't fit and half of them are missing in transit anyway; I suggest you TRY IT WITH HAM!"

This actually sounds fun.

This kind of allocation thrashing will inevitably cause severe fragmentation of the heap and result in measurable performance loss, so I think we should TRY IT WITH HAM!

While I can appreciate the aesthetics of using a bidirectional cyclical graph to represent your object model, search algorithms are order-N at best. We could always try adding an index or a secondary search tree, but I think it's time for a more radical approach. Let's TRY IT WITH HAM!

Great, now I'm going to have to re-watch The Lonely Island's "Like A Boss" and replace the title phrase with "TRY IT WITH HAM!"

OK, that data model isn't holding up to the end user's needs. Perhaps we should TRY IT WITH HAM and see if that resolves the issue.
