I think that by default we think of the meat first and foremost. I recommend moving this to Ham. John Stephenson 22:07, 26 September 2007 (CDT)

Well, in principle I agree. But I've seen a gazillion articles at WP that have been moved around and back and forth and disambig. pages etc. I just thought it would be safer to do it this way, even if it appears to be overkill at the moment. Let's get some other opinions on this before anything is done.... Hayford Peirce 22:21, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
Yes, I doubt that many people will be looking for bad actors and biblical chimpanzees. Do we have a policy on disambiguation pages? Do we need them in all cases?--Martin Baldwin-Edwards 20:59, 27 September 2007 (CDT)
I dunno if there's a policy or not. It's true that sometimes the heading for one at the top of an article looks intrusive. On the other hand, the WP page for ham lists about a dozen more possibilities. I think it's wiser to err on the side of caution and keep it.

Wow! Makes me wish I lived in Europe! Hayford Peirce 19:13, 27 September 2007 (CDT)
The Spanish hams, I understand, are phenomenal.  —Stephen Ewen (Talk) 20:53, 27 September 2007 (CDT)
So I've been reading lately. In Tahiti I used to eat a lot of prosciutto and somewhat less Bayonne, which I never liked as much as the prosciutto. But I probably wasn't getting really top-grade Bayonne.
