The other night I popped into Great N.Y. Noodletown for a drunken late-night snack and did two things for the first time at this Cantonese roast meat emporium. The first was getting beef chow fun, an ordering misstep that was driven more out of nostalgia for my recently deceased father's favorite dish than any desire to wolf down a plate of noodles and beef bathed in slippery corn starch-based sauce. The second thing was use the ladies' room, where I spied the above bit of anti-porcine propaganda. Just who is this M. Hamm? A tagger who genuinely feels (however mistaken they may be) that swine kills? Or perhaps someone who really loves Noodletown's roast pork so much that they've stooped to a graffiti campaign to ensure that they get their share of succulent pig meat? The identity of M. Hamm will likely remain shrouded in mystery, but I would heartily advise my fellow eaters to ignore the anti-porcine message and heartily partake of Noodletown's roast pork.
