The first known use of the ham cabinet was during the 1600's when Puritan woman would use them to carry wood, farm supplies, groceries, and personal belongings.
Husband: "Honey, have you seen my car keys and my briefcase?"
Wife: "Don't worry, they're right here in my ham cabinet."
Doctor 1: "Where's the disposal for the used gloves and the used needles?"
Doctor 2: "Due to recent cutbacks, we had to do away with the disposal programs, but you can use my ham cabinet."
