Hammunition (ham + ammunition)

"Hammunition” (ham + ammunition) was the “Fake Word of the Day” on the blog Dougtionary in 2008, where it meant “food thrown in a food fight.” In 2013, the company Jihawg Ammunition sold bullets laced with a pork coating, pitching the advertising slogan, “Put some Ham in MoHAMed.” Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report popularized the word “hammunition” in a segment on September 19, 2013.

Ammunitions manufacturer selling pork-coated bullets to fight Muslims
Jihawg Ammunition, an Idaho-based company, is marketing their product with the slogan “Put some Ham in MoHAMed”

This article was originally published by The Southern Poverty Law Center.
The advertising pitch says it all: “Put some Ham in MoHAMed.”

Jihawg Ammunition, based in Dalton Gardens, Idaho, has recently begun selling bullets laced with a pork coating, promising “patriot” gun owners that the bullets “will strike fear into the hearts of those bent upon hate, violence and murder.”

Consumption of pork is forbidden in Islam. The idea behind the bullets is that a Muslim hit by them would be desecrated and unable to go to heaven.

This isn’t the first time Hatewatch has heard claims of pork-coated bullets from Muslim-bashing profiteers. In May 2011, we reported on a company called Silver Bullet Gun Oil, which said it had produced for sale a gun oil laced with pork fat.

Colbert also gives a Tip of the Hat to what he calls “hammunition”: ammunition that’s been laced with pork. Created by Idaho-based Jihawg Ammo, the idea is to make Muslim extremists “unclean” for heaven. Says Colbert: “Non-Halal bullets are the perfect way to send our enemy the message that we only hinted at when we killed then.” Go, watch:
