Only slightly related in a twilite zoen sort of way, in Korea ham is a vegetable. Yes it is a vegetable. I have known many vegetarians (unnaturual beings that they are) and every single one of them has had ham with dishes that are specifically vegetarian.

Even when a Korean person orders for them and specifically says no meat the dish invariable comes with ham. Go figure...

When I lived briefly in southern Sweden, I was taought that the word 'fläsk' can mean both 'meat' and 'pork'. This doesn't appear to be borne out by the easiest-to-find online dictionary, though, so perhaps my hosts were having me on.
