In Jersey, Taylor pork is all the rage! And in order to keep the peace Governor Christie may need to step in and put a kibosh on the debate once and for all.

Police were called to an apartment in Hackettstown, New Jersey, this past weekend after an altercation broke out over a pilfered breakfast meal known as either a Taylor Ham Sandwich or Taylor Pork Roll.

Christian Guerra, 19 was taken into custody around 3:00 a.m. Saturday after repeatedly punching another man in the face causing significant swelling and bruising. It is believed that one of these men swiped the other's sandwich and possibly some beer.

This isn't the first time things have gotten heated over this product. In New Jersey Taylor Ham and it's breakfast rolls are a bit of a delicacy. 

A tumultuous public battle has been ongoing since anyone can remember. Residents of North Jersey call the popular breakfast item a Taylor ham but down South it's simply called pork rolls.  

Ham is no joke for Jersey folk. As you can see, some residents of the Garden State take this "disagreement" very, very personally.






It has gotten so contentious in 2016 that Gov. Chris Christie claimed to be considering issuing an executive order making 'Taylor ham' the sandwich's official name.

Saturday's victim is healing and Mr. Guerra was handcuffed for simple assault. Hopefully this incident has shined a light for progress in the war on... ham.  

How many more innocents will be ruined for this? Where does it end?
