I remember seeing a list on here a while back that had all these album titles with words taken out of them and replaced with "ham". that's what this reminds me of.

and yeh, Balls currently has the best avatar on this site.

I remember that list, and the album titles all actually had "ham" somewhere in them but in the list
the album title was all lowercase but the part that said "ham" was in all caps so that all the albums
still had the art. It was awesome
