Hominem is the plural of Hominy: a corn-based breakfast porridge associated with the Southern United States.

Therefore, ad hominem means, “Buy more grits, you cracker.”


oy ... pretty sure (AM will correct me) it's other way 'round.

'hominem' is Singular of 'hominy'

so it means, "Get A grit, cracker"
