“That’s a nice ham you got there…” (joke)

“Nice place you got here. Be a shame if anything happened to it” is gangster talk from at least the 1920s. The speaker wants to extort money from the establishment.

“That’s a nice ham you’ve got there. It’d be a shame if somebody put an ‘s’ at the front and an ‘e’ at the end” is a jocular variation that was posted on Reddit—Jokes on November 9, 2016. The “ham"/"shame" joke has been printed on several images.
