Would You Deny This Pig?

23 May


New low levels. This bucket contains fish guts. This pig is very cute, though, so don’t you want to feed him something his likes? I mean loves? Did you know pigs love fish guts?
Yup. Fishermen in Maine used to (probably still do?) feed their pigs the fish guts all summer, then corn for a few weeks before slaughter so they didn’t taste like, well, fish. I know the pigs like something because they’ll fight over it when I pour it into the slop trough. When I first poured a few fish guts found in Oakland’s Chinatown, they literally shrieked with delight. So William and I go out on fish-finding missions and get them want they really want. Oh, so gross, yet so cute, and later, so delicious.

    I meant to ask if you intended to slaughter your pigs. Now it’s all clear. I totally respect that, though I could never do it.

    Would the meat really taste of fish guts?

    Dang! I wish I could be there to help you dig through questionable dumpsters for questionable fish guts!
