Getting acquainted

biological pigs
Hi, we're Bert, Barry and Brian!
My cousin Hank is a butcher by trade. He's got his own pen. Usually he's got about three pigs in there, having a great life.

And when they're nice and fat, my cousin Hank takes them on a trip, and butchers them. And then the whole family eats them. And I tell my self that's quite okay. Because they enjoyed life.

I've always liked knowing who, and what I've got on my plate.

But this morning I got a surprising email!

Hello,
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are the future inhabitants of your freezer and belly. For the moment we're staying at Maple Lane. We would appreciate it if you dropped by.
kind regards, 
Bert, Barry and Brian 
Hmm, I'm not sure if I'll be able to enjoy my porc chops now. Obviously you cán get too personal with your meal.

  1. o_O I'm with you 'Too much information' !

    I remember telling my son (who at age 4 was concerned about the chicken on his plate) "Oh, don't worry darling, this is pretend chicken" - He saw right through my 'mummy fail' and was vegetarian by age 7, - mind you he grew out of it - he's now 29, and loves his bacon :)

    1. That makes me smile that he now loves his bacon! And I think you gave it a good shot!

  2. Oh my goodness, too funny. Just think about how delicious bacon is and it'll be okay :)

  3. Two summers my dad raised pigs for us to eat when I was growing up. I remember the first set was named Bo and Luke Duke. It didn't bother me to know them and then eat them at the time, but it might now. :)

    1. When you're kid you take things at face value. Sometimes it's a good thing not to think tóó much.

  4. Yeah, I think that's way too close for comfort. We were not meant to get to know our food... Actually, we were meant to go out hunting for it in the wild!! But hey, at least this way you know the animals had a nice life and then humanely butchered... So that's a plus.

    1. At least if I'm hunting them I don't see their face... I'll be sneaking up behind them.

      But you're right: I'll tell myself they had a nice life. Not every pig has that!

  5. That is very cute! I couldn't do it personally, I prefer to stay ignorant to these things. Especially when they look so cute and adorable! Bacon does taste gooooood though!
