Why We Should Eat Milkshake the Pig

Rather than continue to de-rail the Whole Hog thread, I decided to write a piece about this:

http://phillylawblog.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/why-we-should-eat-milkshake-the-pig/

There's a video in the thread that's a bit graphic.

I prefer to think of it as liberating the pig.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

I just wish there was a way to get some Milkshake in my chili on Sunday.

Guys, seriously? The Whole Hog event happens every year at Greensgrow and there's nothing in this year's invitation that says they are going to eat Milkshake...at least not that I saw. I'm all for knowing where our food comes from, but I just don't want to start rumors and get everyone in an uproar over nothing.

But that is what we do best. I still stand by my opinion that they will NOT eat Milkshake.

It's Jordan's fault.

I hope they eat him just for the shock value. They should make everyone pet him, and get a picture, and then ...mmmmmmm. :)

Well, if we don't eat Milkshake, I think we ought to.

I agree that the whole hog will likely not be milkshake. However, if it WAS going to be milkshake, would they tell everybody? I dont know.

That's my point. Would people eat Baconators if they had to look their dinner in the eye first?

Eating meat is a sacrifice. Something dies. It's unpleasant. And we forget that.

Sorry kat, I'm just in a lack of sleep kinda mood.

1. And He called to Moses, and the Lord spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying,
2. Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man from [among] you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice.

Hate to spoil the fun but I did ask this very same question last week while at Greensgrow. They will NOT be eating Milkshake. Milkshake is a potbelly pig and not so good to eat as they are mostly organs.

In that case let's grease him up and let him loose during the event.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

Oh honey. Why don't you go buy a nice regular pig, fatten him up, videotape his slaughter, then post it on your blog. That'll make you feel better! ;)

Hmmmmm... that is definitely not out of the question... :-P

One major requirement would be that sdm needs to take the head out drinking.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread.
And I'm not sure whether it was good or bad that I did.
