Clouet Gourmet Charcuterie

This demure sow is having a special moment. Yes, she lost a leg to the forces of butchery, but what a pittance to trade for fulfillment of such magnitude and dignity!

Not only has her left ham-bearing member been exalted as one of "the finest parts," but she gets to live and limp to see the day! It's like the dream of watching your own funeral to hear how your friends and family eulogize you. She discovers that they think she's splendid and distinctly edible!

As weird as we feel saying it, this is our sixth example of a peg-legged pig. (See another one here.) It just goes to show you: if an idea is horrible enough, more than one person will have it.

this is getting beyond a joke; these animals have the most perverted sense of humour.........which animals, you may well ask?

This makes me think how much better "Tom Sawyer" would have been if he, Huck, and Joe Harper had arrived just in time to learn that they were to supply their own funeral baked meats, am I right? THAT would have been a real knee-slapper (just before the knees were slapped into the BBQ sauce)!
