  2. The News & Observer in Raleigh won the Pulitzer in 1995 for a series that covered most of the same ground. It was also called "Boss Hog." If you're interested, you can see the entire series at the Pulitzer site. Big ag (especially when it comes to meats) can be disgusting stuff.

    Sorry, but I loved the phrase, 'pigshit bayou."

    There's a sanitary reason for kosher laws. Pigs have been fed waste since Roman times.

    Having lived near both beef and pork processing facilities, I can report that the pig wins the El Disgusto competition hands-down.

    I read the first page and was too disgusted to read any more.

    I think I'll have a little bacon on my hamburger.

    Thanks for the temptation.

    JULES: I don't eat pork.

    VINCENT: Are you Jewish?

    JULES: I ain't Jewish man, I just don't dig on swine.

    VINCENT: Why not?

    JULES: They're filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.

    VINCENT: Sausages taste good. Pork chops taste good.

    JULES: A sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie. I'll never know 'cause even if it did, I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfucker. Pigs sleep and root in shit. That's a filthy animal. I don't wanna eat nothin' that ain't got enough sense to disregard its own feces.

    VINCENT: How about dogs? Dogs eat their own feces.

    JULES: I don't eat dog either.

    VINCENT: Yes, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?

    JULES: I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy, but they're definitely dirty. But a dog's got personality. And personality goes a long way.

    VINCENT: So by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he's cease to be a filthy animal?

    JULES: We'd have to be talkin' 'bout one motherfuckin' charmin' pig.

    Not really related, but my 12-year-old is a bit of a picky eater.

    A while back, in an effort to avoid eating something she didn't want, she proclaimed herself a vegetarian -- except for bacon, jerky and steak.

    We told her it was a noble life choice she was making.

    I grew up a county or so north of some serious pork and turkey processing areas. (I know that's a quote function waiting to happen ... see if most of you can behave).

    It's not a pleasant drive around those areas. :-X The odor trees needed to neutralize that would snap rearview mirrors off.
