Pig in a pork.


Blogger is acting all polly pissy pants today so I'm not even sure if this will post but here goes...


ANGRY viewers have complained to telly watchdogs after Chef Gordon Ramsay killed off his pet pigs.

Four million watched Gordon, 39, take the two porkers to the abattoir on his Channel 4 show The F Word.

The pigs, called Trinny and Susannah, were seen having their throats slit then being disembowelled.

Even the hard-nosed chef looked horrified as he watched, saying: “F***k, I’m going to get the hell out of here ... f***ing hell.” Outside he admitted: “I felt sick as a dog in there. Not pleasant.”

No, not pleasant, but this is how animals like pigs are killed in abattoirs. Not very nice to watch, but as I"ve said before, people should know where their food comes from. Remember when Jamies Oliver killed that lamb and cooked it, and everyone was all 'oh my god!' Well folks, roast lamb is delicious ( so it slow roast pork in a honey glaze with crackling) and I would sooner eat that than a frozen pizza or a breaded something or other from the freezer any day of the week.
A generation of kids now are growing up with no concept that the food on their plate-if they're lucky- comes from actual living things. KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, while not exactly what I would call food, have all over the last few years started phasing out the actual names of the animals they use in their product. Thus Whoppers and Grillers have replaced burgers and Twisty and Snackers exist where chicken used to be. Why? Because if you take away the association you strip away the guilt.
I remember going to the butcher as a kid and he would have great big sides of beef hanging behind him on hooks, he made the sausages right then and there and ground up meat for mince. There were sheep skin rugs for sale and huge chunks of pork that he would slice for rashers. There were real eggs on the counter and the chickens were large, yellow! Yes yellow, chicken shouldn't look pale pink- and in most cases still had their heads and feet on, which I would chop with glee when I went home and chase my younger brother about with. Everything was fresh and it tasted absolutely wonderful.
Nowadays everything is shrink wrapped, plastic, uniform in size and half the flavour. Is this food? Sort of, but is it good food... Dunno. Don't really think so.
So yes, people are annoyed/upset/outraged that Gordan's pigs got the chop, perhaps they thought pigs died of old age and then we ate them. Maybe they thought Gordan-a chef- might retire them to the Cotswolds someday. But he didn't, he grew them, fed them, slaughtered them and I would imagine he will make something very delicious out of them. And I think it was quite right of him to go along and watch. More people need to do so. Then they might appreciate what an animal goes through for us to have a bacon sandwich (with lashing of white pepper). It is up to each of us to decide if we eat meat or not. I do, but I don't try and pretend it is anything other than what it is, so no faux outrage here. If someone watched Gordan's show last night and said, 'I am going to be a vegetarian from this day forward' I would respect that too. But don't express horror or shock and then carry on scoffing meat. At least don't express it to me. Especially when I"m eating. I'll tell you to bugger off.

Yeah, it's like people who eat meat yet say things like 'oh no, I couldn't eat veal, the poor little things, veal is different'...hmmmm yet the chicken you're scoffing there loved being killed did it?

I eat meat. Meat is dead animals. I know this. If the day comes that I no longer want to eat meat or I feel animals shouldn't be killed for meat, then I will become a vegetarian.

Until that day, it's meat meat meat all the way.

Mmmmmm meat!

I grew up on a farm, and me and my two cousins got a pet pig from the neighbouring farmer (because for some reason the little piglet wouldn't grow so it was either us or death). We played with him all summer and we loved him dearly. But, then my dad started giving him cow's milk, and.. whooha, all of a sudden he started growing..and growing..and growing..

You can see where is going?

Yep. Christmas came.

I won't spell it out, and yeah it wasn't great at the time, but it was something completely natural. Nature's way and all that.. I also used to go hunting hares with my dad, he taught me to shoot and I have no lasting trauma of it (plenty of other traumas, but not from this).

May I add that my dad was an animal lover and I was taught to respect and treat all animals well - I too love animals and become a raving lunatic when I hear of any animal abuse.

Killing a animal to eat it has nothing to do with that. But all my friends who hear this story are horrified..

FMC how's Puddy doing? I too had a cat for 15 years who was the biggest love of my life (so far).

Thank for asking Eva, she's doing rather well considering, eating up and storm and snoozing. I'll post a photo of her later on, you can see for yourself.

Yes please do!
I know how hard it is when they get ill and eventually pass away, but I took comfort in knowing that my Gaston had the best life a cat could have wished for - and from what I can make out from you Puddy-story, she too has an excellent time over the years ;)

The strangest part was the abatoir staff. What sort of freak does that job?

Although many people are afraid to eat pig frequently, i must to say this meat is really delicous and don´t have any comparion because the taste is extraordinary and we can cook it in any activities or meeting. Or even in a romantic dinner, if you are thinking to prepare a dinner for your husband or boyfriend.
