Speaking of cuts of meat, here is another in an ongoing series of images of self-cannibalizing pigs. Thanks to Angela in Alaska for this creepy "ham," which perhaps brings the pork and the pig too close together. Perhaps that's not a bad thing, however, since English is the language that has separated the meat from the animal, a process that dates back to the Norman invasion, interestingly enough. These days the distancing obviously goes way beyond the linguistic, as very few Americans ever see a live pig anymore.
