The pigs, of course, are the Walmart executives who fund this systematic torture, primarily because of the life-long confinement of squealers in gestation crates. Eff this vile industry. Forget about the taste of dead pigs altogether. Who eats pork anyway? I do but very guiltily. On rare occasions I’ll eat a couple of sausage links with a plate of scrambled eggs, and every now and then at a diner I’ll order blast-furnace, volcanic-ash bacon. And I feel like an idiot every time. Okay, I’m giving it up. Never again. Joaquin Phoenix was kind of bad in Inherent Vice but standing up for pigs is the right thing. Seriously.
