Reader mail

Sometimes I get a questions here for the irregular “Reader Mail” feature in a form other than e-mail or comments. Because I obsessively dutifully check the log of Google searches that bring visitors to this blog, I know that some anonymous person came by wanting an answer to this question. And who am I to not help help out my loyal readers anonymous people on the Internet?

“When you butcher pig are there maggots on the inside?”

No. No, there aren’t. That would be absolutely disgusting and no one would ever eat pork.

Unless you are the younger sibling of, say, a 10-year-old boy, in which case the answer is a resounding yes, there are maggots inside pigs. Probably cows, too. And definately carrots and broccoli.

Also, anonymous younger sibling, you should probably believe everything else your wise older brother tells you, too.

  1. The only time I am mistrusting of something you have told me is when our father has told me the opposite. Because he makes stuff up even less than you, although I am always amazed at the depth and breadth of your knowledge.

  2. I think if there are maggots (as in fly larva) the pig is already dead. Your mother never makes stuff up.
