Atrocity Exhibition ( Half pig man )
c. Michael St,Mark 2011
The stallholder, it emerges after a brief exchange, keeps his very own local organic pig farm. His proud boast “my pigs enjoy a happy life outdoors ” impresses, then at his invitation to “try some rashers?” , we mention thanks-but-no-thanks, we’re vegetarian.
” So are my pigs”.. he sneers through an evil smirk

Ugh!—-that’s all i can say to the thought of eating trotters Christine. When i was young my mother would insist that we had to eat liver and my sister and i hated it, we would put it in our pockets when our Mum was out of the room and dispose of it on the way back to school! :))
Used to be classed as a rare delicacy at the Tudor court of good King Henry apparently…supping lumpy Scrumpy from hollowed-out pigs’ trotters.
More ale, wench! :))
I suppose he thinks hes “trotters” traders.
im a veggie…so its rather disgusting
I was toying with ” Atrottercy exhibition” title variation but then thought it’s too serious an issue to be belittling further our close evolutionary cousins.
when I was little I forced to eat trotters! (ugghhh!)
my dad would say starving children would be glad of those trotters,
I used to say give them to them then….
I had to bribe my brother to get them off my plate in a tea towel…
So this guy thinks his pigs are happier because they are allowed to roam free outdoors?——i wonder how he knows this, how can he tell they are happier?
They still end up in the same place as other pigs though and this is at the Travelodge of the animal world, otherwise known as the abattoir!
The expression on the mans face, in the photo, says it all really.
Big man, pig man
Ha haa, charade you are… YOU
well-heeled big wheel
Ha haa, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You’re nearly a good laugh
– almost a joker, with your
head down in the pig bin, saying
“keep on digging”…
pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find
down in the pig mine?
You’re nearly a laugh
you’re nearly a laugh,
But you’re really a cry.
