In fact, I've never met a pig I didn't like. Call it pork, ham, bacon, sausage, lechón, tostón, cochon, barbecued ribs, zhu rou, carnitas, cochinita, prosciutto, sanglier, cinghiale, kielbasa, jabugo, guijuelo, bratwurst, Porky, Arnold, Salomey, Old Major, Napoleon, Snowball, Squealer, Piglet, Babe, Pumba, Razorback, Hamm, Wilbur, Vanz (kant dance), Fifer, Fiddler, Practical, or Miss Piggy, I love it! Pearls, on the other hand, I can't even look at them, let alone touch one!
As for the book, it's beautiful, has lots of interesting information, lush photos and funny hog memorabilia. Makes a great gift; the PORKfect coffeetable book for the pig lover in you, or for ultimate boars like me.
