Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, April 21, 2021

The premise behind Suicide Food — highlighting imagery used by restaurants and packaged foods that comic-tragically features the animal being eaten as its own pitchman — is absurd enough.

What’s even more enlightening from this blog: The number of examples wherein the pig pimps itself as a tasty treat: Thirty, far ahead of its barnyard (and other) brethren. And “bbq” is right behind it at 25; since those two go hand-in-hand, it points to a preponderance of barbecue joints using a porky character to drive business.

Why the pig is so hell-bent on tooting its own immolation is a mystery. Maybe a re-read of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” would unearth a clue.
