Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, May 05, 2021

I liked this turn-of-the-20th-Century advertising placard (which I used for my post about the abundance of pig imagery on Suicide Food) so much, that I’ve gone ahead and uploaded it to my phone. It’s now doing duty as the digital wallpaper for both the front/exterior screen, as well as the larger screen inside the clamshell.

The few comments I’ve solicited tell me it’s unsettling for a cellphone to feature a picture of a pig slicing itself into sausage. My Eurotrashy counter of, “but it’s French!” doesn’t seem to assuage those feelings.

I guess it’s not the cheeriest image to use. But I must point out: The pig is smiling as he puts himself under the knife. And the background is a nice, cheery green, which is my favorite color (and really, the chief reason why I went for it).

The translation of the language in this picture, according to the source:

“You’ll eat with pleasure, and… without fatigue [i.e., without boredom/getting tired of it]: the good sausages of the BOUNTEOUS PIG!

Sausages from Auvergne. Absolute Alimentary Purity.”

Not that it matters as far as my phone goes — the screens are too tiny to read the text.
