These are very calm pigs, and that’s the way we want them to be.

Danish Crown is the world's largest exporter of pork, killing approximately 100,000 pigs a week to cater to the growing global demand for meat. Alastair Philip Wiper visited the company's abattoir in Horsens to capture a behind-the-scenes look at the entire process, starting at the pens where the pigs arrive and moving through the spaces where the animals are slaughtered, butchered and packaged for sale.

"Conspiracy theorists and technocrat pundits"

The New Inquiry: Just The Facts
With its emphasis on the empirical, conspiracism is uncomfortably similar to the technocratic mindset of mainstream political discourse. Technocratic pundits — typified by the likes of Ezra Klein, a journalist and blogger who runs the Washington Post's Wonkblog — are likewise driven almost exclusively by data sets and empirical studies. As Bhaskar Sunkara suggested in this piece for In These Times, such pundits operate under the assumption that the facts are so powerful that they might lead people of all ideologies to embrace a particular array of ideology-free policies.

Hide the salami

The Klements Racing Sausages have been a popular feature at Milwaukee Brewers games since the 1990s. On February 16, the “Guido the Italian Sausage” costume was stolen from a bar in Cedarburg, WI. Happily, the missing link was returned to the bar Wednesday. Rewards for the safe return of the sausage, including a year’s supply of mustard and sauerkraut, seem not yet to have been claimed.

James Dean? JIMMY Dean!

Jimmy Dean (Aug. 28, 1928 - June 13, 2010) is best known to Mefites for his brand of sausage, although he sold the company in the '80s, and was dropped as its spokesman in 2003; its current owner is Sara Lee*. But his musical legacy is sealed by his 'country rap*' classic "Big Bad John" (performed live in 2008), often imitated, but never parodied better than with "Big Bruce"** (info). But to me, he was the guy with the variety show where he spent several minutes every week bantering with the muppet Rowlf****. Here's Jimmy in Esquire Magazine's "What I've Learned". His final resting place is music-themed, NOT sausage themed. "Here lies one hell of a man." [more inside]

Ain't No Doubt, I Love This Land

How to Smoke a Fatty is a helpful tutorial that does what it says. Here is a thread full of fatty experimentation, including epic Taco Bell fatty. Fatty inside a fatty inside a fatty inside a fatty. Maybe you'd prefer a fatty with venison and mushrooms + bacon weave. For the gourmand: vegetable-stuffed fatty with rosemary potatoes. [via]

Russian sausage culture

Six Russian artists have created reproductions of world-famous paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Van Gogh and Picasso entirely out of sausage, earning a Guiness record certificate . This exhibition of perfectly edible art pieces took place a few weeks ago in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don to celebrate the centennary of a local meat-processing factory. Close-up photos of the pieces at English Russia. [more inside]

Is that a Spicey Sausage in Your Pants?

The victims told deputies they awoke Saturday morning to the stranger applying spices to one of them and striking the other with an 8-inch sausage. Bill McEwen gives us the skinny on the pun fallout from such an event, along with an historical analysis of other sausage related assaults. Don't forget your Pappy's!

Cooking with Masao

Sharing means caring, right? Well, Masao would like to share with you his techniques for cooking Torta di ceci which is a type of Italian cake. If beverages are your thing, perhaps you'd like a nice glass of Sambuca exotic fruit punch, some peach juice, or something he calls his "Super Energy Raisin Juice". More of a hot dog or sausage person? Well then, our buddy Masao has got that covered for you!

In all fairness, these video clips might ruin your appetite so be aware of that in advance.

Pancakes and sausage...it's fun on a stick!

Pancakes and sausage...it's fun on a stick! As seen on tv. Parents admit, "I do spoil [my son] and let him have something which others may disapprove of." Serving size: 1 piece. A nutritional part of these school menus.

We'll send you to Hog Heaven, all right!

The inside of Farmer John's hog rendering plant in Vernon, California, is among the worst places on Earth if you happen to be a hog, which is why the outside of the building is such a case study in mural based irony. In 1957, perhaps as a trap to lure in unsuspecting piglets who had come to Los Angeles to make it in the movies, the folks at Farmer John's hired Hollywood set designer Les Grimes to begin painting a mural on the outside of the factory, a job that he continued until his death 11 years later. The result, entitled "Hog Heaven", depicts a pastoral wonderland, clearly a prime destination for any visiting out of town porcine rube. Surely one of the world's largest murals, the work stretches around the entire square cityblock worth of slaughterhouse, and (legend has it) is so large that not unlike the Golden Gate bridge, no sooner is it done being painted than the painter must begin touching it up all over again.
