    This advert popped up on my Facebook feed. I've asked the question that needed to be asked.

    The risk is becoming too attached to them.

    You mean, getting some stuck to your fingers while it's hot and in the pan? Agreed, burned my finger once doing that.

    Trust me the only attachment would probably be to the inside of my arteries.

    Those miniature pigs look a lot like Gloucester Old Spot, so only miniature when compared to a hippo!

    Bloke down the road from us a few years back took to breeding what he called "bitza pigs" and was very closed mouth about their provenance. Whatever they were he did a good trade with the London restaurants. After he sold his 1,000th pig he donated 1,001 to the village fireworks display. Very nice it was too! :D

    Err , miniature pigs ?
    No there piglets , they grow into BIG pigs .
    ( Or bacon sarnies )

    You just need more roughege in your diet .

    Bitza pigs ?
    I guess that means he was selling cat and dog meat that had been fed on pork .
    Was there any strays in the area ?

    I cannott remember a joke from my cousin in Canada but it went alo/ng the lines of:-

    Look out for wild deer when driving, his reply was ' it's easier to look out for it in the meat isle of the suppermarket saves the smashed bumper as you swerve to hit it'

    Sam, between us I think that we have just killed this thread. Have you actually tried the Peruvian cuy? I have never had the opportunity.
    When a group of us went into the Ruwenzori from Uganda our porters caught hyrax and offered some to us. It was good. In return we gave them some of the Tusker beer that they had portered.

    Funny what we eat isn't it? In some places cat is a delicacy but despite just telling Bonnie "I'm fattening you up for emergencies" I could not knowingly eat cat and as dad and me used to show rabbits I am the same about rabbit yet show me a field of gambolling lambs and all I think is "mint sauce"

    As a child I wasn't ever asked to participate in Monday morning 'show & tell' at primary school after I gave a graphic description of how I had helped my grandfather with his rabbits.
