Ok, 'sounds like you might have a pet pig.  I know someone with a pet
pig.  Certainly the pig is smarter than their dog.  Having met both, I
doubt I'd be willing to process either one from walkin-around animals
to skillet-ready.  I'm pretty happy with the modern approach to meat:
shrink-wrapped in a foam tray at the grocery store.  If there's a
substance that provides the same nutrition and is as tasty as meat
that doesn't require chopping up animals, I'm all for it.  Quorn is
pretty good.  That TVP riblet substance is pretty good too.  I'll give
bugburgers a try when I see them in my grocer's freezer.

When I first saw this subject line from spike, I assume he was
offering to provide a service in exchange for food.  Then I realized,
"No, he is talking about literally eating bugs"  :)
