The boar's head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bay and rosemary;
So I pray you my masters be merry,
Quot estis in convivio

Although I think that is from another ceremony (performed on Christmas Eve)

Hey, think positively. At least it wasn't a break from tradition because some PETA jackarse said it was cruel to the boar to be paraded around in the street.

/would recommend using the PETA bore instead of the real thing next time if that were the case

Ooops... my bad. Someone bet me that I couldnt eat a silk purse, and I got confused. Yukon Jack will do that to you.

So you put fake ears on it. They're already decorating it.

C'mon people you gotta make with what you got!
2005-01-01 09:26:25 PM  
And the ears of corn were eaten too!

The silk purse industry strikes.

A boar on the stake is worth two in the bush.

Our society needs to get more in touch with it's severed animal-head roots.
2005-01-01 11:23:21 PM  
I can't believe that nobody has posted a picture of Boar's Head deli meat yet.

hard hearted harbinger of haggis sought for questioning

You all act like you've never heard of pork rinds.

This is from a site called "Serious About News"?
2005-01-02 12:13:59 AM  
This is my kind of story. This is what is all about.

Friends, Romans, Porkers, lend me your ears...
2005-01-02 12:32:26 AM  
I find it hard to believe that in a place where this sort of thing takes place no one raises hogs or hunts boar.
2005-01-02 12:48:23 AM  
Why not go to the local pet store, buy some pig ears and glue them on?
2005-01-02 01:29:40 AM  
That headline is incredible. You can't make that stuff up.
2005-01-02 06:00:47 AM  

That's the first think I thought of, too

You don't march with the boar's head you wish you had, you march with the boar's head you have.

Plus, they should kill all Mexicans. Or something. Come on guys, they're illegal!
