I prefer to eat my pig anus live.

Not even as a special order?

"And while no one at the plant had ever seen a rectum packaged as a squid, employees there confirmed that they had heard the story, too."

Maybe we should be asking what they HAVE seen rectum packaged as...

Well, there goes my weekend.

They're merely sauteed?

I listened to this story on TAL via NPR. It was rather interesting listening to the progression from revulsion to maybe this could work. The blind taste test with two of Ben's colleagues was a bit funny - since predictably, they each picked the opposite (feeling confident they would KNOW the difference).

Not a huge calamari fan, and this didn't help it's popularity with me :)

old link is new again or am i from the future?

Rectum? It nearly killed him!

/thanks folks, I'll be here all week

Backdoor Calamari would be a great fark login.

The only thing you can't eat on a pig is the squeal

What don't Philippinos eat for 20 Alex?
 
2013-01-21 02:00:55 PM
All those poor pigs with gaping a-holes. What a dumb urban legend.
 
2013-01-21 02:01:02 PM
This is a direct result of reality TV. I saw some dumb show where the contestants had to eat pickled pig anus. I'm pretty sure this is where this crap originated.

Hog Bung.

So I'll have to wait for the county fair to get my friend pig anus?

Frying pig anus? I know you are but what am I?
Wait - that didn't sound right.
 
2013-01-21 02:04:10 PM
Squid is about the cheapest seafood there is. It's sustainable, easy to catch, and freezes well. I can't imagine that pig anuses wouldn't cost more.

Does anyone else remember the Kids in the Hall sketch where they bring out the clearly retarded girl, claim that she's only colorblind and force her to eat pig anuses? I don't know why, but that was hilarious.
 
2013-01-21 02:04:40 PM
i like my pig anus like i like my women. warm.
 
2013-01-21 02:05:45 PM
Everyone knows that calimari is foreskins.
Ever wondered why there are so many Greek restaurants in the Jewish section of town? There's your answer.
 
2013-01-21 02:07:30 PM
now that we've all been reassured that it's an urban legend, deep-fried piggy butts are even now in transit to your favorite seafood restaurant.

/by black helicopter, of course.
 
2013-01-21 02:08:24 PM
Waiter, my calamari just squealed & farted! Might I have a word with the cook?
 
2013-01-21 02:09:36 PM
No shiat sherlock. Squid, or as fishermen call it, "bait," is just about the cheapest protein there is. Hog anuses are more expensive. Just don't tell anyone paying a premium for calamari in a restaurant.
 
2013-01-21 02:10:55 PM
That must be why, lately, sex with my calamari has been waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than usual.
 
2013-01-21 02:11:40 PM
Seriously? I'm the one who has to ask if it is remarkable?

/Fark I am dissapoint

Magnanimous_J: I do not, and am now intrigued.

Well, Vince, that's a relief...
 
2013-01-21 02:15:13 PM
I'll always wonder when I get a plate of calamari and there are no squiggles.

Best quote from TFA:
"a taste test showed that switching rectums for calamari might indeed go undetected"
 
2013-01-21 02:17:50 PM
We all got pig rectums once the lights go down.
 
2013-01-21 02:20:00 PM
You worship sausage, but yet you are disgusted by the little bit at the end?
 
2013-01-21 02:21:01 PM
At least they're not serving uranus

`Waiter, this calamari looks puckered!'

`Well, when the fry oil hits the anus- er - I'll take it back to the kitchen to relax it.'
 
2013-01-21 02:24:58 PM
backdoor calamari FTW

I believe that would be Upright Citizens Brigade, not Kids in the Hall.

But it does go back to my theory that the average American couldn't tell good food from pig's anus.

Got any hot sauce?

Wow, this story has more legs than it deserves.
 
2013-01-21 02:26:36 PM
Well there goes the McRib for another year.

Thanks a lot pig anus eaters, save some for the rest of us!
