head on a plate

what is it with delis putting boar heads on the walls? ok, so it's a good brand of meat. but is there something about a dead animal's head on the wall that makes customers look at that shrink-wrapped hunk of processed meat and think, 'wow, that's fresh! gotta have it.'

do people sit there, eating their ham sandwich and look up at the pig on the wall and think, 'thanks, buddy!'

The thing is about those boar's heads is that they speak to the people that actually eat meat - as long as it isn't pork. Like the Chik-fil-a cows that promote eating more chicken.

Just the other day I had a nice little chat with one about how some people like the deli meat thin-cut and some thick-cut. People just like different things we concluded.

He and I were discussing chicken white meat vs. dark meat the other day.

Believe it or not, he likes dark meat (finds it more moist) however, he chooses a wing over a little leg when eating hot wings.

I have never heard of such. I explained to him how Amy eats her wings and we chuckled.

Thanks Bets, for one more reason to cut out mammals from my diet.
