I remember there was a T-shirt floating around the novelty shops back in the 1970's that said "Makin' Bacon", with a suggestive pic emblazoned across the back  ;D

The section of East Springfield I live in was a Pig Farm back in the early decades of the 1900's. I was chastised by a neighbor once who grew up on a farm, who told me it was more properly referred to as a "Gentleman's Farm"

What part of the Pig does "SPAM" come from?

I had the poster, Skip.

There was an old man I knew who was reputed to have killed his young wife and lover. He had a store near our farm. He was always threatening to feed me to the 50 or so hogs he raised.

A few years later a guy was trying to catch a ride along that stretch of road. He spotted something that looked like the top of a human skull. Damned if it wasn't what was left of the lover who'd been missing longer than I'd been alive. The old man had killed both his cheating wife and her lover and fed them to his hogs. As my Grandpa always told me, "Never f*#k with a man who raises hogs." They searched both his main hog pens and never found a trace of the wife. The old man was dead when the skull parts were found.

Pigmeat, you need 16 pigs to do the job right, hence the expression as greedy as a pig...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xUynRdzzsM

This is all fine and proper but lets get to the meat of the issue.....The primary ingredient in Spam is chopped pork shoulder meat mixed with ham. About 90% of Spam is pork from a pig's shoulders. The remaining 10% (or so) comes from the pig's buttock and thigh, better known as ham.  8)

Josh, It's from the other British Guy Richie movie "Snatch" with Brad Pitt as the Irish (boxer) Traveler.  Both movies have a similar cast of characters.
