Two legs better

Re: Raised, Braised

So, Winston Churchill was fond of pigs because he thought they “treat us as equals”.

While there is some truth (and charm) to this, I would advise readers to be wary of any pig that makes such a claim in public. For, as George Orwell once cautioned, it is only a matter of time before it begins to insist – with disastrous results – that while we are indeed all equal, some are more equal than others.
