Advertisement of the Week — Disturbing Porcine Masochistic Edition

OK, I love sausage of all kinds, including saucisson, but I really don’t think this makes me want to break out the grinder to stuff some sausage — or to eat any. Oh, my.


I only took one year of French in the tenth grade, but my Google translation reads something like, “We eat with pleasure . . . without fatigue! Pure. Food. Absolut. The good sausage of the prodigal pig!”

Prodigal? You betcha.

    It’s just too weird. It reminds me of the talking cow in the restaurant at the end of the universe in the book, “Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy”.

    Wow: that’s about the best happy-dying-about to be eaten-type ad I’ve ever seen. Maybe the Onion had a better one, but that one (which isn’t online anymore) was deliberately ridiculous. Do you know how old your ad is?

    I wonder if “Pureté Alimentaire Absolue” is somehow supposed to be a parallel construction with “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.” Maybe a better parallel would be “Off with his head!” 🙂

    Leave it to the French. A self immolating charcutier pig!

  4. Oh, DELIGHTFUL. That’s like my favorite BBQ restaurant in Orlando, Bubbalou’s Bodacious BBQ. Their sign had three pigs frolicking through the flames in sunglasses. NICE.

    Well, you know, if you’re going to be frolicking through flames, you better be wearing shades!
