Toot and Puddle, meet Fleishers

Last night, I was sitting on the couch reading a book while Charlie watched TV. He was watching a show called Toot and Puddle. Gross, I know. Anyway T&P are cartoon pigs that go places and laugh a lot.

The book I was reading was Cleaving: a story of Marriage, Meat and Obsession, that describes (among other things) learning the art of butchery. The very page I was on as I looked up at Toot and Puddle had a pencil drawing of two pig's heads. The chapter describes what's done with them to make headcheese. I find Toot and Puddle irritating. Now, do the math.
