And so we end the week here at Blognonymous with a saying that you always suspected to be true but that never had any definitive proof.
Scientists at NEC Systems and Mie University have designed a little robot that can tell you what it's tasting
. And what does the metal maitre d' think of a reporter's hand? "BACON!" it replies.
So there you have it folks. Men really are pigs.
Well, I certainly didn't need a robot to tell me that!
Well men have always been associated with porcine metaphors. You "bring home the bacon", "hog the remote control", and "get porked". Makes sense to me.
You don't need a robot. The natives of New Guinea have always known white men as 'Long Pig', presumably because of the taste.
Love the color of it anyway...
To quote Vincent Vega and Jules Winfield from Pulp Fiction :
Jules: Pigs are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.
Vincent: Yeah but bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good.
Jules: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy mother-fu**ers. Pigs sleep and root in sh**. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eating nothing that ain't got sense enough to disregard his own feces.
Vincent: How 'bout a dog? Dog eats his own feces.
Jules: I don't eat dog either.
Vincent: Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?
Jules: I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy, but they definitely dirty. But, dog's got personality; personality goes a long way.
Vincent: Ahh, so by that rational, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?
Jules: Well, we'd have to be talking one charming mother-fu**ing pig. And I ain't talking bout that Arnold of Green Acres.
Pam, Fashiongirl...being a frog, I don't know much about you higher mammals, but from what I know of the average man's apartment, makes sense to me as well.
Cartledge...so I guess you could say, "Man the other, other white meat".
Sumo, you know I thought about changing it, but then thought...what the hell.
Tina, does personality go a long way with men as well? :-) I mean...when you're looking at a tub that hasn't been cleaned in a decade?
Without question, men are pigs. But we can't help it - it's in our jeans.
Ah, Tina, Vince and Jules. Funny stuff. (Vince literally couldn't live without Jules, eh?)
Kvatch, did it taste a female reporters hand? Or maybe no female reporters were allowed to attend. Never mind.
Julien, I actually don't know if the reporter was male or female. I was being a sexist male frog-pig, and using "his" for the reporter. So sue me! :-)
How odd, I am throwing a big tent party tonight with a theme called Rose Colored Glasses. Anyway, the theme is Rose Colored Glasses because we all need to wear a pair, celebrate for the evening and then toss them aside to face the days of political squabbling ahead. The food provided is all pork based because John Conlee, who recorded the song Rose Colored Glasses, slopped hogs when he was a young man. Invitation to the Rose Colored Glasses party is on my site, and tonight, everything, men, women, butlers, ponies, etc. will all smell like pig all night long. We need to get that robot there to see if he is as smart as he thinks he is!
I wonder what that reporter had been doing with that hand before he let the robot "taste" it?
Pursey, sounds like a super idea, and I'm sorry that I missed the bash. As Vincent said, "Bacon tastes good, pork-chops taste good"! :-)
