"The FDA approved the use of pig lips on human bodies."
I didn't know if it was just a random thought or left over from a dream.
It got me wondering.
Do pigs even have lips?
I Googled it.
Why, yes, yes they do.
This is what I learned. Not only do pigs have lips, but people EAT them.
You heard me.
Of course, they pickle them first. Is this something my friend Gail, At The Farm, does?

*I just threw up in my mouth a little*
I also realized that, duh, of COURSE pigs have lips! How could you "put lipstick on a pig" otherwise?
According to Wikipedia, "putting lipstick on a pig" is a rhetorical expression, used to convey the message that making superficial or cosmetic changes is a futile attempt to disguise the true nature of a product.
(Remember Presidential hopeful Senator Obama and his comment about McCain/Palin?)
But truthfully, I don't think my "pig lips" thought was really all that deep.
I was probably just having a hankering for a DIFFERENT part of the pig.
