Loving Pigs more than Pork

I don’t think I want to eat pigs anymore.

It sounds pretty terrible when you say it that way, right?  Nobody eats pigs; people eat pork.  Whatever you choose to call it, though, I don’t think I want anymore.  That really isn’t fair–I don’t eat pork very often.  A little bacon for breakfast from time to time, and if pepperoni is pork, then definitely there.

Can this be done?  Yes, and I’ll tell you how:

Image It really does not get any cuter than this.  I used to have 5 guinea pigs.  And yes, I do realize that’s not the same thing, but once you picture their little faces it’s pretty hard to imagine eating them.

I’m clearly not a vegetarian or a vegan [yet], and I don’t have the latest statistics from PETA or anywhere else, but this month, I’d like to start my life of not eating little Wilbur.  If you are a vegetarian, or vegan, or statistic-possessor, please please please do contact me and educate me.  What is happening with pigs in the world?  Is there anyway to eat pigs [and other animals] in a humane way?  I’m looking forward to hearing from you all.
