Low on the Hog

Today I was in line at Giant checkout and struck up a conversation with a black man about ham hocks. He says they are tasty to eat.

The black tradition of eating them probably arose during slave times when black folk got what the whites didn't want. Maybe low on the hog isn't so bad. The way things are going everyone might be eating low on the hog. Let's look on the bright side.
