1. And remember, do NOT let the heathen Pennsylvanians get you to eat it with maple syrup!

Eat it as god and Marylanders intended, with ketchup.

19. I like it fried

and served with eggs over medium.

I'm good with that but a little Louisiana Hot Sauce would not hurt my feelings.

2. Back in 1984, when we moved from Seattle to suburban Phila, we decided to buy a "block"

of scrapple. Sliced it, fried it, tasted it...and then our German Shepherd Heidi enjoyed it and the uncooked block for her dinner!



I'll take Taylor Pork Roll any day!

...been the victim of insufficient frying. A serving is 3 oz. Lots of folks don't like it when its sliced too thick.

33. LOL! literally LOL!

i managed to get to the second paragraph where i read: "Scrapple is typically made of hog offal, such as the head, heart, liver, and other trimmings, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head), to make a broth"

(i considered throwing up for a moment. then changed my mind.)

4. I love scrapple and eat it the way..................

my Philadelphia born father taught us. Fry it (put flour on it prior to frying it, if you desire), till it's crisp, and enjoy it with ketchup.

8. My mom's mom used to make it from the actual pig head.

They bought a pig every year for their meat and used it all.

Never had it, but had what the Welsh call "faggots" meaning "bundles" which are pork liver meatballs cooked in the peritoneum and covered with gravy. Those were pretty gross.

12. I used to work on a deli where "Head Cheese" was really popular - in RI.

I swear, you could look at a slice and treat it like a puzzle in your mind, reforming the pig's head parts....noses, eyeballs, etc. Customers would come up and ask for it "sliced tick so I can putiton my toast" (not a spelling error - tick, not thick!).

The other thing about head cheese - if you dropped it, it could sometimes bounce right back up into your hands!

16. In my best "cousin Vinnie" voice...

Vinny Gambini: Whoa. How long you been wearing glasses?
Constance Riley: Since I was 6.
Vinny Gambini: Have they always been that "tick"?

Judge Chamberlain Haller: Uh... did you say 'yutes'?
Vinny Gambini: Yeah, two yutes.
Judge Chamberlain Haller: What is a yute?

Seriously. She totally freaked - "BIG DOG! BIG DOG! HOLY FUCK! THAT'S A BIG DOG!"

30. I know. I live around here. At least they put orange triangles on the buggies now.

 

They didn't used to. But the horse still freaked the fuck out of the dog. I'm not sure she's ever gotten over it. That's one FUCKING BIG DOG!

I'm quite certain it was the first time she had ever seen a horse. She's a big dog, but horses are a SHITLOAD bigger. It had to have been traumatic. "THERE'S SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME?!!?!?!?!"

I think she might have gotten over it. Not sure. Dogs are smart and have long memories. The sheltie won't sleep on one side of the bed because she fell off of it twice (and got stuck once). Do NOT underestimate a dog's intelligence or memory. They know. They just know.

Animals in general are way more intelligent than humans grant them. That includes the wild ones. If any species is weak, it be us. We regularly kill each other. Animals rarely stoop to that level.

31. Animals are sometimes smarter than humans.

I often like animals better than people.

There was an experiment with chimps, I think, where chimps were taught to get food by pushing a button. Two chimps were then placed in tanks next to each other and when either chimp pressed the button they still got food but the other chimp would get an electric shock. The chimps refused to eat.

OTOH, you may have heard about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

People just aren't all they're cracked-up to be.

32. Um, usually smarter. The human race is self-destructive. Most animal species protect their own.

 

Face it. As "smart" as we might be, we're destined to eliminate ourselves. It can't be otherwise. Animals will survive. They have for many centuries. All we've done is prove that we can't. I wish them well.
