I wouldn't know about that.How fat a pig is depends upon what it eats in respect to its energy expenditure. Is this what you're saying?1) Volucris, in response to you, referenced the Shaw quote about wrestling with pigs.2) In response to Volucris, you appeared to misunderstand the metaphorical nature of Shaw's observation, which led you to assert that no one could possibly mistake you for a pig, since you are quite slim (i.e. lean).3) My response to you, regarding the leanness of pork, draws from the fact that over the last few decades industrial pork production has moved from breeding fat pigs (for lard) to breeding much leaner pigs (in response to consumer demand for less-fatty meat). Since pigs are, in fact, leaner than they once were, my response is intended to challenge your assertion that no one could mistake you for a pig based on your slimness. Some might have thought it was a joke.In sum: No, I wasn't being literal about porcine caloric intake and expenditure.
