Assistance w/ a theological question



Pork rinds, are they good for the soul? Part two of the question. Do I get some right now?

Pork rinds are illegal north of the Mason-Dixon line.

yes and yes, but you really need a cream soda or a ginger ale as well.

WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!

Cracklins, my friend, are NOT pork rinds.

Pork rinds are fried pig skin.
Cracklins are fried pig skin with the fat back left on.

Good pork rinds are crispy and light.
Good Cracklins are crunchy and gooey.

To insinuate otherwise would be like saying that boudin is just sausage!

Ah, but would I go gourmet, like Slim Jim, or that skanky no name brand w/ the government cheese stick tossed in as a "bonus"?

I am complete.

We have fried fatback at restaurants here as a side item. It looks like fossilized bacon.

Only spicy pork rinds are good for the soul. Plain ones will leave you soulless and empty.

Hot and Spicy pork rinds w/ a ginger ale. The hot and spicy helps to keep the fat from clogging your arteries, and the ginger ale helps to settle the stomach. It is, to state it simply, the ultimate snack.

Forget that mass-produced packaged crap, get some freshly prepared pork-rinds. WAY, WAY better.
