January 23, 2007: Two thousand sacrificed pigs



gmr2048 points to this recently-uploaded Flickr set, which is labeled with nothing other than 2000 pigs as sacrifice and offerring to the deity General Chao of Wudeh temple at a temple festival in Jendeh, southern Taiwan, 19 Jan 2007, and I hereby fairly use the first shot of them knowing that you'll probably be tempted to click through to the rest of the set.



Deuce  Tuesday Jan 23 12:21 PM

I'll leave the obligatory "I wonder how they taste" cracks for others.

It looks like they're all bowing, prostrating themselves, doesn't it?



glatt  Tuesday Jan 23 12:25 PM

What a waste.

Edit: It looks like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is playing the festival/sacrifice.



Sundae  Tuesday Jan 23 12:44 PM

I know I should be horrified at the waste (I assume they are not eaten afterwards? extensive Googling tells me no more about this) but some of the pictures had me laughing out loud.

In fact if avatars were allowed on this site I think mine would be one of an apparently cheerful dead pig, smiling even though he is split from stem to stern and with a gaudy flag flapping about his head....



Elspode  Tuesday Jan 23 01:06 PM

*General*? There's a deity which holds a military commission?



Deuce  Tuesday Jan 23 01:18 PM

Perhaps they mean "non-specific".



monster  Tuesday Jan 23 01:23 PM

Apparently Jendeh is Persian for Whore.

I believe the movie version that will tell this story shall be titled "Watch On The Rind".

Hmmm. Could be. Or were you googling "prostrate porkers"? I didn't turn up any dodgy sites. Unless you count the myspace pages where "wudeh" appears to be common parlance.

(I have medium-safe search enabled to protect the internet from my 9yo. Should I flip the switch and see what comes up.... or maybe not....)

Is he the General that the Chicken is named after? I've never heard of General's Pork ...

I like this shot of the happy pig arrangers.

Actually I think it's the minipops version of Sgt. Pepper, actual size.




SPUCK  Wednesday Jan 24 05:25 AM

Sundae  Wednesday Jan 24 05:35 AM
