I did rip into it for someone else who was too squeamish to stick her fork in, because helping people is more important than a dead pig. I even cut her a piece of the cheek, which Ted says is the best, better than bacon, part. I seem to remember last year that it was pretty good, but it's definitely the squickiest part of the animal to cut into. I didn't find it stomach turning, just completely unappealing, even when cut in small pieces on people's plates. No secret bacon cravings here. Bleh.
Rebecca was pretty fascinated by it, but didn't seem disturbed at all. Now on my lap looking at the picture she's saying "It's still dead, the pig is still dead. Mama, the people were hungry and they ate some pig. I ate some pasta." So fascinated, and, yah, she didn't want to eat the pig, but then she doesn't want to eat most foods so that's not saying much.
