Interlude: Divine Pig

There’s this thing in Taiwan, called Shen Zhu (神豬). Literally, Divine Pig:
Divine pig - pig two

It’s pretty big, and these are smaller specimens:
Divine pig - pig one

Raised to be so big and fat that that they cannot support their own weight, they are slaughtered and displayed for special ceremonies, usually at one of Taiwan’s numerous temples.
Divine pig - pig one to scale Divine pig - celebration

I wonder how they taste?

I also feel like there’s a Charlotte’s Web joke here, but I can’t find it
