Hey, people still have to eat you know, and hell, pork is like, really, really expensive just now. Those organs aren't for transplants, by the way, they're pork substitutes. I've heard you can scarcely tell the difference in a "pork" bun.

The wholesale price of pork in China surged 74.6 percent in June compared with the same month last year, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) announced on Monday.
The ministry, however, did not provide the average wholesale price last month.
The wholesale prices polled by the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) in 36 large and medium-sized cities averaged 18.57 yuan per kilogram on July 11, up nearly 30 percent from the 14.25 yuan on May 11. The average retail price for lean pork has exceeded 22 yuan per kilogram.
The price hikes in feedstuff and the outbreaks of the blue ear disease are mainly blamed for the pork price surge.
