On Break
Hi all. TFKoP will be taking a break for a while. My idea-well has run out and I've been on cruise control on the site of late. Because I think the name The Finest Kind of Pork is such a wicked awesome name, I expect to be back. Maybe not on blogger, but somewhere on the net. If it happens, I'll post it here to let you know.
Until that time, I'm on break.
Thanks to all for stopping by and reading. Enjoy the archives.

Wednesday’s Word


Word: Lumper’s helper (characterization)


Usage:

Since a lumper does absolutely mindless stevedore work, a lumper’s helper would hardly be a fountainhead of erudition. In fact, he’d probably be number than a pounded thumb: “wouldn’t know enough to pour water out of a boot - with the directions stamped on the heel.”


A lumper’s helper might be number’n a hake, but since he does accomplish something in the way of physical labor, he is a cut above a zero.

Did You Know Tuesday


Did you know that B&M Baked Beans were first sold in 1927? Produced by the Burnham & Morrill Company in Portland, ME, this product took nearly seven years of testing before B&M Brick Oven Baked Beans hit the store shelves. They continue to be made in Portland.


The Burham & Morrill Company has been in business since 1867.
