I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED WHY — APART FROM THE FACT THAT IT TASTES SO GOOD — THE SPANISH EAT SO MUCH PORK. PERHAPS IT ORIGINATED AS A KNEE-JERK REACTION DURING THE POST-MOOR PERIOD WHEN THE SPANISH INQUISITORS WERE ROAMING THE COUNTRY TORTURING ANYONE WHO DIDN’T CONFORM TO THEIR PARTICULAR BRAND OF MONOTHEISM. JEWS AND MUSLIMS WHO HAD CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY OFTEN LIVED IN FEAR AND PROCLAIMED THEIR NEW FAITH BY PUBLICLY EATING PORK; THE MORE ENTHUSIASTIC CONVERTS WOULD HANG A HAM OR SAUSAGES
