    I've seen this phrase around here a bit. I have a rough idea of what it means, but could somebody explain the reference since I haven't read Unintended Consequences (it's on my list)?

    On a zoological note, hogs are not bovines.:D They are swine.

    My Ball Cap?

    You read may ball cap?
    I had a few basic black ballcaps printed up with a bright red inscription "Time To Feed The Hogs"...
    I meet many interesting folks in The Gun Culture..
    Oh, not a few feds along the way!

    Unintended Consequences by John Ross.

    As a gun owner, it's your duty to read this.

    I am guessing the hogs serve a similar function as in the movie Hannibal.

    My dad lived on a farm as a boy - he said that pigs eat everything including bones.

    So - if you feed a guy to a lion, you still got a nasty husk to get rid of - I assume that if you feed the hogs, the body is more effectively "mulched" into fertilizer.

    Technically, if somone found scat, they could look for bone fragments and do DNA - but from a practical standpoint, who is going to sift through pig poop on the off chance they may find something?

    Very very very nasty business.

    Is true. Young and on the farm, castration was part of the glory. My Gramps jut threw the "parts" out in the yard, and they were gone by the time we emerged.

    In Canada, British Columbia I think, the police were doing just that at a hog farm. They suspected that some hookers who had disappeared from town just might have been used to feed the hogs.

    A couple years back if I remember correctly.

    I was laying in bed this morning half awake and it occured to me that cattle are bovine, not swine. I knew someone was gonna call me on that.:eek: It's not uncommon for my subconscious to work on an error all night and manifest it to my conscious whilst waking up. :confused:
