Pig Boneless pork rectums

Comment: The attached picture has appeared now on several image sites on the
Internet. I’ve tried searching to see if this is real, faked, or
Photoshopped, but haven’t found an answer. Can you help? If this is real,
for what ungodly purpose would this “Product of the USA” be used for?

[Tasteless Southern stereotype joke]

I assume boned pork rectums are only found in Kentucky.

And the secret is…boneless pork rectums, finely diced. All the hush-hush is over because, through carelessness, these boxes were allowed to be photographed just before they were hustled into a restaurant in Taiwan. But now that their presence has been revealed to the world, the silence surrounding dumpling recipes can be broken.

Tried looking on the Tyson website with no luck.

Obviously Chik-fil-a is adding to its menu, and only the most God-fearing, bone-shunning rectums will be worthy of their deep frying.

At least they're boneless. I know I hate having to debone pork rectums.

Looks like you can buy them here, though "sadly" there's no photo. Address of the supplier is "445 east 89th treets, Chicago, Illinois" and there's a contact name and phone number.

Since when are rectums the same as small intestines on pigs?

I have actually had these at a resturant in SF chinatown. Slightly chewey with an odd aftertastes. It was a dare, may have involved a few drinks before hand.

I know when I go for a pig rectum, a bone is the last thing I worry about finding in it.

My mother used to say in the old days, people ate every part of the pig "except the squeal". Perhaps she should have added "... and the fart."

They have them for sale in a couple of places near here, never tried them, I'm an adventurous eater but that may take some building up to.

This may have to go without saying, but wouldn't a bony pork rectum make for very constipated pigs?
