Pigs Head Plus

It’s a truism that Asians like to eat every part of an animal. As they say about pigs, “Everything but the squeal.” This picture, taken from a market in Chantaburi in the Southeast of Thailand shows pig heads for sale.

Yes, that is a penis on top of each pig head.

We’ve got plenty more Thailand market photos.

The Wednesday Photo is a new picture  each week highlighting something of interest in Thailand. Click on the picture to see a larger version.

    Sorry to ruin your ideas after so many years, but on the head of the pigs are no intimate pig parts, but the pig’s tail.
    These are most likely pig heads sold by people who earlier did a ceremony with these heads at home. This ceremony is a Brahman offering not a real Bhuddist offering, but then Thai Bhuddism mixes up a lot of stuff.
    For best luck 9 pig heads are offered. But that is a lot to eat, so often some heads are sold.
    Sometimes these heads are prepared and then sold on the market for other people to perform the ceremony at home.

    What do the people do with this roasted pig’s head?
