Pulled Pork

I had pulled pork for dinner. With BBQ sauce and coleslaw and baked beans and potato salad and all that you’re supposed to have with it. And cornbread.

You can get pulled pork or pulled chicken. Since I like symmetry, I tried to think what would be the opposite of pulled pork.

The opposite of pull is push, so is there a pushed food?

I would say yes – the hot dog.

As far as meat goes, I can’t disagree that a hot dog is the opposite of pulled pork.

Note: to sound more technical, you can use the term extruded rather than pushed. Doesn’t really sound appetizing either way though.

I suppose spaghetti and other noodles are also extruded, although with pasta it doesn’t seem so bad. Pasta is fun to watch being made. Maybe pasta could be called “pushed dough” or “pushed wheat”?

So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
