You know you're in the south when...

My local chain grocery store sells pork bellies, fat back and chitterlings. They don't look all that appetizing in the flyer. Next time I'm in the store, I want to see what they look like in person.

Fat back looks kind of like bacon that's mostly fat in the photo. It's square and cut thick instead of in strips. I guess I could understand how that might be good, but when I hear pork bellies, all I can think of is the time I had to choke down some tripe soup to be polite.

That was almost 40 years ago and the memory still makes me gag a little.
