Pork Rhines

I’m thinking this is sort of a Lehmann, born of basic confusion of what the food product actually is.
Not obviously named after a part of the pig, since we don’t typically refer to the rind of an animal. So why not attribute it to that river in Germany?

Whats the deal with pork rhines?!?!?!?!?

Does any one know where the pork Rhines factory is.

Pork rhines This one has a photo too

What are pork rhines made from?

Re: Pork Rhines

Just learned a new Nahuatl word for this day before yesterday: kuaw-ewatl = tree-rind, i.e. ‘bark’. (The Spanish words are things like chicharrón(es) , grasitas , and mantequitas , which have nothing to do with rinds.) Ewatl can also mean ‘skin’: if this had been pitzoewatl ‘pigskin’ or had simply not had the kuaw root in there it would have been less remarkable. (fwiw)

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)
