It's not entirely clear why a vegetarian would subject themselves to being a part of this, but a few of them have. In a new video from the Facts. YouTube Channel -- the people behind the "Irish People Try" series -- vegetarians do their best Big Bad Wolf impression and sit down to eat a little pig.
The video says they eat a whole pig. In reality, they're skipping the parts regularly consumed in the United States. They get right to the parts you don't frequently see on US menus: tongue, trotters, ears, head, and even the heart.
For the most part, the three vegetarians are game. Though, it's clearly hard for them at times. Their difficulties aren't just mental, they're gastrointestinal as well. Eating a bunch of meat after not doing it for years can be rough on the stomach. That's succinctly captured by one taster who says, "My stomach feels like one big giant mistake."
