Another hat tip to Sir-Mix-Alot, who used a surprisingly high number of meat references in his work....

Here's a little PSA -- pork butt (aka Boston Butt) is NOT from the pig's rear. It is the top of the shoulder. There isn't really a clear consensus on WHY it is called a butt, but some historians believe it has to do with the colonial American practice of storing this cheap cut of pork in large casks or barrels (also known as "butts").

I think I just made Sir-Mix-ALot sad.
