Found this in Sunday's newspaper .... just when you have thought you had seen, heard or experienced just about everything .... something like this comes along
TOMPKINS, Sask. - Southwestern Saskatchewan is mourning the loss of a retired farmer who garnered international fame by biting pig spleens to forecast the weather - sometimes with amazing accuracy.
Using a technique learned from his father, Gus Wickstrom, 69, would slaughter a pig, pluck out its spleen, bite into it, and come up with a forecast for the area around Tompkins
Wickstrom was so good that he was featured in The Old Farmers Almanac.
Thought I'd share this because it has something to do with meat.
Love to hear any other weird stories that may be lurking around ....
