From the Department of Press Releases We Just Have to Share on a Rainy Friday When We'd Rather Be Watching Star Trek:

An organization called Faces of Agriculture -- which is NOT at all like Faces of Death -- has announced a contest entitled "Pork on a Fork." The goal is to raise "awareness of the importance of pork to the American diet and economy" in light of swine flu.

So what is "Pork on a Fork"?
[The] contest...encourages people to submit photos of family members, friends, customers, anyone, anywhere eating pork.

Photos received by May 26 will be judged, and the winner will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, June 3-5. All submitted entries will be available for viewing during the World Pork Expo and on
You can find all the submission info on the Faces of Agriculture Web site. The illustration doesn't have anything to do with the contest (except the obvious pork connection) -- I just thought it was a sweet picture.
