WATCH: Is Stephen Colbert Going To Eat Carl Edgar Blake’s Heritage Pig?
Carl Edgar Blake II might be known in certain chef-fy circles for his uniquely bred half-Chinese, half-Russian, Swabian Hall pigs — and from a recent a Times profile that sang praises of the former computer programmer’s pork. But now with Blake’s appearance on The Colbert Report, it’s safe to say that heritage hogs are going mainstream. “Mainstream,” however, apparently just means that Stephen Colbert accuses Blake of raising “commie” pigs while eating a slice of delicious prosciutto, likely from the mother of the piglet he’s cradling. Welcome to the Media, Hamlet.
