With a name like Kingsford it seems like these folks have their end game all worked out. They'll raise a toast and call him 'some pig' and 'terrific'.

It's odd, there was an E B White quote on Bora's site a few days ago that I ran across while trying to find some vaguely culinary references from Charlottes Web. I noted that the name of the unscrupulous rat in the book was Templeton. Makes the name of a certain organization seem appropriate.
