TRAVELSAPIEN wishes to let everyone know England was always qwirky. Sort of.
In the old days when visitors came over, they could obtain pork, which made them feel special. The would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could "bring home the bacon". They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat".
Is that qwirky or oinky? Fun to follow the trail of quaint phrases and sayings.
What does that have to do with Travel? Well. Absolutely nothing except next time or your first time in England you have a story to tell the locals.
