The Japanese eat every part of a pig except, they say, its squeal. The French are more fussy: they never eat the tail. Most of everything else often ends up in a pâté because, goes the old saying, Dans le cochon, tout est bon: all good enough, that is, to eat.
However, it appears the French are also a little squeamish about overtly using pig’s hair for shaving brushes, as recently a blogger reported seeing brushes in a Parisian store that the small print on the label showed were made in Germany, but used pig’s hair that came from… France.
