Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Help!
 
My bare bones have some flesh on them---
Some muscle, fat and such;
But, when I ponder all the facts,
I don't mind that too much.

Perhaps you'd say I'm kind of plump,
And I might just agree.
The thought of giving up my flesh
Seems cowardly to me.

I'm not a virgin sacrifice
Or cannibal's next meal.
The meat that fills my body out
Is pink, and I would squeal.

I guess I'm what you'd label 'aged'
Although I'm not 'prime cut'
Because I've dined for many years
to pad my ample butt.

I'm not a fan of barbecue;
I like my ribs intact.
If you dare even mention roast,
you'll spur a riot act.

Don't order up a BLT;
Instead, try fish or clams.
I'll thank you with a great big oink
To stay the pig I am.
