Curious if I am the only one to whom the question of,
What does the word "pork" evoke?
Immediately thinks "tryfe"!*
*Translation: non-kosher.

I immediately thought "politicians"  - at first glance, rather
different.  But
many politicians aren't kosher (in the figurative sense) and very few
are kosher
(in the literal sense).

Which reminds me of the Jewish family who had FIVE sets of dishes:
2 for everyday dairy or meat meals.
2 for Passover dairy or meat meals
1 for the occasional ham sandwich!

You forgot the 6th set that they would never be caught dead eating
