I wandered lonely as a pork cloud

Yes, pork cloud. What the Bacon’s Heir company has re-named their version of chicharrones, aka (fried) pork rinds, which they believe are so fluffy that they have to be thought of as pork puffs:

We take fresh pork skin, melt off the fat, cure the skin in salt, and rapidly puff it in olive oil [so: pork skin puffs]. The result is so outrageously fluffy we had to change the name.

To my ear, the name is risible, very close to oxymoronic.

(Shirtless guy, sexual slang, lots of sexlube, suggestive naming, but nothing truly hard-core.)

Yesterday’s Daily Jocks ad, for Amity Jack products:

(#1) Model in jock strap applying BANG Oil from Amity Jack

Trade names Jack and BANG, both chosen to suggest uses for the company’s main products, sexlubes for gay men: to jack oneself or another guy off, to bang a guy.
