- A brief history of lard

The term lard refers to pig fat in both its rendered and unrendered forms. Lard was commonly used in many cuisines as a cooking fat or shortening, or as a spread similar to butter. Its use in contemporary cuisine has diminished because of health concerns posed by its saturated fat content and its often negative image; however, many contemporary cooks and bakers favor it over other fats for select uses. The culinary qualities of lard vary somewhat depending on the part of the pig the fat was taken from and how the lard was processed. Lard is still commonly used to manufacture soap and to fill daytime Radio 1 with utter banality.

Actually I think it's quite affectionate. Mark & Lard used to rib Peely too and yet Radcliffe was his engineer way back when and was a mate of JP's.

It's probably the people who didn't rib him who weren't on Peely's side
