Logically speaking, the (delicious, tender, easily barbecued) meat of the common Dìqiú pigchicken would be called porken.

However, one cannot reasonably expect any Standard-speaker to say or even hear, e.g., the phrase "porken buns" with a straight face.

One dreads to think what they'd make of porken balls.

Innuendo, mostly.

The irony there is appealing, which is presumably the point, but still.

Also: Corwin's favorite Toph face, narrowly edging her very similar "oh, it is on now, bitches" smirk. :)
