Pork Scratchings are small fried pieces of pig skin, often hairy, and sometimes with chewy and frankly unpleasant fat on the underside. They are commonly found as foil-wrapped snacks in English bars, which is probably because they can only possibly be enjoyed in tandem with beer. The two contrasting flavours complement each other perfectly, and all other experiments (pork scratchings downed with a cup of tea in front of the television, pork scratchings provided as finger-buffet component, etc) have proved unsuccessful.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
