The Vanna White of pork
"I just got 1/4 of a pig delivered to my house by the lovely Johanna Davidson Bleckman, the Vanna White of pork, and her hunky husband. We are having bacon for supper." (Jan. 22, 2012, Magda Pecsenye, Facebook)

Feel free to use these descriptions when discussing your beautiful children, longtime companions, sworn enemies, favorite foods, and elected congress-scum.
