During the era of slavery in America the slave owners would eat the high end of the hog and feed their slaves the low end of the hog which contributed to the soul food we are familiar with today.

Eating high on the hog was the original. Living was a variant.

I suppose different versions of it depending on your location in America.

My Dad always said that when we sold crops or got a good milk check on the farm.
