Bladder Football
(for my REAL LIFE blogfriends, who I know have been dying for these directions.)

From Aunt Beth, who said, "Phil always got this. I wondered why but now I know I wouldn't want to do this."

Remove bladder from freshly butchered hog. Leave the tube attached. Wash under the pump or hose until clean. (Some urine may be left in it until washed good.) Blow up with a hand pump until very tight. (Don' t be squeamish, after all, all footballs are made from pig skin.) Tie with a strong string very tight. Let dry and Wow! You have a good ball. Can be painted if desired.
