So, seeing as the name "Fatty" originated on this very website, by one of our very own Brethren, then his word is final as to what constitutes a fatty.
I'll ask if he can come on here to provide the "exact" current definition. Yes, the definition has been known to change. You got a problem with that? Too bad!
I'll defer to the 'Dog, but to me it has to be pork since that's what Brother Smokey Pig used for the first fatty (which 'Dog subsequently named). There has to be some way to distinguish between a fatty and a meat loaf (which can also be tubular in shape and smoked). But, as always, let the voter decide!
