When I was a kid, we used to have what my mom called fatback meat for dinner a lot, maybe some sweet potatoes and pinto beans, corn bread, etc. for dinner. Does anybody still eat fatback?

Pig walks into a bar, orders a beer and drinks it down. Asks the bartender where is the restroom. Goes to restroom and leaves. Second pig comes into bar; same thing, one beer, restroom and leaves. Third pig comes in, has a beer and starts to leave. Bartender says "Hey, don't you need to use the restroom?" "No" says pig, "I'm the pig that goes wee, wee, wee all the way home".

DW, we just save a little to cook with greenbeans.
Wolf is right, we been buying our butcher hogs from the farm dept at Eastern Ky U, about 220# and there isn't enough fat to make good sausage, much less render lard for the fish frys.

Doubtful. Hogs are bred nowadays to be super lean, around 48 to 50 % backfat. No flavor left with the fat that low and raised on concrete.
