I realize football season is now over, and some consider the Superbowl a large upset, but anyway here is my question.

Do you know what the single worldwide largest use of pigskin is?

It's not footballs - they use leather.

Cosmetic surgery.

Pigskin can be made into tanned leather for footballs ;)

So? Footballs can be made from human skin too. But they're not. And they're not made from pig skin either.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigskin

In North America, the term football refers to a ball which is used to play American football or Canadian football (both of which developed from Rugby football). It is also referred to as a "pigskin", due to their early use of pig hide to cover the ball. However, when the United States and Asian governments realized how uneconomical it was to manufacture the balls from this material, a movement was sparked by the AATUPS in 1932 arguing that the cruelty towards the pigs was inhumane.

Besides I still stand behind the correct answer which GIJeff said :P
