Landon Chronicles (1950): Kenneth on dining with ambassador Merle Cochran (hour 76, clip 11)
Merle Cochran gave Kenneth a dinner in which the meat, which was pork chops, was so tough that he could not cut it. Cochran sat there and laughed as Kenneth toiled away on the pork chops. The only way he could get anything off a pork chop was to pick it up and gnaw on it. Cochran said that this was the only kind of meat they could get.
