That would be "Niet elk varken stinkt" in Dutch.

"Pig" is the animal and "pork" is the meat that you eat. :) In Dutch this would be:

  • Varken - pig
  • Varkensvlees - pork

So ruiken is for the action of smelling, or for something that smells good, stinken is just used for things that smell bad? Is ruiken a cognate of reek?
