RIbs isn’t a homonym for ribs. Ribs are just ribs.

Depends on if you are a cannibal or not.

I don’t think you understand the difference between the food ribs and the part of the body ribs.

Food Ribs are a cut of pork, unless you are in Texas, and must be slow-cooked/smoked. They require a good dry rub and/or barbecue sauce and are accompanied by some combination of steak fries, coleslaw, cornbread, or corn-on-the-cob. Without these, you are just merely eating the meat surrounding the ribs of an animal. The full meal is what is known as ribs.
