October 3, 2008: Friday Pigs
OK, it's Friday and that means a cute, cuddly, preferably edible, image.

I think pigs are adorable. I wonder why I keep eating them? I should stop.
xoxoxoBruce Friday Oct 3 09:21 AM
Because you know there's always another one...

Everyone with the blowjob jokes...sigh. I wish I didn't like cock so much.

Nay, nay, it was not a gender specific wisecrack.

I don't know man. They don't look too happy in those cages. Kinda creepy, vicious, and defeated all at once.

When I lived by a greyhound racing track, we used to bet on ones that peed or pooped on the way to the start gate, they always seemed to place or show. Wonder if it's the same for piglets?

I know someone in Germantown with a watch-pig in her yard. Damn thing attacks anyone who wanders too close to it's doghouse along the front walk.

For the pig races at the local strawberry festival every spring, the pigs race to the finish line for Oreos. I bet those pigs in the third picture are just reeeeeaally excited about cookies!

Yes, I'm hot to trot for Oreos, too... and Hawaiian Punch, back when it was thicker than cough syrup. My teeth would vibrate, but I wouldn't drift off and burn the couch or carpet.

I've seen the piggies in question in action. The show is run by a bloke by the name of Tom Vandeleur. Story goes that he's an Aussie pig farmer who discovered pig racing in the USA and brought it to Australia. He likes to wear big American style "cowboy outfits". When I saw the pigs they looked well cared for and keen to race / dive. My guess is that they get a tasty reward at the finish line and are racing for that. The diving pig definitely had her eyes focused on someone at the edge of the pool who was holding out a hand. Didn't look too keen to jump in, but the treats won her over in the end, and she got a snoutful as soon as she reached the hand.

Or maybe the older piggies "retire" from the track and eventually become trainers themselves, teaching the next generation of piggy runners how to do their jobs?
