It’s Pig Day

Some think I’m a pig, the MCP kind for the breast motion article yesterday.

This morning I received an email from a friend talking about the bad weather in the mid-west. She writes:

The Ohio farmer said his place was not flooded, but it rained so hard that it has pounded the ground into concrete. He doesn’t think the corn will continue to grow. He said his neighbor was wiped out in a tornado. 300 pound hogs just disappeared. Gone. The metal grain silos were chewed up into little 8 inch squares.

A pig that survived for 36 days buried beneath rubble in quake-hit southwest China on a diet of charcoal has been hailed as a symbol of the will to stay alive, state press reported Monday.

The pig, who weighed nearly 150 kilograms (330 pounds) at the time of the magnitude-8.0 earthquake on May 12, had lost two thirds of its weight when found last week, the Chongqing Evening Post said.

  1. Mmmm! Pre-smoked bacon!

  2. Charcoal huh?

    I’ll have to remember that when the famine hits.

    I like the notice at the end, but they will have to let him fatten up a bit and then as Max says: pre-smoked.

    Last year was the Chinese year of the pig. I think this is the year of the rat. Probably more rats survived the quake than pigs.

    I was wondering if it could be one of those florescent green pigs that China developed for stem cell research.

    Maybe that is how they found him.
