Trig, Track and Oink go to Bristol.
Pigs are big news these days and The Merkin was truly prescient in his juxtaposition of beauty and lard (particularly bellies) in a previous posting.
Just a coincidence, perhaps.
Fair enough, the pig was not wearing lipstick and should you be seized of the mistaken belief that pigs never fly, then it is just possible that Grannie Palin may one day have her finger on The Button.
However, once the pig is out of the poke you can't get it back so easily.
And just to show how absolutely dangerous pigs can be, a cautionary tale from a land down under.
'A pig the size of a Shetland pony has trapped an Australian woman in her village home, the national broadcaster reported Tuesday.Caroline Hayes, 63, has tried leave her house in Uki in northern New South Wales to use the outdoor toilet but says the animal has bitten her and shoved her back inside.'
Pork Chops for thought, eh?
