I haven’t done one of these in months — the recurring theme in news stories.
Today? Pigs. A woman on the north coast of New South Wales in Australia is being held hostage in her own home by a pony-sized pig. Wait, this update just handed me. The ordeal is over…. after 10 days. In the Twin Cities, the Science Museum is grossing people out with a live blog about a rotting pig. Insert your own blog joke here. You can put it on the board… The champion pig-caller in Idaho has been crowned. And her last name is Bacon. Why are there so many wild pigs in Wisconsin (insert Wisconsin joke here)? A man will go on trial next month for bringing wild pigs to western Wisconsin.
