Word of the day: Pig

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.

      Whoa! The Science Museum’s pig-cam blog is awesome! Too bad it’s only at day 7. Could use higher resolution photos.

      I love blogs

      Joshua:

      If you glance around at one point they posted pictures from a digital camera rather than a webcam.

      It was quite disgusting… yet fascinating.

      It’s interesting to see the whole process. I mention it to people though and they just go “ew”.

      The Rotting Pig is the ultimate Blog address/name. P.S. at the infamous “Sensation” show at the Brooklyn Art Museum there was a horse carcass and some flies in a huge glass case-for weeks. Been there, got the T-shirt.
