October 26, 2007: Minipigs!



Chickenings suggested this item when it was a BBC story, and it took me this long to find a larger version of the shot than the usual BBC postage stamp.

Brits may already be familiar with the porkers in question. Apparently this is a commercial shot, but it turns out that we're looking at "full-size" miniature pigs, not piglets. It turns out that Pennywell Farm in Devon bred smaller and smaller pigs for nine years, until they settled on this pint-sized version.

It appears the Beeb has anticipated us:

Quote:
Mr Murray doubts if they will be appearing on restaurant menus.

"They are too small," he said.

"It would be uneconomic so it's unlikely they will be used for meat and there is already a huge amount of different pig meat available."
Well, that's for us to decide, Mr Murray.

A new alternative to lap dogs? At least they wouldn't shed.

Now those are cute. And I don't *do* cute.

They're going to need some very delicate herbs and spices. I see the vegetable has already been selected. Wouldn't have been my first choice, but there's nothing like a good culinary challenge....

How much for that piggie in the pumpkin



ZenGum  Friday Oct 26 09:32 AM

Recall the giant (1,000 lb) Hog a while back... and the giant pumpkins?
I'm imagining prize-winning enormous giant pumpkin, stuffed with giant hog, stuffed with giant pumpkin, stuffed with regular pig, stuffed with regular pumpkin, stuffed with mini-pig, stuffed with mini-pumpkin ... stuffed with bald guinea-pig ... stuffed with baby carrots ... stuffed with ...

Now we know where McDonalds gets their McRib sandwiches..

It's a piggy oreo.

Four and twenty piglets, baked in a pumpkin pie

When the pie was opened, the piglets began to sing

Wasn't that a dainty dish to put before a king?

Just seeing the title in New Posts I gave a little "Oh!" of happiness.
Oh the lovely lovely little piggies!
I want one for the house, so my cats can ride it up and down the stairs and then we can make it into little chipolatas when it's done.

Bless their little porky innards

Looks like they let the piggies carve that punkin before they climbed in, too. Definately not a contest winner.
