9/2/2005: Pig race



We've seen this sort of thing before, but why not more of it? xoB and WaPo send along this item and it says this race took place at the Montana State Fair. No word on who the pigs are, or who won.

- pigs - wood chips + people + ice =

distraction is gooooood.

Reicarnation of Dale Sr.?
I like me some pigs. I've heard they are very intelligent. We had them when I was a kid but I hated them 'cause I had to carry food and water to them for half a mile.
Maybe I'll wait till tommorrow to cook those pork chops.

mmmmmmm pork chops.....

(said while drooling out of mouth in a homer simpson voice)



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Sep 2 06:47 PM

Oh dear, I'm sorry....I forgot to mention all the pigs won.



Promenea  Friday Sep 2 07:08 PM

Hey, those pigs look like they are moving really fast! Good pigs, good pigs of course they all won.



capnhowdy  Friday Sep 2 09:21 PM

And theyr'e off

I saw something similiar at the Arlington Co. Fair here in Va.
They had pigs racing, one was Brittany Spearibs, and Rosanne Boar,
Quite funny

Those pigs are really flying! - but then hey always said they would, one day...



Saknussem  Tuesday Sep 6 03:02 AM

Pigs in blankets?



Cyclefrance  Tuesday Sep 6 04:38 AM

Looks like yellow blanket was ahead but then started playing to the camera - while blue blanket definitely has a smirk of wry satisfaction on his lips as he takes the lead - who would have guessed that pigs could be so, well, human...? (apart from most of the Cellar members, that is...)



salinaspaul  Tuesday Sep 6 12:57 PM

Those are "Some Pigs!"



cjjulie  Wednesday Sep 7 01:26 PM

I actually saw a pig race once at a country fair in CT.

*insert redneck joke here*



wolf  Wednesday Sep 7 02:24 PM

That's okay. I saw a sheep shearing at the New York State Fair.



Trilby  Wednesday Sep 7 03:30 PM

That's nothing. I saw Junebug, Snake and Gypsy dueling beer cans at the bonfire. Really.

(is it considered 'dueling' if it's a three-way?)



BigV  Wednesday Sep 7 05:10 PM

[beavis]heh heh heh she said three way.. heh heh[/butthead]



Trilby  Wednesday Sep 7 05:31 PM

I see your three-way and up you an Applebee's Coupon.

Chicken.



BigV  Wednesday Sep 7 05:54 PM

I know its an old pic & an old thread, but both the picture and this post made me snort with laughter. I am getting suspicious looks and have tea in my nose. Thought that was worth reporting.


xoxoxoBruce  Monday Oct 3 07:42 PM

Then we can consider it a success.

NPR had a nice little story recently about a man in the pig-racing business.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=5534288

"Zach Johnson is in the racing business. But he doesn't race horses, dogs, cars or bikes. He races pigs. He takes his pig team and sets up Porkchop Downs on the county fair and carnival circuit, eight months of the year. His company, Swifty Swine Productions, has plenty of competition in the pig racing field."
