American Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it reminds me of an old campaign in which pork was referred to as the "other white meat."

Since it is highly unlikely that the American Thanksgiving turkey will ever be replaced by a Thanksgiving pig, this little fellow sends you his grateful thanks in the form of this card.

Did you hear this story?

A man was driving down the road in the country. He looked over and saw a baby pig in the field. He stopped and picked up the pig. He was driving around town with the pig in the car and a policeman stopped him.

The officer asked "Hey, What are you doing with that pig in the car?"

The driver said "Well, I just found the pig beside the road in the field."

The officer said "I want you to take that pig to the farm!"

The driver agreed to take the pig to the farm.

The next day the officer saw the two of them driving around again and stopped him. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO TAKE THAT PIG TO THE FARM!!"

He replied, "Well I did take the pig to the farm. We had such a good time we are going to the ball game now."

Have a fun day and week and thanks for looking.

hmmm --- If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Hi Silke

I've lost my voice, have a bad cold, & I'm disgruntled! But I love this shot which brought a smile to my face. Tfs!

...and drum roll for the kicker at the end of the story eh?:-) An interesting and creative notion but even on my present diet, I am not convinced. It's turkey for me...alas po' piglet..live on and get some of your joints oiled. Winter is coming!

Hahaha, Silke, a lovely pig - a little abstract and with cool eyes - I love it, thanks and greetings

HAHAHA! Great funny story Silke! HAHAHA! My mother has a magnet on her refrigerator that says, "Never teach a pig to sing, it wears you out and just annoys the pig" HAHA!
Very nice!

Funny little one!
I enjoy your story
But for me it remember me (for no reason) Green Jell song's Three Little Pigs. It's a heavy band with some other influence. Ho it was a band i enjoy a lot in the begin of the 90's. It could be very compatible with the sound from Rage Against the Machine by exemple. I take a look the video is on You Tube Just type Green Jelly and you will have a good laugh. They did a video like cartoon but it's made in plasticine. The story of the 3 littles pigs on a rock sound but different ending. :)

I'm happy to realise that some artist recycle the material to create art outside. By here i find sometime those art piece. Some are just weird. Other very nice....
I apreciate this original one who could fit well on many grass! :)
