Comedian Jim Gaffibacon, er, Gaffigan does a great standup routine about bacon that includes a bit on how pigs are superior to dogs in that when a pig dies you can have everyone over for a barbecue.

Here's the bacon bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaK9bjLy3v4

Cute when teacup sized piglets but they still grow to 90 lbs. Small for a pig but big for a house pet.


(Yes, I'm sure your german shephard, rottweiler, great dane is heavier. I didn't say too big, just big. I.e. these pigs would more similar to owning a large dog than a teacup terrier.)

My wife is a Filipina. Dog or pig, same difference. I have it on very good authority that short-haired dog tastes better than long-haired dog. Don't ask my why.

If we bought one of those little pigs (ain't gonna happen), the perfect name would be Lechon.

Word Verification: crowily. When the "Free Willy" campaigners saw the orca do poorly in the wild, they ate crow. Crowily.

No, Professor. It is forbidden to eat a beloved pet. Instead of thinking food, when Babe walks around you should be expressing your love for him. And don't forget to create A Trust in your will to provide for Babe's continued care, or he probably will be eaten by the other jealous heirs. Pig Love is not always accepted.

Because the piglets are intelligent and bore easily, she won't sell them to anyone who can't be home all day to entertain the critters.

My pet's job is to entertain me. And to kill rabbits. http://class-factotum.blogspot.com/2009/06/chats-du-jour-mighty-huntress.html

You're not talking about boyfriends, are you? If so, then sadly, no.

Unless you live in Wisconsin.

You can't eat a dog or other pet if let it live long enough to die of natural causes. The general rule is they become dinner when they stop being cute.
