Pigs are Pigs

Pigs are omnivorous, which means they'll eat anything... fruits, vegetables, hamburgers, soup, grass, VHS tapes, goats... anything you can think of. A pig would eat an airplane if he had the time for it. A pig would eat 62 hot dogs in ten minutes if it would get him on TV. A pig would even eat you if I needed to eliminate incriminating evidence after hitting you with my car (but I'm a better driver than that, so relax). Because pigs will eat anything they can get their snouts on, they have even occasionally been known to eat each other... which is gross. Then again, if any animal can be excused for exhibiting cannibalistic tendencies, it's a pig. Certainly they too must know what the inclusion of bacon does to a cheeseburger. So whatever it is pigs are eating, whether it be moldy bread, gum wrappers, Cajun shrimp, or each other, I hope they keep it up, because those things they're eating are the recipe for bacon. If "other pigs" is a necessary ingredient, then by all means, cannibalize away, you disgusting pigs! These arteries aren't going to clog themselves!

I've always been amazed by the logo for Famous Dave's for this very reason...celebrating cannibalism. That would be like McDonald's swapping out their golden arches for a picture of a cow eating itself. Yet again, that change alone could significantly decrease the mortality rate of Americans!

Fantastic insights, Shane. I will never eat bacon the same way again.

It's not surprising where our 3-year-old gets her love of bacon from, I guess.

I've never thought of it that way. It's kind of an ugly duckling story for bacon. Great pigs. As always, full of appeal.

I love it! Pigs may have a grueling appetite, but they can sure play a mean, toe-tapping banjo lick for sure.
Amazing characters, as usual.

I'm pretty sure that if someone created a bacon diet, I'd be on it. Love the banjo playin' pigs!

Great stuff - again. How about another drawing video? The last one's from quite a while ago. I'm missing it. Liked it watching you do some real magic. Greetings from good ol' germany Michael

As usual, when any legendary jug band jumps the shark, you can always expect the star banjo player to go platinum with a solo career.

Always love the pig drawings, Shane! Actually, the flying pig video is how I found this blog in the first place and began sharing it with all my friends. From now on, whenever I see a pig, I'll be sure to think of you ;)
