Pigs have become most fashionable this year. Maxwell, the Geico pig has three commercials. Miss Piggy of The Muppets returned for a new movie and dozens of personal appearances (Moi?), Hamm reappeared in Toy Story 3 last year and Piglet never went out of style as Winnie the Pooh‘s sidekick.
Pork is moving closer to home. I heard yesterday that the Jog ‘n Hog hits the peninsula Saturday, June 16 at 8:30am. For more info please see jognhog.com! The Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog starts runners out at Beach l for a 2-mile jog to Beach 6, where they pig out on a half-dozen pepperoni balls and then jog back. Jog ‘n Hog supports The Erie Community Blood Bank.
Pigs are always worth some laughs. For some of Miss Piggy’s infinitely funny quotes, check out thinkexist.com. One of her funniest: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.” To see Miss Piggy in one of her finest futuristic moments, check out a “Pigs in Space” episode from Swinetrek skits on The Muppets.
Everyone loves pigs (including pigskin and bacon). So ham it up, and wee wee wee all the way home.
