The article is sappy and touching- right until you get to the end and realize that they still intend to send the pig to market in a few months. Filthy humans.

The elusive Sappy tag is spotted once again off the coast of Nova Scotia.

(I can't farking remember the rest)
2002-10-02 04:28:22 PM  
Sappy for sure.
2002-10-02 04:30:59 PM  
Oh Oh Oh! Can I have it? It could be the first spare ribs I've made that had pork qualities but a beefy taste!


What the fark is up with the name of them people? I read it as dumbasses.

I'd like to be adopted by a herd of cows. They're just so warm and cuddly and look so cute when they chew they're cud.

Cows, adopt me!
2002-10-02 04:31:09 PM  
Pork chops and bar-bq ribs, with milk to drink !!!!! YUM !
2002-10-02 04:31:35 PM  
sappy, yet mouth-wateringly tasty.
2002-10-02 04:32:27 PM  
For now, the Dumases' young pig is content to mingle with the cows.

Now that insult was just uncalled for.
2002-10-02 04:32:57 PM  
his name is dumb ass, he he he
2002-10-02 04:33:55 PM  
their! their cud! oh my goodness, I can't believe I made that mistake.

*bangs head on desk*
2002-10-02 04:36:01 PM  
Mmm, Double western bacon cheesburger. Way better than the black stack from booger king. Too bad Carls has such sucky fries.
2002-10-02 04:37:45 PM  
The plural of Dumas is Dumases? Oh so close!!
2002-10-02 04:44:20 PM  
"Mr dumbass, I'm dumbass material all the way."

<not even an obscure reference>
2002-10-02 04:44:56 PM  
"For the last month, the female pig - it has no name - has been suckling at any of 10 cows in the Dumas field."

Wilbur Bessie Lunch?

"...course I heard of cows! There's a big group of them right over there!"

I am surprised the cows were able to fill out all the complicated adoption forms seeing as how they don't have aposable thumbs.

Where I work they have maternity leave (which I can't get cuz I'm a guy) and adoption leave (for when you are going to adopt). I wonder if I could adopt a nice spare-rib... err i mean pig and get a couple days off to boot. They didn't let me adopt a big screen tv though :~(
2002-10-02 04:58:38 PM  
someone tell a story about a pet pig, pleeeeeze!!

Re Repeat Repeat Repeat Doo-Dah Doo-Dah Re Repeat Repeat Repeat Doo-Dah-Dee-Dah-Day
2002-10-02 05:03:21 PM  
I wonder which Jarvis Bunghole Puller you would use for both a pig and a cow?

Baa ram ewe. To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true. Sheep be true. Baa ram ewe.
2002-10-02 05:11:02 PM  
The name is Dumas.
2002-10-02 05:13:37 PM  

Pork is a nice sweet meat.
2002-10-02 05:16:38 PM  
So will it be Bork or Peef?
2002-10-02 05:30:15 PM  
The name... is DUMAS!

Now that's thick-headed.

But not as thick-headed as a rich, smooth A&W!
2002-10-02 05:43:24 PM  
PETERNORTH??? Are you the famous porn-star??
2002-10-02 06:01:37 PM  
awwwww! he heeeeeeeee! oooooooooo!
[insert retching and hurling sounds here]

Is 'sappy' a new tag? Never seen it before.
2002-10-02 06:02:25 PM  
She runs away squealing from them. And she jumps up on people like a dog - and she weighs 200 pounds.

That sounds like my Ex.
2002-10-02 06:03:25 PM  
Arnold Ziffel is that you? Get away from them cows boy! You know they're a bad influence...
2002-10-02 06:10:37 PM  
Don't worry. They won't slaughter her. A spider will write "some pig" in her web over the pig, and people will be amazed.
2002-10-02 06:16:14 PM  
But they will slaughter her moments after some cow writes "some pig" using shiat.
2002-10-02 06:34:16 PM  

No, I am not. In fact, I had no idea how famous he was when I made the name. People think I'm dirty. They know more about Peter North than I do.

maybe I should have been Randy Spears?
2002-10-02 06:57:24 PM  
For the last month, the female pig - it has no name - has been suckling at any of 10 cows in the Dumas field. It goes from one to the other, lies down with them, eats grass with them, stays with them.

No kidding. Only a retard would name livestock. Farmers don't see their animals as pets. It would help if others could get that through their noggins.
2002-10-02 07:07:33 PM  
how cute! :)
2002-10-02 07:16:10 PM  
How the heck did they get the "Sappy" tag on this? Look in the list of tags on the Submit page, its not in there...
2002-10-02 08:01:49 PM  
whoa, there is no sappy tag. how'd they do that?

then again better not to encourage the stuff...
2002-10-02 08:46:24 PM  
how much actual bacon could you get out of 200 pounds??

could i get fries with that?
2002-10-02 09:10:57 PM  
One Week Later - Pig savagely mauled and eaten by herd of cows.
2002-10-02 10:14:47 PM  
"As the name of the farm implies, the Dumases butcher their animals - about 50 pigs a week and 15 cows."

^ There's the answer, the pig knows he's got a better chance of living if he makes like a cow! :)
2002-10-02 10:24:10 PM  
And she jumps up on people like a dog - and she weighs 200 pounds.

jesus farking christ... look at how small the pig is... and at 200 pounds
2002-10-02 10:34:40 PM  
I have been told that I am outstanding in the dumas field.
2002-10-03 08:43:12 AM  
"...the female pig - it has no name..."

hold it. i thought it was the HORSE that had no name. on which i've been through the desert.

never mind.
2002-10-03 08:53:17 AM  
The sappy tag is fondly remembered by all old school farkers.

Admins can still throw it in when appropriate.

Kudos, Admins.
