Is this an euphemism for a sex act?

Pigs are surprisingly clean animals.  They can easily litter box trained since they always poop and pee in the same spot.

Stop with the bacon already. Just, STOP!

Though billed as "mini pigs" when he got them five years ago, Cholula and Runtly now weigh in at 200 and 70 pounds, respectively.

70 pounds at 5 years sounds like a mini pig to me, just saying.

Yes. Check the urban dictionary.

Person on the Internet: "OMG BACON NOM NOM I LOVE BACON"

Same person in real life: "Yeah, bacon's pretty good I guess."

*checks*

Of all the things you'd think was in the Urban Dictionary, it's not there.

I'm disappointed, actually.

I'd love to have a mini pig.  They're adorable, they're smart, and, in the words of Jim Gaffigan, when it dies, I could have a barbecue.

Common practice in barns is if you have pen with straw bedding, spray some water down in a spot on the straw.  Since they prefer to lay down on dry straw, they will make the wet straw their waste area.  We just had cement floors that were slightly angled into a slatted area so all the manure drained into the pit (of course, you would still have to get in there everyday and scrape the floors)

Hogs can be trained just as well as a dog can.  I took hogs to the fair and the year that my brother won Showmanship the girl who came in second had her hog trained to sit, stay, roll over, and play dead.  She also had him trained to run an obstacle course (she had a better trained hog, but my brother was the better showman)

Of course, at our fair, you don't get to keep the animal after the sale (all hogs are supposed to go to slaughter).  Last I saw of the girl, she was bawling her eyes out.  Which is why you don't get attached to your project, because in the end, it's destiny is to be bacon.

We would take our fair hogs out every day before fair for about 4 months and walk them.  Eventually, they came to the point where they could walk themselves due to learning the path.

//won showmanship and outstanding exhibitor one year, and my weight class, but never Grand or Reserve (my brother won reserve twice though)

I remember a few years back when New York started the smoking ban and the cigarette tax hikes that this wouldn't be the end. And here we are; we bare witness to the growing intrusion into personal choice. I'm no right wing nut, but the question is still there; do you think this will be the end?

Fixed that for you, subby.  New York City should always be referred to as New York City, not simply New York.  The state is New York and should referred to as New York, and yes, I believe all New York, New York addresses should be New York City, New York as well.

Also, unless you're a farmer, owning a pig is weird.

I always wondered about what people fed indoor pet pigs.  I guess they make pet pig chow or something.  You can feed them garbage, but that practice is kind of archaic, since most modern farmers feed them a mixture of things (we did corn (filler), soybean meal, and supplements (a mixture of vitamins and minerals, but mostly protein).  The "fat hog" is not optimum anymore (some people still do it) and most modern swine are leaner and have better muscle definition then their ancestors.

Yep. Just a matter of time until someone gets butchered by the Pig Police.

So do you have a litter box in the middle of the floor because that's where Piggy craps?
Also, congratulations on finding a pet that stinks more than a cat.
