His name is Arnold and just wants to watch TV!

Didn't read, but I do know that those Vietnamese potbelly bigs can grow into really large boars. No tusks though.

Those things get HUGE.  So it's not like you can just pick it up and put it somewhere more convenient.

The solution?   Bacon.    Bacon is always the solution.

Oh no! There's 150 lbs of bacon running around my yard! Whatever shall I do?

OMNOMNOMNOM. Fark that noise, I'd get permission from the neighbors to discharge a firearm, set a trap, and have good eatin'. If the owner wants to get buthhurt, I'll remind him I could just call the cops for destruction of private property and whatever other charges can be tacked on for letting this animal run loose. Fark you, owner.

Exactly. Hold a BBQ for the neighbors whose yards he tore up.

You know they are not entirely made of bacon, right?

This is true.  They are also made of ham, hocks, loins, feet, ears, and a few other tasty things.
It still baffles me to this day, though, that some caveman or something looked at that animal and said, "I'll bet that is tasty in more than a few ways!!"

Thanks goodness for that caveman who was clearly ahead of his time.

We concede.  They are not made of bacon, they are made of deliciousness.

If I could only raise ONE kind of animal, it would be a pig.  I definitely dig on swine.

I was chased by two very angry chihuahuas for a block or so today on my morning run. I was terrorized.

There are pigs, then there are Vietnamese Pot Bellies. You may forget about the whole notion of 'bacon source'. My step-father bought one at a livestock auction for a dollar; some in the crowd were snickering. It was home butchered, later prepared for a meal.
The whole kitchen stunk. The 'flavor' was ghastly, just nauseating. Greasy & stringy. Huge food fail. Even the dog was loathe to consume any.

What do you think the Vietnamese bred them for? They sure didn't care about having a trendy pet.

There may have been some fail involved in your experience, but it wasn't simply because of the pig's breed.

Compare the headline:  You know you're living in a wimpy neighborhood if it's currently being terrorized by a pot-belly pig

To:  You know you're living in a wimpy neighborhood if it's being terrorized by a pot-belly pig

How many think adding "currently" makes them sound smarter?

I've debated this at great length and while I can not say that this is a permanent conclusion, factoring in the change of language over time, I can assert with some degree of certainty that I, for the time being, do not currently find this to be the case.

Then again, it does add a sense of action to the story. There is a pig, and it's terrorizing a neighborhood right the fark now, possibly with no intention of stopping. This is serious business compared to a pig that only goes on the occassional terrorizing spree but is otherwise docile.

My chair currently has arms.

Used to have one and they're not nearly as domesticated as you'd believe.

We kept ours on our screened in porch and it ended up ripping deck boards out.

So? You don't have to be a gourmet chef to know when food tastes terrible.
