I had a friend who used to make that joke last for about 20 minutes. Key word: HAD.

I think the author of the headline confused the word 'incredible' with the world 'mutant'.

"He was born in Sichuan Province in China on August 2nd."

Yup, sounds about par for the "ZOMG MUTANT ANIMAL!!!!!" course...

Is "incredible" a new synonym for "abomination"?

Over in two. Well done.

Well, it's either China or India....China it is.  And the worst part is that someone will probably make a point of eating the thing as is.

FTA : The piglet was born with six legs - the usual four

Note to self:  Pigs typically have four legs.
 
2014-08-12 02:23:42 AM  
It looks like the bonus limbs are loosely attached. I wonder if they could have snipped them off so the piglet could grow to normal size to get eaten.

Probably worth more on the open market in its freakazoid conjoined twin state, though.

I wonder if there's some vestigial second hoghead in there....creepy.

If this ever happens on a chicken maybe we can get some cheaper wing prices =)

We also had a Porktopus on my wife's farm several years ago.

It's not a major genetic change to generate extra digits (fairly common) or limbs (fairly rare).

(As an over-simplification) just need the 'stop' gene to activate a step or two late

And when get as much environmental pollution in many Chinese ag regions, no big surprise to see genetic disruption

Marvel would have you believe so in a universe or two.

TomD9938: FTA : The piglet was born with six legs - the usual four

And six is an odd number of legs for a pig to have.

The only number that is both odd and even is infinity.

Therefore, this pig actually had an infinite number of legs.

A wonderful, magical animal.
 
2014-08-12 07:09:59 AM  
Parasitic twin?

The two "extra feet" are at the top of the additional legs, so maybe this piglet just missed having eight legs.

Now go find me one with 4 bellies.

Wouldn't they want to encourage that?  I mean they freaking love eating pigs feet over there, more pigs feet!

Peggy: Doesn't anyone want breakfast? I have an egg and some M&M's. I could make an omelet.

Al: No thanks Peg, I'm still pleasantly nauseous after last night's feast of the three-legged chicken. Why would you buy a chicken with three drumsticks?

Peggy: Well, it costs 7 cents a pound. The one with two legs costs $1.19 a pound. Excuse me for thinking of our bankbook instead of our health.

Al: Didn't you think that just maybe there was something wrong when the label said "Chernobyl farms"? How many chickens have flippers?

Peggy: Don't blame me for that. I just thought it was an extra head. You liked it, didn't you Bud?

Bud: Well, it was tasty but hard to eat. I mean, every time I cut a piece off, it'd grow back.

Seriously, I am somewhat alarmed at the number of stories I have read recently about mutated animals.   Not just domestic or factory-farmed animals either.  They are reporting them in all countries, habitats and species.

Well, if their limbs and organs are regenerating, then we've got a neverending supply of food from one animal ala Christ and feeding the villagers! There is that pesky cancer, and possible radiation poisoning though..........

Wouldn't it be better to let the pig grow to adult size with the extra legs?  

Then you could lop off the legs and have a nice roasted pork leg and some pickled pig's feet without having to kill the pig.

Hell, if you want to be really weird, you can invite the pig to eat some too. Have the pig for dinner while you have the pig for dinner.

In case there is someone who didn't get the headline:

This traveling salesman is out in the hills and approaches a farmer to try to sell his wares. He notices a three legged pig hopping around in the front yard and asks the farmer about it. "That's no ordinary pig!" exclaims the farmer. "That pig is smart! We all owe our lives to that thar pig! Why, last winter we wuz all asleep and a spark from the fireplace caught the cabin on fire, and we would've all burned up. But that pig squeeled and beat on the front porch to wake us up and saved all our lives! And last sprang my son wuz a swimmin in the pond and took a cramp and woulda drown, but that thar pig come a runnin to the back fourty where I was a plowin and drug me by the overalls til I saw him and saved his life again!" "Wow, but what happened to his leg?" asked the salesman. "Given everything that pig has done for us, it wouldn't be right to just eat him all at once!"

What you are seeing probably isn't an increase in mutations but an increase in communication and reporting on the topic.

A decade or two ago nothing in rural China/India/Africa etc probably wouldn't have made it to any global news.
