In completely unrelated news, there will be a pork slider special at the clubhouse next week.

I hate that movie more than almost any other.

I knew it was crap without seeing it, but I was managing a movie theater in a hick town when it came out.

The line of redneck morons waiting to get tickets stretched to the end of the parking lot.

It was not a good night.

But it was a strong enough "this is my life now" moment to push me to go (back) to college.

My HOA only allows one cat, or one dog. Now I just realized that I what I want is a shiat pig.

A shiat pig, is a type of pig in Asia that lives beneath the village outhouse, and it lives of poop.

They're really delicious apparently.

Well, you could make a metric ton of sausage.

I know you're making a joke, because you think it's not true, but it's probably a good match for hogs.  A hog's skull is particularly thick in the front, and there are stories about bullets skipping off the bone there, but a head shot from the side doesn't have the problem.  I've shot them from the side with a .22-250, which is a similarly-sized but about 20% more powerful (moving faster) bullet to the .223 that an AR-15 uses.  The shot will instantly kill one, and not exit the head, which are both desirable traits.  I used a .44 Magnum pistol once (it can also be used in a rifle, giving it more power), and got an instant kill but the bullet easily exited the far side, and that can be dangerous.

Feral hogs are a serious problem in some areas, like where I lived at the time.

Gee, if only there were some ancient weapon that was designed just for dealing with such creatures...

Marshall says he called the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and the local police. The police said coming to collect the pigs wasn't their jurisdiction and the RSPCA would come and help when they could but they "were very overstretched."

The West Yorkshire Police not coming in to deal with pigs? Who would have guessed it

I love it how they always had smiles on their faces.

Just found plenty of adverts for micro-pigs as cute loveable house pets in that area.  All fail to mention that at 700lbs the adult version will weigh the same as a bear.

There's lots of Trump Golf Courses in the world if you want to test you hypotheses scientifically.
