Cute Overload :D
This is complete and total snout overload. How much is that pig LOL-ing? I bet that pig snorts when he laughs, too.
Holy bacon bits, Jennifer H.!
hmmm.. yikes! o.O
You can lick your own nose, and you can lick a pig, but you can’t lick a pig’s nose?
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww….that is sooo sweet!
This is so yucky. ewwww….
Piggie, stop that right now! You don’t know where that child has been!
Eww! Cute though.
Yum! There’s nothing like licking a pigsicle!
“Jack was bissfully unaware of the blackmail power his mother, father and future girlfriend would now hold over him.”
Oh, so yucky. Maybe if it was a cute little piglet.
Anyone see the “Dirty Jobs” episode where he goes to the pig farm and serves lunch?
My first ever “making the cut” on CO. I’m misty…really I am. I feel like I just won a prize.
I’m pretty sure no pigs were injured in the making of this snorgle.
Ok, EWWW but LOL!!! Do you remember YOUR first kiss?? :)
You know, no matter how many times you warn children that, yes, your tongue WILL stick to a cold pig, there’s always that one child who simply HAS to try it for himself.
um, i don’t know if that’s the best thing to be letting your child do…
“In a scene from the new, updated version of George Barnyard Shaw’s ‘Pig-malion’ a young Henry Higgins discovers Eliza Doolittle.”
I’ll see your “GAAAAAAAAHHHHHH” and raise you an urrrrrrrrgh…
I think it’s my lunch that’s being raised …
“George Barnyard Shaw” !!!
That WAS pretty good, Aubrey …
YUCK!!! Dunk that kid’s face in some hand sanitizer! Touching noses would have been cute, but the tongue action? Ewwww…
“Charlotte’s web…GONE WILD!”
As for the uncleanliness factor, I hear that kids who grow up around farm animals have better immune systems than city kids. But licking a pig’s nose? I don’t think I’d recommend it. Go play in the field some, but let’s keep our tongues in our mouths. Mleh! :P
In our over-sanitized world, I find this pic sort of refreshing… too many parents seem to want to make their kids’ environment sterile. And it’s a nice peegie.
Once that wee one is old enough to realize the ewwwww factor of that tounge to that nose he’s gonna spew.
Still, it is a sweet gesture/reaction & interaction to catch on camera.
Yknow there’s loads of bacteria and fecal matter all over that cute piggy’s snout.
I’m sure his mom will enjoy the upcoming diaper changes after he gets the runs from this kiss.
ew!! When I was a kid, I did everything to not get touched by moist pig snout
Oh, man. That is nasty.
Still cute, though.
The raw food movement’s version of bacon?!?
“a young Henry Higgins discovers Eliza Doolittle.”
Aubrey, wasn’t Henry Higgins the BEST?! And I believe it’s spelled Eliza Doolickle.
BTW, I hope that piggy washed his snout after this incident.
Heehee! That makes me giggle every time I look. And EWWW. I could tewtally see my daughter doing that someday. I’ve caught her licking and chewing on my pug’s toys (nylabones etc) several times lately. Gah!
Yech. Pigs smell so bad I don’t know how that kid got close enough for a sample. I gag in your general direction.
Wow. Kids really will put anything in their mouth.
Thanks for getting me to 5:00 CO! I’m goin’ home!
That makes my stomach turn…
Not cute IMNSHO, but rather gross! But, kids will do the darndest things.
This kid will have a super immune system.
Wrapping your kiddies in plastic wrap and coating them in sanitizer is a great way to end up with children suffering from all kinds of allergies and asthma etc.
Let the kids get dirty and swap spit with animals! Yay for kissing pigs! My own baby brother’s first french kiss was our yellow labrador. ;D
Signed half a name up there: jay. No po. Shoulda been.
–jay + the po
Yeah, Blue, I was going to mention French-kissing, but I didn’t know how to incorporate it into swine humor (aside from Miss Piggy and her French affectations…).
Seriously gross, and yet seriously cute. The pig just looks so HAPPY!
That’s just want I needed right now. I haven’t laughed that much in weeks. So cute!
Pigpen is bestowed with the first part of his future nickname.
I can just hear the parents. ‘Oh, look, he just loves the piggies. Get the camera’ ‘EEEEW!’ (Trying not to laugh) ‘Uh, well, I got the picture!’
That *can’t* be kosher! hee.
I’ve kissed men just like that one!! :)
All animals are kissable, but some animals are more kissable than others.
hehehe thats just toally anerable.
Pig: totally not cute
Kid: Completely not cute
But kid lick pig snout? Yup – anerable.
Not a kid fan. And my first reaction was, I admit, oh gross! But after reading other posts I have to agree – I’d prolly let my little one do this and laugh too. They both look sweet. ‘Specially the oinker! Cute.
That kid is well on his/her way to becoming a full-fledged hippie. !!!Down with cleanliness!! Stick to the man!!
Well now, that just has me wondering what a live pig snout tastes like.
Sure my first kiss was exactly like that. Something to be remembered always, yuk.
And then off to the store tasting candy and putting it back.
Cows and goats and other ruminants have E. coli; chickens have salmonella, but I honestly don’t think piggies are notorious for any of those infections. They are much more like us in their anatomy and such, and so things that would make us really sick would make them obviously sick. And that is a smiling happy peegie, and that is more than anyone wanted to know about animal-transmitted infections.
Laptops make it so much harder for one’s coworkers to see if one is really working…
Ugh! Ewwww! :-D
Although I daresay that pig’s snoot is probably cleaner than the kid’s tongue…
Yuck! On the brightside, that’ll probably turn the kid into a vegetarian in no time.
Kinda grody, yet not.
i almost vomited at my desk.
“Mom! It really does taste like chicken!”
Great, now alla the pervs looking for barnyard action are gonna find CO.
Peg of Tilling, best comment so far! You actually just beat me to it.
Maybe others would get it more if it were: “All animals are created kissable … “
Cheers, either way!
Scofield– :-p [snork]
Hope you’ve had better memories since then!
Hey, Nora …
” I’ve kissed men just like that one!! :) “
Posted by: Nora | Sep 21, 2006 at 03:32 PM
Me too … piglets are better
How licks does it take to get to the center of a pigsickle pop?
Ah – one
Ah – two …
Okay, who’s licking whom? It’s hard to tell.
Ta, shawnabunny. Shoulda checked the exact quote!
It taste like chicken!
Children of that age will put anything in their mouths, and as a parent, you just have to cringe, chuckle, and go on with your life.
When my boy turned 1 I did a beautiful black and white photoshoot with him in our landscaped backyard. In the midst of it, I found a pretty snail to take a picture of. A few minutes later, I heard a crunch. The boy had tried his first escargot.
Hahahaha, this is very funny. I just betcha the parent with the camera said “Aw give the pig a kiss” and the kid went SLURP!
And the pig went “Gitcher tongue outta my doze.”
There comes a time in every parent’s life when your kid does something this cute and you are thinking “I SHOULD STOP THAT CHILD LICKING THAT PIG SNOUT, but first I have to take the best photo ever”.
Nothing, not even the extra dark Godiva chocolate I just consumed has made me feel as good as the 5 minute laugh I just had.
Thank you, a donation will be forthcoming.
This is gross. There are diseases (does ecoli sound familiar?) that this poor child could get. Shame on all of you.
the piggie is cute…but ewwwwwww baby spit. poor pig.
Meh. I am sure the kid was fine. Pig, too.
My first (and continuing) thought was EWWWWWW! Kim H. — actually pigs do have problems with e coli. Piglets moreso, but big pigs can have it too. I just googled pig e coli because I remembered something about pigs and e coli from a summer job typing up research notes at a vet college, and well, after I googled, I learned more than I wanted to know. So my EWWWWW! stands. Even if it makes me a Nuffingham.
Oh my gawl. I so needed that. I laughed so hard I nearly choked! How adorable.
Then I scrolled down and laughed even harder at the alarmists wailing at the political incorrectness of enjoying photos of kids licking pig snouts.
And to Lori Magno… amen, Sister!
hmmm, looks like bacon,
snifffff, smells like bacon,
SLURP! Tastes like bacon!
It must be bacon!
Who needs spinach when you can get all the E.coli you ever dreamed of right off a pig’s snout. Parents, hello? So cute, not safe.
Oh come on! Like the parents could stop the kid from licking the pig! It must have been one of those lick..gasp! things.
I am quite sure they weren’t in the wings saying, “Why don’t you lick the piggie, hon?”
Precious. I grew up this way, and I turned out just fine.
oh lawd in hevvun, it’s not cute of me but I hafs ta protest! We’re heading for a major human disaster by becoming such germ freaks. Anyone know about the exponential increase in “allergies” amongst Americans? It’s huge. Keeping clean means you have zero resistance, poor natural immunity and so forth. Seriously people…get dirty and let your kids get even dirtier. It’s way way healthier. On the other paw: I hate the idea of licking a pigsnout but this pic is UTTERLY Qte!
“When should I stop sanitizing everything around my toddler?”
“When you see him licking a pig.”
Oh man, where has that snout been… and where has that TONGUE been…. I need to go lie down.
Ew! Giggle! EWWWWW. Giggle. EEEEEEEEW. SQUEEEEEEEE! Giggle.
ew, not cute.
And hilarious. Gross and cute and hilarious.
And, meh…*shrug*…couldn’t be worse than whatever germs a dog or another human might have. I know that human’s have dirtier mouths than dogs though, so: poor piggie!
Is this how you get swine flu?
I remember eating handfuls of dirt out of my sandbox when I was little. And sharing food with the dog, and kissing frogs, etc.. Never licked a pig, but that’s probably more from lack of opportunity than anything else. I’m still here!
Just to clarify: As far as I know, all mammals have E.Coli. Humans definitely do. It’s an important component of the lower intestinal tract. It’s when it sneaks into the upper intestinal tract that all hell breaks loose. Er, so to speak.
(Also: What a gorgeous kid!)
On the other paw, er, hoof, do you notice that the pig seems to be liking it? See the piggsmile? (yah, yah, I looked again. Trying to embrace the cute…)
Hogs and kisses,
Growing up on a farm we couldn’t find my younger brother one day…. Dad found him sometime later under the shearing shed eating “raisins”. Couldn’t have been too bad, he’s now 40 y.o & 6’1″.
LOL….great stories from all of ewe!!!
And there’s many strains of E. coli; the bad one that makes us sick is different that the basic model.
I wouldn’t encourage a kid to lick ANY farm animal, but I think that in a case like this you just have to fall over laughing and hope for the best. I don’t know that I want to live in a world where a kid can’t break away, once in a while, and do something utterly repellent and adorable at the same time, like this kid. Kiss a pig, eat the “raisins”, drink out of the dog’s dish…
I will keep smooching my kittehs, even if I do know perfectly well where that tongue has been. Ya gotta live.
Yeah, pretty much asking for a case of e. coli there. I figure this is just nature’s way of selecting for people who watch where they put their tongue.
Kinda hard on the kid, though. Feel sorry for ‘em.
Yeah, e. coli isn’t the most dangerous thing in the world. It’ll only make you sick if you, I dunno, ingest feces. Don’t worry though, it’s usually only fatal to people with weak or compromised immune systems. Like the elderly, or small children.
Like this little guy.
Aaron DeLay wrote, “Jack was bissfully unaware of the blackmail power his mother, father and future girlfriend would now hold over him.”
What girlfriend? Once she sees this, she won’t want to kiss him! Bleh!
Hey guys, read Sy Montgomery’s wonderful book The Good, Good Pig, Christopher Hogwood. Pigs are clean, very intelligent and affectionate. It’s the humans who force them to live in slop. Janet with Angus and Misha
Ew. There needs to be a new category: Cute or Gross? This is gross.
OMG Peeps! This is turning into INTENSE OVERLOAD. I’m guessing someone was photographing this adorable kid at the fence when he decided to do what boys do – something totally random like licking a pig snout. Stop with the e Coli thread – this was not an intentional act by someone’s parents, I’m guessing he wasn’t scooted toward piggy and told to make sweet love to the animal. It was just a fortunate funny snapshot. Live Love Laugh (at the Lick) and get over it.
Looks like the pig is enjoying it.
Looks like the kid is enjoying it.
Looks like the sandaled toe is enjoying it.
So whats the big … uh …
Blue and misscrisp, I am SO with you.
We Americans have become such germ freaks that our immune systems are not getting enough exercise and are turning against us (allergies). I’m not suggesting that we start living in squalor, showering once a month and deliberately exposing ourselves to horrible microbes, but we definitely need to relax a little!
Oh, and that picture is hilarious.
Ewww. This makes me want to go vegan.
Seriously, not Cute Overload’s best.
Still love ya though.
Definitely one for the “cute but gross” hall of fame. Or should that be “gross but cute”? I’d be more worried about piggy’s sharp teeth than cooties; husband once had a smallish pig bite right through his wellie boot. But looks like no harm, no foul here, so LOL!
Aaaw, look at this piggy’s sweet, kindly eye! How can anyone be disgusted by that <3
Also, anyone else notice the blurred hand on this kid? This was obviously a sudden movement. “Aaaawww- AAAAa!!”
Lol Bacon Bits?? I’m traumatized for life.
this is absolutely completely undeniably 100-per-cent-ly the most ADORABLE picture I have ever had the unbelievable good fortune to come across!! Cute Overload, I salute you! If you were here I’d kiss you on both cheeks!
It’s funny and cute.. but still gross considering what pigs like putting their noses in.
I’ll go pet a pig’s nose.. but the heck if I’m gonna lick it rofl.
I can’t wait to be a parent so I can experiance my child’s first gross out eat/lick moment heh
EEEEEEEEEEWWW GOD!! Funny though….XD
Awwwwww… and ewwwwww! (Maybe that could be the name of the “cute but gross” category). I can definitely see my 3-year-old doing something like this. Right now, we’re just working on getting her to not eat her own boogers.
regina: “Great, now alla the pervs looking for barnyard action are gonna find CO.”
Apparently you can also find that sort of thing from Danish gas stations. I found that out when I went on a bus trip (the only girl on a bus full of teenage guys) from Finland to Denmark.
EWWWW Thats like beyind disgusting that like disgustinified. or whateva ;)
thats SOMEHOW cute and at the same tim ei wanna be sick
Actually, I think the pig looks kind of like “WT*?”
pigs only stink when they’re kept penned in filth. and they’re smarter that dogs and can have a sense of humor. too bad bacon is so tasty…
jaypo, yes, got better memories, oh yeah. :)
I got vox blog, too!
Did anyone else not notice how *clean* that pen is? I seriously doubt that these pigs are wallowing in filth… that’s probably just dirt on their bodies and the kid’s just getting a good ol’ tongue swabbing of dirt and pig snot. LOL
It is gross, but kids will be kids. Cute (-ish) LOL!
Chill peoples, chill.
thats so disgusting. and really irrisponsible parents too.
Of all the pictures I’ve ever seen on CO, this is my absolute FAVORITE. EVER.
Sabrina: Get a grip. It’s not irresponsible parenting when you are in the process of taking an otherwise cute pic of your kid interacting with an animal and they do the 1) unexpected and 2) normal. Kids lick things. And pigs mouths and snouts, germ for germ, are cleaner and less germy than yours. Do you kiss your kid without having first rinsed your mouth with antibacterial mouthwash? Irresponsible parenting!
Simply Hilarious. Wonderful. Brilliant. I love it.
To all the uptights out there: Get Over It. Man, you shoulda seen some of the things my brothers, our farm friends, and I did as kids. We survived (and have no allergies).
I surmised when I saw: a) the contents of the post; and b) the number of comments, that there would be some sort of Commentroversy going on. It never fails ;)
Ewww, in such a funny way!
Theo (if you’re still checking this one), if you’re still having the feeding issues with your kittie, try fresh cooked chicken (preferably still slightly warm) broken into tiny pieces that can be easily swallowed. My kittie has stomatitis, and when he had his back teeth taken out, that’s all I could get him to eat. (He did the same thing yours did with tuna – just lapped up the juice and left the tuna pieces)
Good luck and hope you get a “very special delivery” soon!
My mom emailed me this yesterday- the little boy looks just like my son!
Maybe it would be disgusting if both the child and the pig didn’t look as if they were enjoying it so much. As it is, this is just a beautiful moment of spontaneous inter-species snorgling.
Have you licked a pig today?
Hilarious though, great pic.
Who am I to judge, they both look pretty damn happy!
This is pretty gross. Can you imagine the boogers. Gross. *waves at ceebs*
I didn’t catch it earlier, but does the other piggie look jealous to anyone else? He’s all, “Get offa my woman, you little twerp!”
I’d be more worried about “him” (I am guessing) instead of “her.”
That is so gross… cute? I think not.
i grew up on a farm and spent lots of time barefoot in the barnyard, playing with calves, chickens, kitties, dogs, you name it. i was and still am a very healthy person. no yucky diseases ever managed to catch me! my children grew up as townies and i was a “clean” parent. both kids have allergies and asthma. makes you wonder…
*waves at kittie*
I had to LOL @ “I gag in your general direction”
and I keep laughing every time I look at this pic.
Jack will find himself a good ole’ cute tomboy cowgirl who probably kissed a pig herself back in the day.
Wow…this is SO beyond not cute…..I gagged a little when I saw this. That’s disgusting, on the kid’s end as well as the pig’s. It looks like he’s french kissing the pig, and enjoying it WAY too much…
I remember my dad telling me about a kid he went to skool with, whose father was a doctor, and the kid was always washing his hands & the parents were really anal about him getting dirty, and he was the sickliest kid he knew.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve used this picture to smile and laugh in the last few days here in Manila.
THANK YOU CO!
Off camera Mom and Dad are gasping with laughter/horror.
Wonder what a pig snout tastes like?
everyone, please notice that he’s licking the pig’s nose, not his mouth, which is below the snout and firmly closed. i can picture the piggy saying “I don’t french kiss on the first date!”
I’d rather kiss the pig than the child. I’m destined to be a stinky cat lady who all children fear when I’m older. I personally can’t wait ;)
I’m just wondering about the kosher rules for this….are LIVE pigs kosher?
I first went “EEEWWWW!” but then I realized it was cute they way they are enjoying themselves. And really, licking a pig’s snout isn’t that bad. Now, if he was licking the pig’s arse I’d say we had a problem!!!
BTW, what is far more gross is people who let their kids crawl all over the ER floor and eat things off of it. Um, hello… ill people all around…
This is too cute!!! I can only imagine the look on Mom and Dad’s face as they try to decide whether to fall on the ground laughing or get a bottle of water stat. BTW in Savannah every year they have a “Kiss a Pig” contest… so this isn’t the only kissing of swine going around!!!
…not that I a) fancy animals or b) despise children. I just get on better with animals and think that most children are a bit rubbish.
Someone mentioned the incredibly clean pen the pigs are in. OMG! Are our pigs all going to become immune-ly challenged now that we’re keeping *them* too clean? Find some muck, piggies, quickly!
My first thought upon seeing this was, “That piggy looks so happy!” And that’s still my thought.
If that was my kid, the pic would be framed and placed in a high-visibility area for the rest of his life. Heh.
My little brother almost died from e.coli (like ‘last rights’ almost died) when he was 6 months. However it was because it is a bacteria naturally found in our own bodies and his had multiplied because of a urinary infection, NOT because he had licked an animal.
Gross but HI-LA-RI-OUS.
James – well put. Adults put WAY grosser things in their mouths than a piggies nose…
I think this photo is headed to the “Cute or Sad?” collection, or at least should be.
/boring lecture commences here/
OK licking a piggy won’t give you the strain of E. coli that makes people so sick. That strain lives in the guts of cows. Pretty much most mammals have E.coli but only one strain makes you horrifically sick.
Salmonella is from chicken.
A pig just does not carry many diseases that make us sick. There are only two, that i can think of Swine flu and Trichinosis both of which are pretty rare now adays and the latter is a food bourne pathogen rather than something you catch from a live animal vector.
/end boring lecture part/
Wuv Twue Wuv
I lurve piggies and have petted and kissed ‘em – but have never licked one on the snout.
If this was my kid I wouldnt show him the pic at all on his wedding id give it to his wife. Im pretty sure they told him to give the pig a kiss and he ended up licking it
Yay for lectures and learning stuff and just chillin’ a bit!
Hee, Laurie C! I have goat and chicken muck I can send to these pigs in need! Stat!!!
Can I borrow the pudding pult??? *ducks*
I think it’s absolutely hilarious, and my Mom (the pig fanatic) would probably melt into a puddle of squee if she saw this!
Yes, it’s kinda gross, from a grownup
s point of view. But when he was two, my boy ate a beetle grub and he did just fine. And that wasn’t the WORST thing I caught the kid putting in his mouth. He’s currently a healthy 4 years (and 3 days!) old and thriving, has yet to suffer an earache or anything worse than the occasional tummy upset, and plays in the dirt every chance he gets. If I caught him kissin’ a pig I’d probably laugh mystlf into a month-long case of the hiccups, and save my worry for a genuine crisis!
Whoops, hit the Enter key where I shoulda hit the apostrophe instead. Sorry about the weird break there… :-/
I got in trouble for licking the cat when I was a kid…I wanted to kiss her the same way she kissed me. It made perfect sense at the time. (and I turned out fine, with only the occasional hairball gacked up now and then.)
Just a general question for all those certain this is terrible parenting — how old are your kids?
It’s very cute :D Sure, its not the cleanest thing, but kids need to get some germs to build their immune systems up. My Natural Sciences prof said people are so scared of germs now, they’re actually hurting childrens immune systems by not exposing them to some dirt ;P
Hahha Tilly, I am already well on my way to what you are describing. 37, no kids, (no cats though) living in a ‘hood full of kids that like to play all over my yard, driveway, porch…must*refrain*from*hollering*
cuz I actually like all the kids in the hood, (minus one or 2) I just don’t prefer them on my property. The cats, though, I try to get to come hang out with me!
I still am laughing every tme I look at this pic!!!
I’m perfectly willing to agree that we coddle kids too much, and we’re too concerned about germs, and that kids lick and eat and handle all sorts of gross things. That doesn’t mean I have to think this is cute. Could we have some kittinz? or wombats? or alligators? or somethin’?
Meg, please get this kid out of the top spot already. We don’t come here to look at human babies…
Hey, D2D, you just reminded me, when my daughter was two she used to pick up June Bugs and kiss them. Lips closed, though, thankfully.
She is 21 now, and has no ill effects.
Ya know what, every single time I drag my hubby over here to see a CO picture he says, “there’s that chick’s boobs again” I never even NOTICED the chick’s boobs, but since he has pointed them out so often they are distracting me, now. AND making me want to buy a teeshirt!
I think I’m going to vomit.
you know what? i bet the kid’s perfectly fine, no salmonella or “runs” to be found… all you anal-retentive germphobes need to get a grip! cute, plain and simple.
the more i look at this pic, the more i love it. wish it was my kid. :o) what a cutiepie. doing what kids do best; which is to say, whatever seems fun at the time.
OMGBBQ! This is pic is hilarious.
Back in my 4H days, the county fair held a fundraiser where kids and leaders from the livestock clubs were picked to compete for the honor of kissing a pig at the grand finale event. One year I was somehow ‘chosen’. My brothers suddenly turned charitable and emptied out their change jars and bribed little kids to hit up everyone for donations to my ’cause’. Alas, I didn’t win (for lack of trying).
My upbringing did, however, entail a lot of cow snot.
p.s. Pigs wallow in muck and mud because they don’t have sweat glands. It keeps them cool.
Laurie C.- LOL! way to lighten up all our pontificating on being immune-ly challenged.
Most girls will kiss a few pigs… before they find the guy who is RIGHT for them. This cutie-petootee could at least see what she was getting into. Often with the human form, ya just don’t know they are PIGS, till much later…
lol Aaron DeLay. I was thinking the same exact thing. This picture will haunt him for the rest of his life. It IS adorable, though (in a gross way).
Okay – I did something different. I started scrolling down BEFORE the pic loaded, and went through all the comments and commentroversies (James – you are *wonderful*.)
Then I scrolled back up to look at the picture – and SCREAMED in delight.
I don’t think I would ever lick a pig’s snout myself, but an exposure to dirt once in a while is good for the immune system. And that kid’s on a farm, NOT in a polluted city, which means he’s gonna have a better immune system than most of us here, pigs or no pigs.
Such a shweet picture! They both look so happy…..and as a mom of 3 kiddos and lots of pets…..get a grip already about the germs!! Jeesh peeps……way to harsh a CO buzz! I LOVE this pic!
Casey – LMFAO!!
I love the pigs ears!
Some how this just seemes yucky…wash that kids mouth out please!
Holy bacon bits, indeed, batman! lol
It’s a really good thing that pigs don’t carry salmonella….
it’s making me laugh all the righteous people trying to get all the people that thinks its dirty and vile to change their minds! we have a right to our opinion too. and fyi my kids are nearly teenagers. they had to close the local petting animal park here because kids kept catching illnesses from just touching animals with their hands. it is dirty.
Aaron DeLay wins the thread.
“What do you mean that’s not an ice cream cone? I’m going to have a lick just to be sure….”
Please take this off the front page. This seriously makes me ill. Now I’m going to have to wait for a week for the durned thing to scroll off so I don’t have to fight my gag reflex & miss the actual cute pics.
That’s about as sanitary as licking a dog’s ass. That pic is totally not cool.
Thanks for letting me win!
“Wilbur! I know you’re a different kind of pig but this is too much! What will Charlotte say?”

The pig appears to have a very gentle expression. This pic is cute, sweet, and little icky, but I’m not massively grossed out like other folks. I get more grossed out when people let their dogs lick their mouths (and I have two of the best dogs evar).
yes, everyone has a right to an opinion, and to live their lives in a constant state of fear, anxiety, and/or obsession-compulsion, for that matter. good luck with that, germ-freaks!
pfft – you can get ecoli from just about anything these days. Actually the presense of the pig mucus makes it safer. He’s more likely to get ecoli playing “hide ‘n seek” in the bathroom.
It’s no biggy and I declare this picture CUTE! ;)
Plus some of the cheeky comments have had me laughing for the last couple days.
I don’t care, I still think this is absolutely putrid. I’m in COMPLETE agreement with Meep, GET THIS OFF THE FRONT PAGE NOW.
Even forgetting that pigs root in their own feces, it’s not the germ factor that makes me feel disgusted, its the fact that THE KID IS MAKING OUT WITH A PIG’S SNOT-FILLED NOSE. This is perverse and inappropriate, and having a weak stomach, have nbot been able to eat after seeing this.
I won’t be back to CO until this is off the front page ~_~
That is one happy pig!
Meg, it’s your site. If you like the pig smooching (like I do), keep up the good work. Maybe all the naysayers who threaten to boycott will make their own cute sites…well, think about it, right up until they realize all the work it takes to create (and more importantly, MAINTAIN) a site. Long live Meg and CO!
Meep and Pillow – see you in a week.
Oh, and do you have sites people can visit and tell you what to do, what to say and what to show? Myself, I usually spare myself the drama and don’t visit sites I don’t like. Just a hint…
What’s that Lassie? There’s a fight brewing at CO? Quick, call Cujo and get Benji on the line. It’s go time…:)
I didn’t read all the comments. I just knew that people would freak over this. I’m pretty sure that kid is going to survive. People are way too freaky about germs these days.
Now, if he was holding a bag of spinach, well, then there would be a problem.
Love the piggy pic!
What were the parents thinking, not only is that pig dirty, (it roots around in the dirt and eats garbage with its snout) BUT PIGS CAN BE DANGEROUS–THEY HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO ATTACK HUMANS. That is child abuse.
Barbara – it’s all in how humans behave around the animals. You must respect them and understand natural behaviors. Yes, they will attack humans if they are protecting their piglets or feel threatened.
There’s nothing more dangerous than a momma sow who thinks you are too close to her babies. A mad pig can eat a full grown cat in the blink of an eye. (Sorry, I’m full of brutal animal info today).
Relax, this pig isn’t going to be able eat the child through the fence, even if it wanted to.
(I guess there are a lot of things that could be more dangerous than a mad she-swine. Just remember to not bother her and her brood. She’ll move faster than you would ever give her credit for.)
Excuse me….GET THIS OFF THE FRONT PAGE NOW!..whine, whine, whine… It just seems so rude to be yelling at MeggieMoo for posting a picture she thought her peeps might enjoy. I really don’t get it. Isn’t there enough out there on teh intarwebs to get in a huff about….without bringing it onto this wonderfully, cute overloaded site?!
When a pig licks a child, that’s not news. When a child licks a pig, that’s news!
I’m giving Barbara Cushman and Pillow the benefit of the doubt that they’re just trolls. Otherwise, BC would be dumb enough to think it is child abuse for parents to let their kid play with a “dangerous” animal *through a fence* and Pillow is disturbed enough to find something sexual in a baby licking a pig’s nose.
LOL sarkat! Another Terry Prattchet reference methinks?
Seriously, I think there are some people who would be seriously freaked out by the normal everyday stuff that happens in a farm-yard. Anyone else have a cow slime-sneeze into their mouth before? :D
All animals root around in their own feces! Dog licks are just as bad in that sense because the DO lick their own butts, even if we don’t. ;)
Pigs are on the cleaner end of the scale and these ones appear to be housed properly, which means they aren’t forced to lay down in mud and crap. Like any other animal, if they’ve got the room, pigs’ll go in one area and not sleep there.
Shall we get in to what so many of our “oh-so-cute” little rodent friends do with their poopies?
One word peeps: Corprophagia
Google it and you’ll se a lot in their about dog and pet rodents. :)
It’ll be off the front page really soon and you already have to scroll down to get to it. No bigs.
that pigs snout looks cleaner than other things children have licked. Ok several misconceptions. Pigs are not dirty. My sister’s pet pig used to use the litter box. Pigs prefer to be clean. Also the overcrowding of the cities seems to me to be much more germy than the clean country air. Fresh air and sunshine seem to me to be cleaner and more antiseptic than the city life.
mmmmmm smell that dairy air.
sorry couldn’t resist.
oh and best way to get stuff off the front page is send in tons of cute pics for Meg to post.
Although out of sheer spite, I’m kinda hoping Meg takes the weekend off and doesn’t post anything for a few days…
Can you dig the leetlist smile on that piggy’s mouf?
He LOVES baby licks!
Not only was this my first posted submission to CO, it was full of commentroversy:) WOW!
What a bunch of loons out there. Theriouthly.\
On an unrelated note, there is a funny set of pics I sent meg a while back of my lab puppy in a pair of 3 sizes too small vicky’s secret panties. They were hilarious.
Apparently….I’m just one huge pervert. Babies licking pigs…puppies in panties. Oh dear. I probably need counseling.
PS STOP TELLING MEG HOW TO RUN HER SITE.
This is a nice picture. I’m enjoying the stray sandaled foot in the corner, as well. And as for the lab in panties – are we then that far away from boxers in…boxers?
Jenn – I love the pic…you perv you!! I’d probably LMAO over the puppy in panties too!
ka9q’s wife – that’s the feeling I got from the picture….fresh country air and sweet innocence! I’m stuck in a dirty big city & wish I was back in Texas with our horses in our backyard! Emmm…breath it in!!!lol
(If you have a vox blog you should post the puppy pic there. I’m trying to learn my way around there & join the neighborhood!)
Love the pigture, Jenn! It’s completely harmless and wonderful.
Nuffs, bye, good riddance.
Lol…puppies in panties! Can’t wait!!!
Jenn – you are a hoot! Do post the puppy panty pic.
I love the pig pic. Yay, livestock!
People get so upset over such minimal things.
Hello. Remember when you were a kid? Yes? Okay. Did you not have a tendancy to stick anything/everything in or near your mouth? The kid is fine. It’s a bit icky, but it’s certainly cute (LOOK AT THAT PIG), aaannddd it’s HILARIOUS, so just calm down.
Cuteoverload is not the place for e-drama, and yet people on here seem to LOVE it. Wtf, folks. No need to get your internet panties in a bunch.
I think it’s adorable. And what a cute kid!
How about a nice treyf kiss for Rosh Hashanah?
L’shanah tovah, y’all.
Megster – I think this beautiful image should be turned into your banner. CUTE kid, CUTE pig, crazy @ss crazy peeps writing in – you are totally so popular!
Jenn – thank you for making my day yesterday. You rock as hard as C.O.
Um, everybody, lets turn this vehemence toward something important – like stopping a war, homelessness or hunger.
Oooo, yes, Lori Magno, let’s stop a war!! Seriously!
*Adjusts her internet panties*
I can’t even begin to read all the comments.
The kid has a really happy or contented or *something* look on his face. The pig:s just freaking happy he’s not being sliced into bacon.
All seems well in this photograph.
Does anyone have a photo of an Emu in *internet panties*? Something as cute as the topic at hand?
The pig is pleased.
Hmm… what IS the record for the most posts after a picture. I think this one beats the “hemp bunnies” pic. ;) :p
LOL! That kid is licking the pigs nose, ROFL.. Kind of gross but it’s still cute.
What is wrong with everyone? Just because this pic is on the cutest website in the world doesn’t mean that it is cute! It is actually really gross. I feel really sorry for the baby. I hope the baby dosen’t get any disease.
The more I see this picture, the more I love it.
i actually love pigs. they can be very sweet if they are raised in the company of people.
That said-Doodalalala, I had my stomach pumped twice as a kid for eating stuff that i should not have. When i ate the glass xmas tree ball, they couldn’t pump my stomach and had to feed me bread and milk. Kids survive all sorts of crazy stuff.
Jenn if you need a vox invite i have a couple still.
Wolfwhocriedboy – the tops is over 1000 and featured a baby human as well. I’ve seen it referenced better than I’ll do it justice, but what do you think about babies and kittens together? I’ve been warned not to read all of it, so I haven’t, but I hear it gets pretty nasty. Enjoy!
Hahahaha…it’s the baby nawming on the kitten tail, I think. It got completely outta hand! ;)
Haha, aw no!! Tragedy!! Some vacuous idiots have been put off their food because the pig licking picture makes them ill and they’ve threatened to ne’r visit the site again – WHAT EVER WILL WE DO!!???!?!!!!?!?!!!!!!!
ElfOwl, my sentiments exactly. Don’t know whether to laugh or say EWW, so I just do both! :)
AliceBlue, your story about licking your cat ’cause you wanted to kiss her like she kissed you is probably the cutest thing I’ve heard all day. Awww!!!
I do think we over-coddle our children these days. From sanitizing them to death, to not using red pens when we mark their papers in school, to not allowing games like musical chairs and dodge ball to be played because they “single kids out”…we’re raising a generation of wimps, people! How are they going to take care of us in our old age if they won’t even be able to take care of themselves?!
My vote for this pic is cute. I may go ew, but I’m still giggling, so it’s cute nonetheless. Kids will be kids and kids will do icky things. Live with it.
Okay, this thing is growing on me.
Look Mom! Hot Dog! (Needs mustard.)
Nicole — red pens are bad? Since when?
I’m in the “HAHAHAHA!!….ewww…” category.
As for red pens, it’s true – we teachers have been encouraged to use purple or green by some. I think it’s absurd, and I LOVE using my red pens. I even bring red pens to my classes so my students can correct their own work. They love it.
*sighs* Every time I get comfortably lurked, some new controversy must arise.
Can’t you kids keep the room clean? I keed, I keed.
Jenn, that picture is beautiful. As many others have explained, there is no imminent danger here. Take off you flame retardant panties and breath!
Rampant misuse and overuse of antibiotics are going to kill us all. We are dirty creatures, same as any other. Over sanitization is a prime culprit in the near epidemic instances of asthma and allergies. Our own immune systems are turning against us. We are getting weaker and the bugs are getting stronger. Human technology has allowed as to devolve to more feeble forms, and many seem bent on encouraging it.
Spray your Raid and apply your hand sanitizer. The bugs are laughing, and bidding their time.
P.S. It’s Meg’s damn blog and she will post what she pleases. Deal with it. I suspect she is having a fine chortle over the controversy.
Amen Oceanic! Preach-it ;)
AmyH I’ll have to look that pic up. If it got someone’s up-tight panties in a knot it’s worth thre read I figure.
How did I miss this?
This picture reminds me of one of my sister and I at our great-aunt’s dairy farm, when we were about three and five. My sister let the newborn calves suck on her fingers, but I was convinced they’d bite me. I didn’t listen when everyone told me they didn’t have teeth. In the picture I look totally disgusted that I have cow spit on my hand at all.
I love it.
To my knowledge I never licked a pig snout, but between the cows, chickens, horse, rabbits (and raccoon as a pet) I crossed paths with plenty of ‘yucky stuff’, and lived to tell the tale. It wasn’t child abuse, it was just a fact of life. Kids will be kids…..and kids and animals together are cute:)
Good God, people, I’ll lick each and every oneaya!
I can’t believe people are making such a fuss over this wonderful pic!
I’m still laughing at how the one woman could consider it sexual!! How screwed up is that?
Wonderful piggy-lick pic! I’ve been showing it to my family every chance I get!
My reaction was hahahahaha! Ew.
I’ve never laughed so hard at a photo before. Thanks for sending that one in!!
That’s just plain disgusting. Instead of taking a photo, I’d have washed that kid’s mouth with soap. Don’t his parents know that pigs carry parasites? That snout was full of crap.
omg that is so cute – i’m not sure who is more germie? the kid or the pig. but i bet the pig snout tastes good – nice and moist and warm and piggy-licious.
Snout & Snot
This pic is absolutely beautiful and just plain makes me happy!! Jeez, people, lighten up and recognize that mankind thrived beautifully well before the world of hand sanitizers. Sheesh.
I love the joy and sweetness of this pic, and I love that it reminds me of that raw, visceral, “I can’t stop giggling because I’m so incredibly happy to be alive in this world” feeling I had as a child…and, on a good day, as an adult.
Awesome picture — and totally off the chart on the cute-o-meter!
O M G…..I am gonna die laughing here.
the baby is cuter than the pig. its so random that the kid would do that—- adorable.
This manages to be both incredibly cute and a little bit icky at the same time! Love it!
Oh Gawd! The cutest picture that makes me go squeee is back!
Wait, that didn’t sound very manly at all…
This picture is really discustingly cute!!
sorry if this has been said, but i love how amused the pig looks.
I thought my wife was going to pee her pants LOLing at this.
gross..I wouldn’t let my kid do that
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
If that was my kid i would have her suck on a peice of soap all day!
Or i would just tell her to get her tounge replaced. Because you dont know were that snout has been (LOL!).

were the parents not there at the time because
THAT IS JUST NAAAAAAAASTYYYYYYY!!!!!
ITS JUST LIKE HERE WHY DONT YOU GOT PICK UP THAT SLUG OR WHY DONT YOU GO PICK UP THAT DOG DOODY AND MAKE A PIE OUT OF IT (dont eat it afterwards!)
And in a creepy and disquisting way that is kindof cute…………………………
I am sure that the pig enjoyed that moment of romance!!!!
heres a TIP:NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!!!!!
