Just kickin’ back in the backyard, glass of iced tea, AND A MICRO PIG SLEEPING ON YOUR CHEST.
FAVE MICRO-FRAME™ :
It’s hot everywhere and folks, it ain’t coolin’ down anytime soon. So grab yourself a Porkster and a Pool, fill ‘er up, and then hop on in. Snort.

It’s July 1st! The summer is rolling right along, and THESE guys nose it! (Nose, geddit? Peeg snouts and- never mind.)
Anyway, these are the famous Swimming Pigs Of The Bahamas!
Mail Online says they will swim out to your boat, to see if you have anything good for lunch.
MO also adds, “Filmmaker Charles Allan Smith is now shooting a documentary that hopes to uncover how the animals first took to the water. ‘When Pigs Swim’ will follow the trail from the original swimming pigs.”
It looks like they’re doing (this is totally from MO:) the “Hog Paddle.”

What do you get when you shove one of those GoPro cameras in front of some camera shy Bebeh Mini Hoofsters?
Well, you get this!
The name of this Porkster alone should just pull you in, am I right? Si? According to this story in The Squid, Thimble The Mini Peeg can play piano and geetar. Don’t believe eet? Let’s go to the video.
[Name refers to a Soviet Dude from way back in the day -Ed.]
Well, well. Chris P. Bacon, you have a new pal Down Undah! This be Leon Trotsky, and as the last name implies, he can still trot with the best of ‘em. What’s the story here, Kyle B. of Edgar’s Mission? Wait, let’s do the video first. Pigster Prosh.

“We had a little piglet come to us last week that had been accidentally sat on by his mum..”
“..and broke his pelvis along with his leg.”
“While we wait for his bones to grow before he can have proper surgery..”
“…he has a little wheel cart that he uses to get around to keep pressure off his legs.”
Totally true! [Would we make up a day just so we could have fun with it? Wait- we would. Let me rephrase that. -Ed.]
So naturally, we present…..pigs in a blanket! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. This is Eric….
and Jane. Thanks to Anna S. for reminding us of the national holiday today…
…and to Meredith T. @ Farm Sanctuary.org for the ninja-quick turnaround.
“Buta to Otchan,” or “Pigs And Papa” is the title of a book by Toshiteru Yamaji. He spent several years taking these photos of a fellow named Otchan, who has 1,200 pigs at his farm in Marugame, a countryside city of Kagawa. Yamaji self-published the book and won the 13th Japan Self-Publishing Award Graphic Prize for it. You can find it on Amazon and Foil Tokyo. Way more photos here.
(Kinda reminds U of this story, no?)
