A while back, in August, a wild-pig wrestling competition in Northern Montana had to be cancelled after only 1 pig could be found within the 10-mile fee range property along the Marias River, where the boars are usually captured for the event.

 

Well, pigs can be very critical, as George Orwell indicated. Perhaps the wild boars were too fast for their would-be captors 

Maybe they should invite Zhu Jianqiang (Strong-willed Pig) from China should take part in the event.

 

One evening in October,
When I was about one third sober,
I was taking home a load with manly pride;
My poor feet began to stutter,
So I lay down in the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Then we sang a song  “Fair weather,
When good fellas get together”,
Till a lady passing by was heard to say,
She says, “You can tell a man who boozes
By the company he chooses”,
As the pig got up and slowly walked away,
Slowly walked away,
Slowly walked away,
As the pig got up and he turned and winked at me
As he slowly walked away.
