Camera Critters

Leaving the parking lot I spotted this huge pig being pulled behind the truck. Silly me, I thought it was probably advertising a BBQ stall at the market we had just left at Lake Anne. I was so totally focused on the pig that I didn't see the writing until enlarged on the computer screen. Meet Porky, the Dulles Rail Pig....

a protest pig.

"Pork" is a name used for wasteful government spending.

Camera Critters, another great meme created by Misty Dawn and hosted by Misty and Tammy. You can find other critter photos by clicking here.

Wow. In the words of E.B. White (Charlotte's Web) "That's some pig".

Denise, I had to smile when I read this. Here in Australia, people are so cautious about the pig flu going round. Every malady is 'pig flu'. And just when we are about to embark on a new pie shop and guess what's on the menu? Yes, Pork pies. I can't help but think of the movie "Babe", where, at the end, the farmer looks down and says "That'll do, Pig. That'll do".

This is just too great! Too much fun! I love the pig (front and back) and I love what it's standing for. I agree -- end the waste!
