Flying Pig


"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"to talk of many things, of shoes and ships
and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings,
and why the sea is boiling hot,
And whether pigs have wings."

~Lewis Carol~

  11. A flying pig does seem odd, but then it really is an attention getter because it's not a rooster.
