Spawn of Hogzilla

OK, you FOX news watchers probably already saw this story, but it's so amazingly wierd, I'll pass it on.

Photoshop scam.

Yeah, that has urban legend written all over it. Nevertheless, I suppose that, once they dug it up and measured everything, Hogzilla was still not a little piggy you'd want to meet in a dark forest.

And this one might be the same -- although a kid tracking down a monster pig on a game farm armed with a .50 caliber pistol while a platoon of rifle-toting minders gave him cover doesn't strike me as all that heroic.

Still, all this pig talk is giving me a mean craving for bacon.

I guess we'll have to wait till the taxidermist gets done with the mount.

Imagine walking into a dark room with THAT head on a wall - ahhh!

I wonder why we never heard of such big pigs before? Were they not around 50-100 years ago too?

Some pig indeed Charlotte.

Obviously the pictures are photoshopped as teleken said. It is pretty obvious from the pictures on the site that something is not quite right.
The thing is, I think the taxidermist is just doing the head, and so you won't be able to get a confirmed reading of size and weight. I'm sure it is big, but not as big as the the picture.
I can't believe these losers have me spending my time talking about this.

I, for one, welcome our new pig overlords

Do they even have Photoshop in Alabama?

Today it was revealed that the pig was domestic and recently released into the wild. Wow, what a heroic kid, shooting an animal that was probably just standing there minding its own business. Just another example of someone gaining attention with B.S., an all too common occurance in our tabloid-obsessed culture.
