Oinky Independence Day

Well, folks, if this doesn’t inspire you to smoke some patriotic pork on the 4th of July, I’m afraid it’s a lost cause.

Now that's the America I know and love!

For those who would question the patriotism of swine, look no further than this storefront window. The fella here (officially a boar) is like Uncle Sam himself, on those casual days when he drops the top coat and bow tie.

I’m not sure about Petunia Pig’s outfit (or her snout, for that matter), but I love his overalls. I think if pigs had to dress themselves, they’d choose overalls. Now if I could only figure out why he’s pretending to smoke…

Happy 4th of July, y’all.
