Inspired by a recent chat with a pal here, I post a tribute to two pigs. May all know: they lived, if briefly, on planet Earth.

I took shots of the pigs at an Oklahoma City auction house last weekend. The lovely pigs, wallowing beautifully in cool mud, were serene and intelligent. We tried to buy two charming, pink sisters who greeted us and were “people friendly,” but unfortunately, they had already been sold, for slaughter.

This photo is the last they ever will be alive, on this, their finaly day.

God speed, piggies.

    I can’t wait till they perfect the method of growing meat in a petri dish so these wonderful animals wouldn’t have to be raised for food. Goon on ya for immortalizing these two sisters!
