    I could say udderly adorable or that photo is no pig in a poke, but I don’t want to hog all the bad puns.
    Excellent B & W composition. That’s all folks. πŸ™‚

    Joseph is such a clown. This is an old pig too. They don’t make them with teats now, I think! Or do they?

      Joseph’s always making me laugh and/or teaching me things.
      I hadn’t realised they don’t make toy pigs with udders anymore. I think I got this one from an op shop (thrift shops, I think you call them in the US). I think she has a lovely face. I happen to have been born in the year of the pig, I think that’s supposed to mean I’m gluttonous and gullible . . .

        Yes, she’s very realistic. I think most pigs now are made to be much less detailed. She’s a good one. Neither gluttonous nor gullible is a bad trait. πŸ™‚

          I’ve been looking at her, George, I think she might be a more expensive model rather than being old.

          I’d definitely prefer to be neither gluttonous nor gullible, George. But I can eat an entire packet of chocolate biscuits in one sitting and the people I live with have much fun telling me tall tales and watching my face as they do so. πŸ™‚

      No teats ! These genetically modified pigs and chickens have such dull lives. πŸ™‚
      Actually they have been growing pigs with extra ribs because BBQ ribs are so popular. if they could figure out how to get chickens to grow more wings they would do that to, unless they are and don’t want to tell us.

        NOOOOOOOO! 😦 I’m sure you made that up, Joseph, but the truth is not so different, eh? My sister used to have two chickens, they were such handsome creatures. One had rainbows in its black feathers. Then I think of battery hens – poor scrawny things with feathers pecked out and toes curled round the bottom bits of their tiny cages. So cruel. 😦

        With the pigs, it was more old style genetic modification – cross breeding till you get a pig that produces longer meatier ribs and includes an extra one. So far, no lab genetically modified animals are being used in food production. Not sure about plant – grains. Well,…… till pigs have wings – be grateful for pigeons in the park. πŸ™‚

    Have you read Margaret Atwood’s novel “Oryx and Crake”? It’s a dystopian novel about a not-so-far-off future filled with genetically modified creatures gone awry.

      No I haven’t read that, Mrs Daffodil, though I rather enjoy dystopian novels, especially the later work of J G Ballard.

      What a lovely little bunch of daffodils you’ve left me in the ‘recent comments’ list. πŸ™‚
