Muddy Man Meets His Day

That I wasn't acting qua swineherd when, this morning, I took a well-fattened Muddy Man to the abattoir was hardly a consolation.

At first we tried luring him up a ramp onto the truck with M&M's, said to be a great treat with pigs. But he was too savvy.

We eventually just picked him up and lifted him in -- at about 200 pounds!

I'm proud to say that Muddy Man weighed in at 260 pounds, which means that he gained more than a pound a day, on average.
