    After the Harvest season (Halloween to Thanksgiving), we like to feed the pumpkins to the pigs at the local farm.

    Watching a pig eat really demonstrates where our english expression comes from, and also makes you pay attention to your table manners better!

    Any rate, they do like their pumpkins.

    I've seen humans with far worse table manners at a pie eating contest. These pigs are doing ok in comparison.

    What was crazy was how fast they got into the pumpkins. The pumpkins went over whole (at least these two did) and I was startled how quickly the larger pigs got right into the pumpkin.

    Ha ha ha ha ha! That's awesome. They look like some weird species where the pumpkin is part of their head, lol.

  6. Nice. The old saying is if you have a body to get rid of, feed it to the pigs. There will be nothing left.
