    That's sometimes a side effect...of having 100 legs to insert into his pants one leg at a time.

    Kentucky hams were traditionally made from Hampshire hogs. Hampshire hogs (a thin rind hog) were imported from England in the late 1820's because they were a hearty breed that foraged well on their own. The most common name for these hogs at this time was Thin Rind hogs.

    Smithfield hams come from the town of Smithfield in Isle of Wight county, near the Hampton Roads section of Virginia. Until 1926 the hogs had to be peanut fed.

    We’ve all seen pigs wallowing in the mud..
    But how about swimming in a crystal clear sea?

    [​IMG]

    On the uninhabited Bahaman Island of Big Major Cay, that’s exactly what they do.
    A population of wild aquatic swine rules the island, and many have taken to swimming out to the boats offshore,
    in the hope of being rewarded with a tasty snack.

    I wonder if anyone has ever *fished* a piglet :eek:

    My husband told me he heard a news story that an American woman with no ties to England woke up from general anesthesia speaking with a British accent.

    When I was a kid I would sometimes call Time and Temperature. Also, something called "Dial-a-Prayer."

    A sharp wit is a fine thing, but a sharp tongue a disgrace.

    I'm confused if it's blasphemy or redundancy to mention SexiSuri in the useless information thread.

    Will have to consult with members of the Vortexian Council on this... @Sentinel @donquijote @gut wax

    With such a big head, he must do a lot of thinking. Oxygen supply is of paramount importance. :D

    There are 10 hurdles to deal with in a 110-meter race. I have twice that many to clear in my 20-day race through New Year's Day.
