Yes you read that right. It wouldn't be a story otherwise.

It'll be the same for Romney when he loses the election and his party turns on him in a snarling, impotent rage.

I am impressed, he was useful as pig feed. That's more than any other American can say.

I didn't know Austrians had developed a taste for human meat.

That's Ostriches to you. They peck people to death. AKA when peckers attack.

I am just glad that Old School is not a pig farmer. Also: refraining to make any jokes about his fine daughter(s) - still in the coast guard doing THE RIGHT THING(tm)?

Why don't pigs eat ostriches?

I've always been more of a soylent orange person myself. With some soylent purple for dessert.

I bet his brother killed him for the farm. Domestic hogs only eat what you give them, to include carrion, but they will attack threats, especially small carnivores and rodents. They rarely attack humans, especially not the one who has always been feeding them (they're as smart as dogs). I've never heard of a domestic hog intentionally killing a person. Maybe if they thought it was a threat and vulnerable.

They have long been used by the mob to get rid of corpses, though. If hungry, they will eat everything: bones, skull, and all, and maybe shit the teeth out. :lol:

even wild pigs don't eat you if they are used to you feeding them. Well, unless you do something stupid. Scratching their back? Not stupid. Pick up a young one? Extremely stupid.

Soylent purple is nice after some Mongolian BBQ.
