This is not me...

...but I do feel a bit like this today.

This is actually Big Red, the winning pig in the Big Boar Contest at the Iowa State Fair. Big Red weighs in at 1,203 pounds, which is actually NOT a record but certainly seems big enough to me.

See the picture? This is pretty much Big Red's daily agenda. He wakes up in the evening to eat five gallons of whatever big boars eat, then he goes right back to sleep.

I'm with Big Red. Eleven days of state fair fun (and state fair food) will do that to you.

He was ginormous, indeed. And so was the number two pig. I guess the female pigs like 'em, though. :-) Janet
