Marjorie and Boris were named today as Britains fattest pigs. Here is a factfile on the pair.
The pair are crossbreed Gloucester Old Spot/Large White pigs.
Boris weighs 925lbs (420kg).
He measures more than 7ft from snout to tail and is at least 3ft tall.
Marjorie weighs about 670lbs (300kg).
She is 6ft long and 3ft 6 ins tall.
Their combined weight is more than a classic Mini.
Boris sires 175 babies every year, bringing his total number of piglets to up to 600.
He could produce 6,250 sausages, 112lbs of bacon the equivalent of 3360 thin rashers of back and streaky bacon or 600 good, thick rashers of back bacon from the loin 54lbs of chops, 72lbs of ham, 32lbs of shoulder.

Would he be fit to eat as he is a boar? My experience is boar meat has an extremely strong smell and is almost inedible.
Might have to cut his cohones out and feed him corn for about 90 days to allow the boar smell to disappear.
I've got an old copy somewhere around here. It's hilarious reading.
Better diet than Wu fed his hogs in Deadwood.
What state did they say there congress critters came from?
how much is that in stone?
They look kind of scrawny. They usually have a big pig at the State Fair of Texas. Neither of these would make the cut.
I think it was the drunken state.
They remind me of Snopes Clinton and his lovely wife.
Piers Morgan’s parents?
The Empress has her work cut out for her to win the Fattest Pig Prize for Clarence against this bunch!
But I’m sure P.G will find a way...
