we used to say “the fender makes it tender”, but I’m afraid Swino is beyond that point

Our late, greatly missed Golden Retriever, Prior Lake Jake, could consume two 12 oz cans of beer. Then, a massive burp and some bubbles from his nose would signal it was time for a nap.

At least he marinated himself. The ribs, chops, and the roasts should be very tender.

Fiona Findley of the Main Roads department told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation: "We had hoped he could become our mascot"

One more reason to love Australia. A government department was going to make a drunken pig its mascot.

"There was another incident where he was admonished by flight attendants for using his smartphone on a plane."

Seems to be a real troublemaker. Probably a Tea Party member to boot.
