  The Peppermint Pig has its roots in Victorian holiday tradition, for which pigs were symbolic of good health, happiness, and prosperity.  Peppermint Pigs were made as a tasty treat to bring good luck for the new year. The tradition is to smash the pig, pass around the plate, eat a piece for good luck and share a story about...

Ormie from Ormie Pig on Vimeo.   Ormie the pig sees a cookie jar on top of the fridge and puts on his thinking cap to try to get the cookies.  This hilarious short film has won festival awards across the country.  Even though it's long, it'll definitely put a smile on your face.widestass.com...

  I'm a huge fan of Stephan Pastis, the creator of the Pearls Before Swine comic strip. Here's a strip of Pig using his blogger status as an icebreaker. Suave he is not, but that's what makes the comic so clever. You'll be seeing a lot...

  It's winter time, and as I'm sitting at the computer right now I find that my room can get cold and drafty this time of year.  Sure, I could be practical and put on a sweater or a jacket or a blanket or turn the heat up, but I saw a...

  Miru Kim, a creative artist, is doing an art exhibit at Art Basel Miami called 'I Like Pigs and Pigs Like Me' as part of her series, 'The Pig That Therefore I Am.'  Even though she's a germaphobe, she undergoes this art performance where she spends...

  Nakh-Nakh the Pig is a symbol for a political movement against Vladimir Putin's incumbent party in Russia.  One of the founders of Nakh-Nakh is Boris Nemtsov, a former deputy prime minister and now co-leader of the People's Freedom Party.  The People's Freedom Party was refused registration by Russia's Justice Ministry earlier this year.  As...

  This pig power strip looks kind of creepy but the concept is pretty cool.  I often have problems with regular power strips because big plugs and adapter plugs cover up multiple outlets on the strip.  The design of the power pig makes it easy to use and charge lots of devices while conserving space.  Unfortunately,...

  A pig named Zhu Jianqiang or "Strong-Willed Pig" was praised for surviving the terrible Sichuan, China earthquake of May 2008.  This earthquake was an 8.0-magnitude quake that left over 60,000 dead and caused over $50 billion in damage.  Zhu was buried under the rubble of his sty for 36...

  If you're a huge Reddit fan like I am, you should check out this Android app called Baconreader. It's easy to use, there's faster loading time, and it has a more polished interface than "Reddit is Fun." Baconreader is a great looking app and the design makes it easier to share links,...

  Today I decided to make pork tenderloins after having a conversation with my mom. I found a simple 30 minute recipe by Rachael Ray online. While the recipe is simple (there are only seven ingredients), the combination of garlic (which I love in my cooking) and balsamic...
