Why is it so hard to find decent pictures of this thing? This is a picture of the real pig, the old one, not the thing I rode.

My caption for this picture: 4-year-old Luke Woodall peered out from the inside of the giant pig monster that had swallowed him a few minutes earler, shortly before being dissolved by its gastric juices.

I wonder if that kid is related to the Woodall brothers I went to junior high school with, Chuck and Tony. Chuck was a huge Nelson-like bully of a kid. I can still remember the day that Chuck first grokked the concept of nerdness: "Man, all them retards is smart!". Before that, he had simply called all of his victims "retard".
