WheresMyBackpack challenged bloggers to post something this week that touched on the theme of ‘pink.’ With the arrival of spring, I had no problem. Spring and summer mean festivals and fairs in Ohio. Which often feature my favorite version of pink: Pigs!
Cincinnati is dotted with artistic pigs as part of its Big Pig Gig, but nothing beats live pigs and pig races. So much fun to watch.
What makes the races even more fun is hearing the announcer call out their names as they race around the track for the Oreo finish. They had names like Hammah Montana and Pigtail-or Swift. I believe Hammah won.
We don’t own pigs, but thought up plenty of new names for female contenders:
Pork-tia De Rossi
Almost makes you want to buy a pig to race, doesn’t it? What would you name yours?
