Tiny Pink Pig Army of 144 Rightous Pigs
First I was in a bookstore to buy a candle and I came across a jar of hundreds of tiny wittle pigs for sale on thier counter. I love anything small and pink and bought a few for friends. They had other cuties like tiny devil duckies as well, this was at Phoenix and Dragon on Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs GA.
At some point it came to be that I decided everyone needed a tiny pink plastic pig and being the Discordian I am felt it was my duty to make sure everyone had a pig. To this end I decided to Pig, Fall Frolic the next pagan gathering I was set to attend. I was going to tie a pig in a bag on each tent in the dead of night at the festival. Then with some more thinking I discovered the pigs had little voices. They in fact each have a agenda and propaganda. They were going to say things at the festival like, Pigs Oink! Pigs Dance! Pigs relax and are not uptight. Pigs are not you Mom. Pigs get all the Play. Pigs have alot of curly tail. Pigs will not fuck your Mom. Pigs go left. Pigs go right. Pigs are not litter, please retain or dispose of properly.
I can't remember exactly how it came up but we decided we needed to Pig city hall. The city of Atlanta has been taking people's property for unpaid taxes or other bills like solid waste. Selling the property then keeping a hold of ALL of the proceeds after only a cursory attempt to locate the owner. In short they attempted to use this to get a good friend's property and it occured to me I needed to pig city hall. This is what the pigs will say when we do that. Pigs do not steal. Pigs are not greedy. Pigs respect property rights. This is going to be the next pigging event I do.
now at some point I figured I needed to find out where the bookstore had gotten all the little piggies and I discovered....
Archie McPhee, Outfitters of Popular Culture since 1980 and where the Pigs come from...
it turns out they were used for some sort of game made up by people in the past as well...
so when we found the piggies we discovered you get 144 for the mere price of 9.95$
here is the link to buy the tiny piggies 1 army at a time
now 144 is a very powerful number... that is the number of rightous men born to each generation in a certain religion... so it came to be that there was an Army of 144 Rightous Pigs!
more later! and a bit on how the pigging went down at Fall Frolic and other plans we have for the swine... please share and link this community.
The piggies are art, the piggies are for you. If you need to say something to the world, let the swine speak. As long as it is just and decent or not so decent the pigs are there. Please don't use the Pigs to be mean or terrorize, or to cause more harm to this World. Pigs heal not destroy. Pigs inform and teach and show the way. Pigs can have a little vengeance, something needs to. Pigs can be bold and proud. Pigs are LOVE and Pigs are LOVERS.
Never underestimate the power of pork.
THIS IS A INTERNET MEME SPREAD THE PORKY LOVE!
