What is that supposed to be: a piggy bank for the International Savings Day? Is it playable with real strings inside? Who made it?

BTW: may I use your picture on my facebook site?

To all of your questions: I don't quite know! I got it off of facebook, myself. You're welcome to its use.

Pretty sure it's part of a public art display, e.g. the "big pig gig" that Cincinnati has held on two occasions. Lexington, North Carolina had a similar "Pigs in the City" display. (We did the same thing in my Lexington, only we used horses--naturally--not pigs.)

Yes, also very similar to Bechswine and Swinegraeber. But different from (oh dear) Gruntrian (sorry).

I actually have a genuine pig call from my days as a Hoosier in Southern Indiana. I daresay I'm the only one on this site with such a claim. Unfortunately, my hog callin' is better than my pie-ann-uh playin'.

Of course, Monica is from Ol' Kaintuck, maybe she's called a hog in her time.

As a one time teenage son, I'd have to admit there wasn't much difference between me and the hogs come dinner time. Except maybe the hogs had better manners.

I'll tell you one thing, they got weak hog callers in Illinois. This is embarrassing.

ROFL. Nice alternative names, particularly the german brands seem good at namebending for this purpose laugh

That pigpiano even has the matching logos inside!

>who else kind of wants one? smile

So you want to HAVE one?

I was going to have a ham sandwich... now I think I'll just open a can of soup.

I liked the young guy wearing the sun glasses.

I wonder if they could work up a choral number?

I found the source. As they say on the site:

"We design and build prototypes. More recently was the production of the fiberglass pigs for Seattle's "Pigs on Parade", one of our favorite projects."

Looking at the upholstery on the inside of the Swineway reminded me of an old joke:

While out on a dig, the brothers Archie and Olly Gist unearthed a rather unusual box. Inside they found a very little man seated at a very little piano. Obviously surprised by the discovery, Archie asked "Who are you?" The little man cheerfully replied "I'm Johannes Brahms." Taken totally aback, Olly queried "What are you doing in there?" "I'm decomposing." came the reply.

(you may groan now)

In fact, Brahms was known to be a bit of a ham.

That pic is from a pig parade- see this for a whole set of colorful pigs

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mjolson/PigParade.htm

swineway.com apparently is a registered name, registered by some June Bachman from bWyse in Washington. But they don't seem to have a webpage. Not sure if they are related to that pig we see?

And then I remembered the pigs of Schweinfurt (Pig Ford) Germany. They are all over town and painted to be related to the local sponsoring business; "Pig Mac" for example. I like "Albert Schweinstein", but the puns in German and English go downhill from there.

Schweinfurt Has Pigs

Click on a picture (more than 80) to see the whole pig.
