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.
