View Full Version : Oink, oink! The loneliest little piggie in the world...

...is apparently a Chinese refugee piggie (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8038368.stm) having been granted 'refugee status' in Afghanistan (of all places), almost certainly escaping sudden death in his country of origin from being rapidly served up as barbecued / steamed spare ribs etc. Was there any subliminal political message the Chinese were attempting to convey when 'gifting a pig' to Afghanistan?! :confused:

Anyway, I always imagined it (the pig) would have been more likely to be an RCMP officer serving on Baffin Island or summat.

Poor Khanzir, left all alone to ponder about beijing simply slaughtered and eaten, or being subjected to death by stoning by religious nutcases in a foreign place. :sad: Having said that, he's faring much better than the 300,000 or so pigs in Egypt at the moment...?! :uhoh:

I'd like to set up a "Save Khanzir - send 'im a mate, 'afore it's too late" fund. Can anyone help? Any contributions leftover and not required could be used to fund Baffin Island RCMPs or similar on vacations to Thailand. :ok:

It's actually not the only pig in Afghanistan - they forgot to count all the murderous Taliban barstewards who incite and carry out suicide bombings and the politicians - right up to Karzai - who want to see their womenfolk remain uneducated and locked up at home, ready for the next sexual transgression.
