Karen and I spent the weekend in Cincinnati, or Porkopolis as we discovered it was nicknamed. We saw pictures, sculptures and t-shirts of flying pigs everywhere. They were even on top of the smokestacks downtown. It made us very curious as to what this was all about.
During dinner I asked our waitress (a lifelong Cincinnati resident) what the deal with the flying pigs was about. She said “I think it has something to do with pigs”. I said, “Oh… how interesting”…
It all reminded me of a wonderful song by Trout Fishing In America called Prom Night In Pig Town. If you have not heard it you might want to check it out.
