Nothing improves your day more than the appearance of a mystery pig:

He’s the mystery pig of Matraville who appeared out of nowhere to stun a group of youngsters yesterday – not that they minded.

The Munchkins Kindy kids were thrilled to discover the 100kg pig had wandered in to the grounds of the early learning centre.

Munchkins Kindy owner Greg Stores noticed the pig at 10am.

“It’s not every day that you walk out the door and see a pig,” Mr Stores said.

Insert joke here about living in Michael Moore’s neighbourhood. The mystery pig has since been moved, but people are still obeying this youngster’s stern directive:

My name is Claudia and I am 9 years old. I love pigs they are my favorite animal. They are very smart and kind. They love kids too. Please do not hurt the pig.

The sudden appearance of a mystery whale, however … that’s a whole other issue.

    1. One imagines the whale’s thoughts:

      Oh crap!  Not seals.  Kayakers!

    1. I love pigs they are my favorite animal.

      Mine, too, Claudia!

      Hey, who gets to clean the inside of that kayak?

    1. Regrettably, the killer whale video is a fake:

      Er, does this also mean that pigs aren’t Claudia’s favorite animal?

    1. We had a piglet turn up on the lawn just down the street from my Old mans place. The lawn it decided to stray onto was our Muslim Christmas Islanders. (It was a genuine stray pig, why it chose that lawn over the other 30 in the street i have no idea)
      Dad lured it back to our yard where it tragically and suddenly ran into a hammer and became a roast piglet.

    1. It’s not every day that you walk out the door and see a pig

      It’s not everyday you wake up next to one either, but Southern Comfort is a powerful intoxicant.

      Don’t you worry.  He’ll be roasted to perfection.

  1. It’s almost like Dr. Seuss:

    The mystery pig of Matraville
    Appeared out of nowhere today
    The kids were delighted, and Mr. Stores
    Had this wise thing to say:
    “You don’t open your door and find a pig
    Just any old ordin’ry day.”
