I Strongly Identify With This Pig Running in a Hailstorm

On Saturday, in Billings, Montana, it hailed, and I lit out for the territory ahead of the rest.


My amazing ride was captured, according to the Billings Gazette, by Rick Lindholm, who was visiting his mother when this pig came through.

“We were sitting on the porch watching the storm,” he said. “I had my phone out to get some hail video, and then I see something and I think, ‘Holy cow, what is that? It’s a pig.”

Sure is, Rick.

“It was squealing because it was getting whacked by hail, the poor little guy,” Lindholm said.

Some neighbors found the pig cowering under a car and got a rope around him so they could lead him to safety once the storm passed.

How does that rhyme go? This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home. This little piggy got on the internet because he went wee-wee-wee all through the hailstorm, and you can watch the video below.

People always tryin’ to tell me that pigs are so smart and we shouldn’t eat them. Doesn’t look like that little porker had much sense in him to get caught out in a hailstorm.
