• The Clovis BBQ Championship pig is having Matrix-style illusions of experience while his paralyzed body lies in a torpid, pre-barbecue state.Soaring abve California in a hot-air balloon? Rodeo-ing on horseback? Whatever the explanation, this pig seems to be having the time of his life! What's next? Scuba diving? Rollercoastering? Bushwhacking through Amazonia à la Indiana Jones?
• The clovis BBQ Championship has something to do with pigs given once-in-a-lifetime experiences before they, you know... die?
• Someone finally invented fantasy camp for "food" animals.
We won't begrudge the pig his light-hearted adventures. After all, his imminent death has been foreseen, a death which will find him beset by the souls of all those kinsmen whose deaths he encouraged.
Let him have his (probably fictitious) fun. He won't have many happy days where he's headed.
