Three Little Pigs Bar-B-Q

These pigs doing their Rockettes-style high-kicking dance—what are they up to?

You'll hear many theories. To wit:

They've been branded with Bar, B, and Q so that they might properly glorify Three Little Pigs Bar-B-Q.

They've acquired tattoos and incorporated them into their routine.

They are exploiting fortuitous birthmarks.

No, no, and no.

The truth is that they are simply fans, boosters of a particular barbecue establishment.

And, like many fans, they engaged in a bit of body painting, making themselves over as living props. Just as rabid football fans invest emotionally in their favorite teams, so the three little pigs are heavily invested in the success of their favorite barbecue joint. When pigs die, they win.

No, we don't really understand the rules, either. So anyway, Go, Grills, Go!

Ugh, that restaurant is literally around the corner from my sister's house, I have to look at the sign every time I go visit her.

That's why I stopped visiting her.
