Tough economic times have reached Main Street, Suicidefood City. A desperate "food" animal faces a sobering choice: stay put, hoping to find (very) temporary employment with a large outfit, or hit the road, making do with whatever odd jobs come along. Of course, for a suicidal animal, the odd jobs can be very odd indeed.
Just ask our hobo pig here. Things are so lean, he's taken his bindlestiff all the way to Hobo BBQ Grill Rental & Catering and his first shot at a payday in months.
If all goes well, he'll be roasting on a spit later in the week. Hey, it beats sitting around watching the paint peel while your savings drip away one dime at a time.
Addendum: More indigent animals on the way to be exploited.
Addendum 2 (11/21/09): And another vagabond hog, this one walking beneath the bleached symbol of his imminent death.
