I'm a Hog for Que, Baby!

This ponytailed freak of nature represents the first sincere, full-blown hippie animal we've profiled! Bring on the marching bands, for we are making history!

(We've seen animal hippies before, sure, but none this genuine. This one, for instance, was the suicidefoodist equivalent of an undercover narc at a peace rally.)

This fellow is a (temporarily) living and breathing mass of discontinuities. Now, on top of the standard well-adjusted animals happy about the prospect of their imminent destruction, we can add the discrepancy of an ostensibly vegetarian creature (hippies are "all" vegetarians, right?) eagerly cooking—and hogging—meat. And just look at him! He's grinning and peace-signing like there's no tomorrow. (Which for him there might not be.)

It's true, though: The Grateful Dead's "Steal Your Face" symbol has never made more sense!

Oy. ("Oink"?) The fact that yesterday would have been Ron McKiernan's - aka Pigpen - 65th birthday (among whose signature songs was "I'm a Hog for You, Baby") adds a particularly horrifying "I don't know what" to this. Coincidence? I think not!

As pit master for the I'm a Hog for Que, Baby! competition BBQ team, I am humbled and indeed honored to be included in your fine collection. I am indeed an avid Deadhead, and the name of the team is in fact a tribute to the Pigpeg GD song mentioned above. The pig in the logo is, in fact, a caricature of me, easily recognizable to anyone who has met me.

Suicide meats - rock on!
