Naptown barBAYq

Ahoy there, spirit of adventure! What ho, joy of discovery! Be addressed nautically, thrill of conquest!

How eager the pig is to seek out new lands where he and his kind can be butchered, barbecued, and washed down with beer!

Setting out from old Annapolis, into the Chesapeake, the pig speeds along merrily.

It stirs one. It intrigues one. Let's be honest: it disgusts one. Because we see how much energy the pig has for this, how much passion he puts into it. (He's so excited, his chef's hat is floating!) And when we consider what all of his passion is being funneled into—that is, death—it takes the wind out of our sails.
