Suicide Snacks: quickies 8

It's been close to a year since we allowed ourselves a moment to rest and offer up another installment of our beloved series of "Suicide Snacks." Sometimes, like today, we're just not up to the rigors of our self-imposed campaign.

Can you read the inspiring legend on her sash? She has been crowned Miss Prolificacy, the livestock-makingest pig there is! She's a one-sow pork-producing machine!

This exotic beauty, this made-up, be-kohled octopus in Portland, Oregon, wiggles her sensual arms, beckoning all comers to dine on… well, herself.

Bonus: Impossibly, this seductress is only the third octopus we have ever featured!

Really? It's just us? We're the only ones creeped out by a pig with a beard? Okay. Fair enough.

We're not sure what we're seeing here. The weary satisfaction of another factory shift competently worked, perhaps. Or maybe the muted joy of a lobster facing his imminent boiling out there on the factory floor.

Why would anyone put a beard on a pig?

From the BPEX:(British Pig Industry) page: their aim is to have a sow producing 2000 kilos of pig meat in a year........beat that, you in the blue ribbon....

hah! the greek cuisine also had a huge inflatable purple octopus which hovered over the door on their corner location downtown. fortunately, because of bad management and whatnots, the place has finally been shut down.
