Dear Mr. Spam,
Whilst browsing the internet I came across some very important information about pigs:

I thought this may be of interest to you.

I followed a few links and viewed many different breeds of swine. I also started researching the requirements of owning a mini pig as a pet. Apparently pigs are very intelligent and can be trained to sit and twirl around. They like to forage and dig for food with their snouts.

I hope that this email expands your knowledge in a topic which is dear to my heart and that we can discuss pigs in person sometime soon.
Kind regards,

Deerest Snoutling,

Thank you for your recent electronic correspondence. it was of grate interest to me!!!
a twirling pig?!? amazing!!!
My knowledge of this topic has doubled, as I now know that a group of pigs can be called  A DRIFT, A TEAM or A HERD, and that a group of wild pigs can be called A SOUNDER or A PASSEL. Also, a litter of piglets can be called A FARROW.
If a pig and a horse were to mate, their offspring would be called A PORSE or A HIG.
Perhaps we can eat a salty smokey sounder soon!!!

Kindest regards from Dr. Bazzatronling Schiermonnikoog Spam.

Celebrity Meat Dress.

January 1, 2011

Holiday time means I can get lost in the internet for a while and follow whichever celebrity links I like.

Starting off with an analysis of Lady Gaga’s meat dress by some New York butchers. She no doubt took inspiration from the Hats of Meat website, which always guarantees a good laugh upon browsing.

Moving along, I was delighted to see Kanye West has really pushed the theme of ancient Egypt in his recent fashion choices. He has been captured wearing a gigantic gold chain pendent of the God Horus. Link to image. I think even Flavor Flav would be impressed with that. Whilst on the topic of Flavor Flav, it’s hard not to a post a link to this picture, because it’s just so outrageous.

If you reside in Melbourne, you can enjoy Ancient Egyptian fever yourself when Tutankhamun comes to town in April, 2011. In the spirit of Kanye, I will be preparing a suitably large gold necklace for the event. Perhaps in the form of Sekhmet or Tawaret. On the subject of exhibitions, I think the Ballet Russes at the NGA is one to try and attend. Early 20th Century Russian & French designed costume.

In closing this snippet, I will mention that my celebrity internet research began at the Flavorwire website. I visit it from time to time and find it a good resource for choosing books to read. Happy New Year.
