He's no pig, he's just walkin' bacon

Bacon on the hoof

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Sometimes the photos are just too good to pass up - like Phil Spector's hair a short time back.

And so today here's a great shot of a 4-H lad giving his pet porker a drink of water. The 4-H is alive and well in California, with kids raising animals for market and learning all the lessons that the people from PETA would prefer they not learn.

Where I grew up in upstate New York, the 4-H was a really big deal and kids learned not to get too close to the animals they raised, but still to be compassionate about their treatment.

Looking at this particular pink guy, it's hard to believe that he will be pork loin and Oscar Mayer bacon strips in the near future. Looking into those eyes is enough to make you agree with the PETA wingnuts.

Then again, I really like bacon.
