Arnold Ziffel--Genius Pig
Today, I want to pay special tribute to the famous genius pig Arnold Ziffel. Not only was he a star of television, but was also an accomplished abstract painter, once referred to as Porky Picasso, after his work entitled “Nude at a Filling Station” was banned. A pig of many talents, he could change the channels on the television to his favorite shows (and this was before the clicker), and could also write his name. He attended school (how many pigs do you know who went to school) and was known as a practical joker by fellow students. Once he fell in love with a Basset Hound named Cynthia Haney, but alas their love could never be. It was almost Shakespearian in its depictment.
