News, but not the serious kind
Repent, for the end is near!
Hey, Blog Guy! You used to warn us about signs of the coming apocalypse, but you haven’t mentioned that recently. Does that mean everything is getting better?
No you don’t.
I am not making this up. Some “conceptual artist” is having professionals tattoo the pigs.
What’s a “conceptual” artist?
I think it means not a real artist at all, and possibly not even a real human. Anyway, as if pigs don’t have enough problems in their sad lives, these guys will be displayed as part of art exhibitions, and their skins will be sold to collectors once they’re slaughtered. I’m pretty sure that’s called a lose-lose situation.
